“The best way to go into business is with high hopes and low overhead”

"The best way to go into business is with high hopes and low overhead” is a business quotation of unknown origin. “With high hopes and low overhead” was cited in print in 1973, but the first part of the quotation was not present. “The best way to go into business is with high hopes and low overhead” was published in a 1980 book of quotations.


15 March 1973, Kingsport (TN) Times-News, ‘Stone Drive ‘Circus’ Steals Quietly Away” by Joan Roesgen, pg. 1-B, col. 1:
Crickett has his case put off till Wednesday, and on Saturday he and Dykes are out there (Col. 2—ed.) on the auction block with high hopes and low overhead.
