Today’s tip: Keep it manageable
Micro businesses are a perfect business for teenagers to start because they are small and manageable. A teenager should be able to run a micro business and keep up with school work and extra curricular activities.
Running a micro should only take a few hours a week, up to 20 at most. The time commitment should be similar to working a part time job, but the rewards are much greater!
Emily teaches piano lessons to seven students for 30 minutes each week. The three-and-a-half hours a week is not a heavy load, but she is a busy high school student. She charges $8 for a half hour lesson, a very reasonable price, but twice the hourly rate that she would make working fast food. She can schedule the students around her schedule and since they come to her home, she doesn’t have to spend time driving or borrow the family car.
- Do you have a busy life with your parents expecting you to get good grades?
- Do you still want to earn some money without being given a funny uniform and being told when to show up for work?
A micro business would be great for you!
