After looking for work for months and coming up dry, 18-year-old Eric Cieslewicz realized he already had the potential to work, using his passion for percussion. Eric decided to create his own micro business by offering his skills as a drummer for hire to young, aspiring drummers. He designed his own website, printed business cards, and began to talk about his services. After a short time, Eric now has 8 regular students and earns more than $400 a month from drumming lessons alone. Coupled with performing, Eric earns a tidy profit from his micro business. Eric took something he loves and used that to create a business.
