In this episode#2 of the Dollars and Sense Show host Carol Topp discusses
Finding and testing a great idea for your micro business
Based on her book Starting a Micro Business, Carol explains several ways to come up with a great micro business idea and then test that idea so it will be a success!
How to come up with a great micro business idea:
- See a need
- Consider your interests
- Consider your skills and talents
- Copy someone else: Go to MicroBusinessForTeens.com Idea page or the Micro Business Ideas Pinterest page!
How to test your idea: Do a mini market survey. Ask at least 5 potential customers if they need what you are offering, would they buy from you and what price they are willing to be paid.
You can conduct your survey in person, by email, on Facebook or with the help of mom and dad!
On the show Carol mentioned a YouTube video based on her book, Starting a Micro Business.
and her Pinterest page with lots of micro business ideas.
