Even though teens may be young and have restrictions as to where they may work; there are many home based business ideas teens can start from the leisure of their own room. Coupling opportunities online and offline, this article will give you more than ten ideas for a home based business aimed at teenagers.
Business idea #1: Writing
Writing can be a fundamental way to make money online and offline. With a little bit of imagination and direction as to publish works (blogs, websites, journals, papers), a teen that has the knowledge of writing can earn a hefty profit with a few pages of text.
Business idea #2: Personal thank you letters
Businesses around the world want to increase their customer relations; one way is to send out personalized thank you letters. Because a business is too busy to write thank you letters themselves, teens can make money by offering their services – receive a list of recipients, write the letter and hand them back in.
Business idea #3: Dog walking service
Many families have dogs as part of their lives but unfortunately not all families have time to take care of their dogs due to a heavy workload. A teenager could create their own home business by setting up a service where they walk dogs for neighbors and charge a weekly or monthly fee.
Business idea #4: House cleaning service
Along the same lines as previously noted; business people are always busy and don’t have the time to do many of the smaller chores around the house. Teens that don’t mind cleaning could offer up their services to do any number of around-the-house chores related to cleaning in exchange for some money.
Business idea #5: Babysitting
Forever appearing in teen job related lists; babysitting is one of the simplest jobs for those that want to earn some money without having to start work for actual businesses. If a couple wants a night out on town they’re going to look for a babysitter; teens that take charge and offer their time can set up a very respectable business in babysitting.
Business idea #6: Tutoring
Children will be in school from their early age all the way through parts of their adulthood. There’s always a demand for tutoring as some people may know more in a subject while the other needs a little help. Teens that know how to deal with tutoring others and have the knowledge to share could charge by the hour.
Business idea #7: Delivery service
A delivery service is rather simple: pick up an item and drop it off at the next location. Teenagers that have the energy to travel and move items can earn some good money through the up-front payments and tips after the items have been delivered.
Business idea #8: Painting
Art has a way of capturing those that view it; teenagers with art skills or have the drive to do small painting jobs (house, mailbox, furniture) can find themselves making regular money just by applying paint to whatever needs a touch up.
Business idea #9: Yard sales
Successful yard sales can bring in a lot of money to the people holding it; teenagers could either sell their own items or even ask person if they could help sell items in exchange for a commission.
Business idea #10: Tech-related services
Finally, tech-related services are always in demand as the number of gadgets and computers continue to climb. Those teenagers that have a knack for technology could offer their services in repairing, upgrading, removing malware and many other tasks for a great chunk of money.
