5 Business Ideas for Teenagers & Kids

Brendan Cox, Author of "Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur"

The job market is getting more and more saturated everyday. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many people lost their jobs, and the competition for teens and kids is becoming even tougher as they enter the job market. The solution to this rather serious problem lies in entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship provides a great opportunity for teenagers and kids to make money through something they are passionate about. By opting for this, teenagers create jobs instead of searching for one. Here are some ideas for teenagers to make some extra money.

1. Babysitting

Babysitting is an all-season business. Couples always need a babysitter when they have plans to go to some event. Suppose you start a service that offers babysitters on short notice whenever they want. The best way to do that is by creating an online platform where parents and babysitters registered themselves and offered/bought the services. 

2. Computer Tutor

Technology is the forte of the young generation, and you may not understand how much it means to older people. You can start computer and tech tutoring services in which you can offer training basics and advance computer skills. Make a plan to do it as a proper business by taking your peers on board. 

3. Courier Service

Teenagers and kids like to ride the bike and do it for the whole day. By starting a courier service within your vicinity can prove to be a real game-changer. People always need a courier service, which is readily available. A store owner may need your services to deliver coupons to local customers, or a pizzeria may acquire your services to delivery food. Every business needs this service, and you can earn their trust with time by delivering on time every time. You can learn from this venture and start a proper company with time.

4. Tutoring Primary School Students

Helping kids with their homework can also help you earn some good money with minimal effort (if you are naturally smart). Parents often hire professional teachers for tutoring their kids, but not all parents afford it. Tap into this market, and you might be able to make a lot of money with the help of your knowledge.

5. Event Organizing

It is perhaps the most challenging yet more rewarding idea. Start organizing small events with the help of your friends. Learn to innovate and keep upgrading your business. If you are able to expand your services, this could turn into a full time gig. Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? Check out my new book: Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur.
