I’ve recently been really into helping students make money on their own by organizing and developing their own business. As I’ve pondered the millions of ideas out there I came up with 5 of the the best and easiest ones out there with the least amount of start-up cash needed. If you feel that you’re son or daughter or if you yourself are a student looking to make extra cash this summer or maybe next fall and you’d like to become your own boss and have the ability to make a decent amount of money then this article is definitely something you’ll enjoy reading.
I am going to go over 4 business ideas and then at the end I hope that you have found one of them interesting enough to give it a try. If you feel that there wasn’t anything in this article suitable for you then I insist that you do some research because the market is hot at this time, especially for students and taking advantage of this hot market will be to your advantage. Good luck!
Run Errands: I don’t know if you’ve noticed but these days time is really tight and most people just don’t have enough time to get everything on their daily to-do lists done anymore. Starting an errands business would be great. Especially for high school students who are looking to not be inside of the house since they are now have a license. This business doesn’t require any start-up cash at all. All that is needed is some advertising and word of mouth can be the solution. Offer your services to family and make sure to get at least half of the cash up front.
Ebay Seller: Now this might sound like something a student can’t do, but that assumption is wrong. Most students know at least a little bit about Ebay and the chance to make money with Ebay is definitely there. All you need to do is have someone lend you their unwanted items to put them up for sale. You will charge a commission based on how much the items sold for. You can also specify that you will not handle deliveries; this will allow you more time to work on getting more sales. This business idea is great and all you need is a little Ebay selling knowledge which could be gained by doing a little research on their site.
Repairing: Are you good at fixing things? Maybe you know about something that other people don’t and repairing it just comes easy to you. Well if this sounds like you then offering your services can be just the start you need. Again there is no need for any start-up cash and the jobs will for sure come by putting out the word of mouth.
Baby sitting: Everyone knows that babysitting is a job that will be consistent and never fail. It’s not like if someone can just have enough babysitting and therefore jumping into this market by offering your services will do you good in many ways. Other than the awesome references that you can make you will also be able to generate a steady amount of money. All that is needed for this job is some patience, word of mouth, and maybe some fliers to let people know outside of your close circle.
Now that I have told you about these wonderful 5 business ideas that would be perfect for students all over the country I hope that you will go out and decide to start your own business whether it be from this list or something you come up with yourself.
