What is the best thing to do with your savings? How much money do you need to start an online business?

Even little money that you have spared can help you to say "No" if you feel enforced to do something you do not want to do or to say "Yes" if an opportunity appears on the horizon.

I've recently come across a pool that asked about the reason why I am not saving money. For me, personally, the answers were merely excuses, tons of reasons why people are not saving money. I think that saving money is a responsibility for everyone regardless of their financial situation. There is always a way to save money, even if it's just a few pennies. It is easy to become enslaved "just" for a reason not having savings. Even little money that you have spared can help you to say "No" if you feel enforced to do something you do not want to do or to say "Yes" if an opportunity appears on the horizon.

Buying a new TV or another gadget is not an investment. I am thinking more about educational purposes, learning new stuff or even experiencing new things, like making a trip to a different country (but again, the all-inclusive trip is not an investment either).

You can have a look at Crunchbase find a startup that operates in the area that is closest to your interest. These startups are getting millions of dollars of investment.
