Confused and overwhelmed about how to start a business or how to help your teen or young adult start a business?
If you’ve ever wanted to start a micro business, figure out how to get some extra income, or start a full-time viable business that will give you financial freedom, then you’re going to want to read every word of this page.
Maybe you thought it was impossible to use your passion or interests in life as a way to make a living.
Maybe you have teens or young adult children who are just starting out in life and there seems to be nothing for them to do but futile jobs that don’t bring them much income.
Or perhaps they don’t know what they want to be when they grow up or maybe even your child is not able to get a regular job due to a challenge like Autism or perhaps a medical condition…
Let me start with a story…
It was several years ago when my son, who was a teen at the time, came to me and said, “Mom, I don’t have an oar.”
He went on to explain that the rest of our family had turned a passion into a viable income. Everyone except him.
It got me to thinking. Though I had helped my husband start his business as well as other family members, I had not helped my son. What could I do?
Especially since he has Aspergers and just “getting a job” was not going to happen?
Nor did I want him to be on government benefits when I KNEW that he was talented and capable of earning an income!
So what did I do? It became clear to us that his talents and passions were art and computers. I saw an aptitude for logo design and book design as well as 3D modeling. I observed what he did in his free time and that led to eventually making the connection:
He could be my graphic design apprentice and eventually a 3D modeler for my husband, who is an architect!
So that’s exactly what I did! I taught Sam graphic design using my entrepreneurial course. I helped him design several projects including logos and other graphics.
Then came an opportunity—designing a cover and interior of a book. We landed our first joint book publishing project and he earned his first paycheck!
Sam knew there was a better way to “get that oar” than a job that he wasn’t interested or even capable of holding. He knew there was a better way because he had seen me all his life help others start their own businesses, including his own dad. He knew there was a better way to make money than working at Taco Bell like I had done when a teen. Seems like other people could earn money from their passions just fine – so what was his problem?
That’s when he asked me to help him and we made this marvelous discovery that instantly made it much easier for him to find a way to earn an income and feel better about himself.
Suddenly, instead of feeling hopeless and like he’d never realize his dreams (which of course includes buying his own car), he was embracing the idea of becoming an entrepreneur and learning the graphic design trade as my apprentice. And best of all, it was happening almost like magic. Yes, it felt THAT easy! Because it was a natural fit!
What was this discovery?
Simple – Following your passions and turning them into a micro business and eventually a career path is not as complicated as one would think!
Teens CAN make it BIG as entrepreneurs! I love that this teen named Duarte passed up his chance to go to Colorado State because he knew college wasn’t for him. Don’t get me wrong. Colorado State is my alma matter and I LOVED college.
But it’s not for everyone. I know that my son will most likely not go to college, and I’m fine with that.
Even those who graduate from college end up many times in mundane jobs that have NOTHING to do with their degree.
I myself became a secretary after graduating in 1990 which eventually led me to becoming a graphic designer. If I had had the knowledge I have now back then and the amazing technology of the World Wide Web back then, I could have started a business. That’s why I created these resources to help both teens and adults find their way in life to become entrepreneurs and to achieve that much easier and quicker than I did!
That’s why I wrote my entrepreneurial curriculum in the first place. It started out as “Brand Identity Quest” and then became the book set I have today called Your Guidebook to Growing a Family Economy.
Since then, I’ve helped a number of individuals and families start their own businesses and build their brands. That’s why I knew that one of the hardest obstacles to starting a business is knowing HOW To start and the exact STEPS to take. That’s why I created resources to help in this endeavor.
I also have observed so many parents wondering how to help their teens and young adults make an income or get a job. Or parents themselves needing a job to make an extra income.
But sadly, this question is often NOT connected with their talents, passions, interests, gifts, skills…
It’s often just a knee-jerk reaction to the problem of needing money and there’s no forethought into it.
Like asking “What does my teen like to do? What do I like to do? How can that be turned into a micro business to make money quickly and then how can I build that into a business that will sustain me for my lifetime?”
Seem impossible? As I noted above, it certainly is NOT! There is a way forward and I’ve seen it happen over and over again both in my family and in my clients.
