Would the Micro Business for Teens books be helpful for adults?

I was just wondering if this curriculum could be used as a starting point for an adult who is interested in starting a micro business? Also, could the tax information be used as well?

Dear Alicia,

Yes, the Micro Business for Teens books are frequently read by adults. One adult who has owned micro businesses in the past told me she learned something new.

The Money and Taxes book book will be helpful to adults as well. It covers creating important financial statements, cash flow, how to increase your profit, sales tax, hiring and paying workers.

The chapter on taxes applies to adults and teenagers, because the tax code is the same for teenagers and adults, so it should be helpful to you.
