Starting your own business on the side is one of the most powerful ways to take control of your life and make extra money month after month.

You can start with just a few hours a week — even if you have a job. And best of all, you get to choose your hours, pick projects you find exciting, and meet interesting people.

The nature of small business ownership is what keeps many entrepreneurs going when times get tough and the forecast begins to darken. It’s what encourages entrepreneurs to willingly share information with their peers.

Apple, founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, started out in the business of kit computers with the Apple I. This initial production run, although popular, will mainly be remembered for helping the company get enough capital to build the Apple II in 1977 – the same year Apple officially incorporated. Wozniak primarily built both these computers and Jobs handled the marketing side.
