Developing the Young Enterpreneur
 

Every young entrepreneur can learn about what it takes about managing or owning a small business. The often overlooked resource is located directly within their own homes. The family offers a supportive network and may also act as guidance to the struggling or curious youth. The benefit is further enhanced when one of the parents happens to be a successful entrepreneur themselves.


It is extremely crucial that the parents participate in the growth of the small business. Often children/young adults are too young to take on the full responsibility of owning a business all by themselves. The parent will act as a business advisor and a supporter or business advisor whenever their advice is needed.


Some of the following tips may be useful for developing a supportive guidance system to help your young entrepreneur.


Before anyone can get involved with creating a business they have to determine what their interests are. Their interests will often indicate what kind of business they should start and promote. When deciding which interest to turn into a business idea, they also need to consider the demand for the service or product. There's no point in going through all the difficult work to create a business only to discover there is no demand. This is a recipe for disaster. With the guidance of an adult, the youngster may be able to go door to door and determine the neighborhoods desires.

For Example: The child may find that a reliable and affordable landscaper is in great demand. They may want to start a landscaping business for the dry months, and a snow shoveling business during the winter. When surveying with your youth, you may find that most of the adults are busy and have a desire to delegate most household tasks off to someone else. The potential for getting your child's foot in the door will most likely be successful. If the population of your neighborhood seems to tip towards younger ages, take into consideration they tend to have no problems spending money on novelty items.

 
 


After you've compiled the results of the survey, it's time to take a magnifying glass to the results. As you go through the survey and determine the desire of your customer base, remove any business ideas that would gravitate towards advanced skills your child may not have at the moment. What we mean by this is to trash any idea that is overly technical and could be age in-appropriate (Painting, Auto Mechanic, etc.). This would also be a useful lesson in teaching how to start a business with a minimal equipment/investment list.


The next step should be geared towards creating a marketing plan that will help the youth to succeed. Every successful business has at least one business plan under their hats. Why should your youth be without? This plan helps motivate and also keeps the goals in mind. This is useful for avoiding any sticky situations later down the road. The plan may also serve as a reminder should the business owner become overwhelmed by the operations of the business.
 
When analyzing your market, ensure that you have a supportive customer base. You may want to start with family members, friends, and even some supportive adults. Once the young entrepreneur has been motivated by the initial success of their sales, they need to continue to spread the word about their business so they can gain additional customers. The first customers were not just there to offer their support, they also motivated the budding business owner to move forward with their sales! This lesson will sink in further once a little hard earned money pads their pockets. Don't be taken for surprise when the entrepreneur wants to move forward on the expansion and growth of their business.
 
I have found out that there are internet enterprises that support kids running their own businesses... they feel like we can learn a lot from them in their most purest form.
 
In the automotive industry a group of persons called carpreview, have their kids help them chose which car should be reviewed next. They do this in order to exploit the potential of the kids to make choices based on an innocent approach to likeness and intuition.
 
Regardless of your skill levels, you may be able to increase their knowledge by checking out books at the library. A simple request on business ownership should provide enough books to keep them busy for months!
