What are some simple business ideas for teenagers?
I'm looking for some solid, worthwhile ideas that may help me rise money so that I, along with some friends may create a community garden in order to promote social interaction, healthy habits, etc. Please ANY ideas will do even if you have some "modified" version of selling lemonade! Thanks guys.2 years ago - 3 answers
Why not knock out two birds with one stone. Man up and take out a 1K dollar loan...have your parents all co-sign it. Flatten out the space you want to use for your garden and prepare it. THEN...break it down into plots and "rent" the plots out. That way people come and grow their OWN vegetables promoting a communal feel/ community awareness and sustainable attitude. You also have revenue to pay back your loans and 1K certainly is not breaking the bank (even if you fail). You gain so much by trying that (valuable learning experience/ character/ something to put on a college resume/ possible BOOMING business completely unique to your area.)
GOOD LUCK and make it happen. If there is one thing I've learned is nothing worthwhile comes easy. Go for it while you are young. Separate yourself from your peers and you will have a distinct advantage over others.
Make your own jewlery , bracelets and earings . Bake cup cakes and cookies . Go to a local target , supermarket , etc etc and buy packages of like juice , candys , etc etc and sell them during lunch time at your school , EX : a caprisun can be $ 0 . 50 - $ 0.75 , Candys can be $0.50 ( or more depending how much & what type of candy , cookies can be $1 ( depending how much they bring ) .

Start an errand and odd job service for the elderly people in your neighborhood. Print up flyers on your PC and hand them out to your neighbors. If business picks up, hire some of your friends to help you.by Henry - 2 years ago
