Times are tough and teens need cash. Whether it be for gas, that new cd to download, or to pay for college. That's where Start It Up: The Complete Teen Business Guide to Turning Your Passions into Pay can be of assistance.
Just reading the foreword by Chris Gorog, founder and CEO of HeadlineShirts.com will inspire any budding entrepeneur to start the business they dream of and readers will learn everything from figuring out what kind of company they want to run to picking out a name to filing all of their paperwork.
What I love about this book is that it inspires teens to think big! If they have dreams of designing their own clothing line or baking world-famous chocolate chip cookies, this book can set them on the right track to fulfilling those dreams. And let's admit it--there's a lot to think about when it comes to running a business, such as whether or not you need a partner, how to write a business plan, and how to come up with a projected monthly budget.
Quizzes are scattered throughout the book that will help teens find their niche, find out what type of boss they'll be and more, and teens will especially love to hear from teen business owners themselves about how they started their own businesses.
Who knows, perhaps this book will be just what your own entrepreneur needs to come up with the next "Facebook."
