You have decided to earn some extra income. This will enable you to pay for your outings or books. You will also save more money for the future. You have already helped in shops and restaurants. But, this time, you want to have your own business. Where should you start? First, think of what you would like to do and what you are good at. Then draw up a list. Write down how each item in your list could be useful for someone else. For example, you like to surf the internet. You could do research for people who don't have the time to do it. Or you may be an expert in fixing bikes. You could transform your expertise into a product or a service. Test your idea on your friends or neighbours. They could need such a service. You should also prepare your sales pitch. Don't say your product is the best, but find out how it can help your customers. Ask them how much they would be ready to pay for it. Once you have decided on your product, who it can help and how, and its price, list your future costs and sales, and calculate if your idea is profitable.
