Kids love to be creative and DO STUFF but I think it’s also important that they receive a financial education as part of a rounded general education. Encouraging them to have their own ‘business’ is a great way to combine this.
Great post for forward thinking parents
It is important to encourage your kids to do business. This way, they will know how to buy and sell at an early age and they will get used to rejection while they are young. It is an important skill to learn.
I totally agree!
I’d like to start a small business club at our Junior High. Any thoughts/advice on starting it up, or how to structure the meetings?

ur 100% right they want to have the felling of being a grown up.👍🏻
This is a wonderful tips, i will apply them on my children. Thanks.
Kids should read Robert Kiyosaki ” Rich Dad Poor Dad” and play the game cash flow … where the objective is get out of the rat race implementing real life business opportunities in the game to achieve the goal of having more cashflow then outflow or expense’s each month…
It’s not stupid.
Super rude, and it is awesome!
actually, this is a great way for kids to have a start in saving money for when they are older, this isn’t stupid, it’s great! I am so proud all of the children who have decided to take part in saving money for the future!

Some of these say you need adult supervision but I am eleven with the brain of a 14 year old so do I need supervision?
Agreed, you have to admit, as a kid I am saying they are horrible choices!!!
some are ok but some you need to be much older to do!
I am a kid! 11 years old and I need a way to make money! do you have any top suggestions? I tried doing a blog -NO
I tried garage sale opperator- No and more! what one do you think I should do? I want to do the candle and soap maker but how do I sell them?
You could take pictures of the soaps and candles you make and send them to family and friends, then possibly you could ask them to post it on facebook or something (if they have facebook) I tried this and it worked great! I made lots of money and i had great reveiws. P.S sorry im really late on the comment
Also I’m a kid too
thanks for the great advice

Just go online and make a website at Wix or some place like that. You can sell it there. Otherwise you can sell it at a stand if you live by a place that allows that.
