One of the great things about teenagers is that they are idealistic. They are full of ideas and energy.
Are you one of those idealistic teens, and you’re looking for a great way to channel your energy while making money? Here are some small business ideas that you can start as a teenager.
Are you the type who loves the kitchen and experimenting? A bakery might just be a great idea for you. Start with choosing some of your favorite recipes. You can begin by selling them in school to your friends and nearby neighbors, and let them spread the word.
Chances are they will be your best marketers. Starting an Instagram account to showcase some of the goodies might be a great plan to attract customers.
Post your delicious baked goods to get your followers tempted. You can go to local hospitals and nursing homes to ask them if you can sell your goodies in their cafeteria.
Just be sure they are easy to eat, and not messy. Doctors and nurses who wear scrubs hate getting their men’s scrub sets dirty. Start with keeping your prices low so people will not hesitate to try them.
Buying and Reselling
Do you love shopping around for bargains? Buying items for resell purposes might be a wonderful idea for you! Spend your free time looking around for great deals and sales.
You can sign up for some great deal websites that can help you catch and take advantage of a company’s price mistakes and crazy deals.
You can resell them locally by running garage sales or selling them online. Whichever way you choose, have fun, and enjoy making money.
If you live in a neighborhood with lots of people and dogs, this may be a great low investment business. Create a good and appealing flyer to let people know about your dog walking services, and what you have to offer. Hand them out at local places where they will get noticed.
Walk around with business cards and hand them out to people who you see walking their dog. Drivers, doctors, and other people who work long hours will jump to use your services.
Be sure to invest in good shoes for yourself so you will be comfortable all day. If you are an extrovert and hate spending time yourself, getting a friend to do this with you will make the job fun and enjoyable.
Do you love kids and have a lot of patience? Why not start your very own Sunday clubs? You will have to decide how many kids you can handle and what type of activities you will offer. Arts ‘n crafts? Food decorating? Another thing you’ll need to decide what age group you will want to start with.
Starting with a popular age in your neighborhood will make it easier for you to get a full group. Have a beautiful, cute, and kid-friendly flyer designed to distribute and get the word out. Ask your parents and friends to spread the word to their friends by emailing, whatsapping, or messaging your flyer. Enjoy your Sundays, and of course, the cash earned.
As you can see, there are so many ideas of what you can do. The best way to start is to know your hobbies and strengths and what you have to offer to the world. If you enjoy children and pets then go into Sunday Clubs, Babysitting, and Dog Walking businesses.
If you are more of an introvert and would do not enjoy that much interaction, then buying and selling things online might be a better choice for you.
And there are many other home-based business ideas, too! Whichever business you choose, we hope you have much luck and success. Remember that the beginning is always difficult, but with enough perseverance, you will see profits!
