Starting a Business

Starting his own business for the summer is a great way for your teen to earn some extra cash and learn the ropes of running a business at the same time. If the business begins to flourish, your teen's services could continue long past the summer months. Some ideas include babysitting, cleaning, messenger/errand service, car washing/detailing, house painting, and pet care. Entrepreneurship is a great opportunity for your teen to enhance her professionalism, time-management and organization skills, reliability, and confidence -- while providing a helpful service to the community.
