Do not engage in illegal activities to make your money whereas there are businesses you can do on your own, even if you do not know the mechanics or skills you can still pay to receive trainings.
Put yourself in check and know whether you have right skills for the business. The worst thing that could ever happen to you is going into a business you can’t manage or you do not have the idea on how it’s been done.
