Early Entrepreneurs

Quote of the Day
“Everyday is a gift, that’s why they call it the present”  $

It is such a busy month in October. Especially when you have school and halloween and all this stuff. I’m going to start my new business. If you know me then you know I am a major entrepreneur. I’m pretty sure it started two years ago, when I realized there are plenty of ways to earn money if you’re young and are not old enough to get a job. 
    Businesses are fun and easy, but only if you’re willing to put enough hard work into them. You can do a bunch of things. Sell homemade crafts, sell homemade products, design cards, sell clothing, walk dogs, or babysitting. That’s just the beginning of the list. Those are the things I would do. But there are lots more ideas. You could even tutor a younger person if your smart in a certain subject.             
    But before you start a business, consider how much time you’ll have to put into it, and if it’s the right thing for you. You don’t want to be walking dogs if you absolutely hate them. Another tip* don’t do a business just to get money. Do it because you enjoy doing that thing. For example: I like baking treats so I started selling cookies that I made. 
    Another tip* don’t make things too expensive. People like buying from home businesses because they know they can get the things they like for a cheaper price. The cheaper it is, the more people will buy from it. 
    Secondly, don’t do businesses when you have a busy schedule. Rushing to get stuff done is not professional. You want to take your time, whether it’s making a product or walking dogs.
    If you making a product, be sure to be clean. Don’t forget that you’re selling this to other people. Would you want dirty hands in your body lotion?
    Now, also a major question: where to sell? How will you get your business out in the open? How will people know about it? Well, you can make business cards and hand them out, post signs around the neighborhood, talk to your neighbors, email your friends, make a website, make a blog; any of the above works. Tell your family to tell their friends or people you know to spread the word. 
    You can sell anywhere starting from door-to-door or sending the product by mail. Whatever it is, make sure it’s a good way to get your business out there.
