Computer Repair

Many adults are still not as tech savvy as most kids and teenagers and when issues arise, they don't have a clue what to do to fix them.

Even downloading software can be an issue for most people but for teens that love to fix computer issues such as getting rid of a virus or upgrading a computer, this can be a profitable, low cost business to start.

Lawn Care

As a society, we are so busy that mowing the lawn can be one too many things to have to do. Many people don't want a service with all the problems that can come with it but would rather hire a motivated teen to handle the maintenance of their lawn and plants.

A landscaping business can grow out of this over time and can be started on weekends and during summers and is one of the popular money making ideas for those teen who enjoy being outdoors. There are courses that can be taken to expand skill sets and make the business more profitable. Take a look at the guide How to Start a Lawn care Business to get started.


Selling, either on-line or off is great for teens and with e-bay and Amazon that offer great opportunities to sell a variety of goods, it makes going into business so easy. Some teens take their crafts to craft shows and flea markets on weekends and sell to their friends at school.

All types of products can be bought and sold so getting into business is as easy as choosing a niche.


Fashion is very important to teens, both girls and guys, and so it just makes sense for those who live fashion to start creating their own line. The great thing is that you can start small, with something like scarves, T-shirts or accessories and grow the line to include more products.

We found a couple of great resources that can help you get started. We love the book How to start a T Shirt company - A guide to getting started in the world of fashion design because it explains everything you need to know to start and run a successful T-shirt business.

If you look around, you will see T-shirts have become very popular and if you are creative, this could be the perfect business! Just think about it, your customer base are all your friends!

We also really like the Fashion Business Formula Course. It teaches you how to become a fashion designer and create your own clothing line, working at home. It's great for teens!

  • No Fashion Experience required
  • You Can Work at Home Creating Your Clothing Line
  • Hardly Any Money Needed To Get Started
  • Weekly Bite Size Online Lessons
  • Get Online And Offline Customers
