Now that you've got that back-to-school thing under control, try having some fun while making some money by starting a business with your best gal pal! It’s not as hard as it seems, and it’ll definitely keep you girlies from getting bored.
Start with an idea
Find something you two are really passionate about and see
if there is any way to create a business from it. If you’re lacking in the idea
category, here’s a few to get you started: jewelry, crafts, candle making or
Pitch it to your
Write up a business plan and show it to your parents. You’re
most likely going to need some help from them in some aspect of your business,
so make sure they are willing to help first.
Gather up some goods
No matter what business you start, it’s going to require
some materials. You might need cooking supplies, or paint, so make sure you’re
willing to spend a little bit of money on these things. Splitting the price
between the two of you won’t be so bad, and if all goes well, you’ll make this
money back, plus more!
Practice what you’re
You want to make sure you become an expert at your business,
so get lots of practice in. If you’re making jewelry, try all different styles.
If you’re making baked goods, try all different recipes. Find the best options
before you put them on the market.
Tell your parents to tell their friends, make some flyers,
and post about your business on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Without
showing people what ya got, you won’t start selling anything. Make sure as many
people know as possible.
You can’t run a business, even a small summer one, without staying extremely organized. You’ll have to manage money, clients, and creating your good. Split the work up between you and your babe to make sure everything is getting done.
