entrepreneurs under the age of 30.
Being Young and In Business Is Great
Being young and successful will always be an interest to people.
Nothing beats the joy of being young and enjoying the fruit of your labour.
Energy to Work – “The biggest
challenge for a blogger is finding the energy to keep going – luckily, young people have plenty of that.”
Money – The best thing about being young and running a business,
everything you earn you can put back
into your business. Some of the youngest online entrepreneurs still live at home and pay little or no rent, and also do not have large expences for food, cars etc…
Time – Your young, you got no
responsibilities, no 9-5 job, no kids to look after, get out there and become rich!
Opportunities – A lot of large
companies today want to know what teenagers want. You are a teenager and you know what you want – get out there and make a name for yourself, maybe even end up consulting for these larger
Support – There is a lot of support
out there for young entrepreneurs, such as; Young Enterprise, Young Presidents’ Organization and The Prince’s Trust in the UK Financial Freedom – While all your
friends are earning $5 an hour at their local super market, you’re earning $50 an hour while you sleep.
You have the financial freedom to do what you want, when you want Parents – If it all goes wrong, you’re still young and can fall back onto your parents till you get yourself up and running again. (Maybe?)
Internet – We are the internet
generation, when our parents were young they didn’t have the opportunities we had. Starting a business online is 10x easier and
more profitable then starting a business offline.
Fun – We often run our business’s at such a young age because we find it fun, we are working for ourselves, no responsibilities or boss.
