Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Lily here and since it’s the summer I thought you might be interested in some cool ideas to make a few bucks. Sure you might be doing some babysitting or petsitting and lovin’ the cha-ching in the piggy bank, but perhaps you’re thinking bigger. Like mogul bigger. It’s true – you do not have to be a grownup to start a business. Lots of great business got their start in someone’s kitchen or garage. And what’s the best part about starting your own business – you can make sure you’re doing something you love – not something just to make money – like working at snack shack.
Here are some ideas you can use to turn your fave things into moolah.
Are you a crafter? Follow the lead of Marci of MarciG, a potter who sells her creations through Etsy, an online crafts marketplace. She launched her online pottery store when she didn’t get any of the summer jobs she applied for. She can customize her pieces according to customer request and sometimes makes over $500 a month!
Sweet Tooth – Kalissa of Kalissa’s Cakes always loved to bake and when she noticed that a lot of her friends were having quinceaneras – a fancy birthday party for Latina girls, she started to bake cakes just for those. She made good money and now is expanding her business to include cake decorating parties. Yumm-O!
Are you a Puppy lover – well then look at what Amanda, a total dog lover created. When her beloved dog Princess died of cancer she decided to create a healthier dog treat – so she whipped up vegetarian dog treats that are good for dogs and the environment and sells them online at ecodogtreats.com.
