Kids and Businesses: The Business Ideas You Can Run With Your Kids
Today, I’m going to write something unconventional, something special because it involves special people. I have a soft spot for kids because they are amazing. I want to show how you can use these amazing people for business purposes. How will I achieve that? Simple is all I can say because I’m going to show you business ideas you can run with your kids.
Now, let us be honest, the world is all about entrepreneurship. Nigeria is all about entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship is about innovations and creativity. You get a load of that from kids.
Therefore, there is no need excluding them from the game. They have shown over the years that they can be relied upon to bring the goods to the table.
If we could have kid business owners, then there is actually nothing that should stop you from embarking on kid-focused business ideas.
Let us just look at some of the business ideas you can start with your kids. My guess is that you will love them. It is indeed so cool working with kids.
The Business Ideas You Can Run With Your Kids
Coauthoring a book
Even among kids, there are people who are so talented and are so interested in putting down creative pieces. You could make that a point of business. How can you possibly do that?
Get your kids to write a good piece with you if he or she is into it. If your kid is not a creative person, this will not work. If he or she is, then it will work perfectly. Let the kid make their input and you make yours. Remember, that kid is your co-author.
The fact that you can read that piece with him means that one day, you could write one together. That day may be today.
This works better for older kids. To be precise, kids that are between 10-15 years can handle this. You can become a helping hand to kids who would want to involve themselves with tutoring.
I believe you already know that it is not every kid that can handle the pressure of teaching others but some others are just great at it. If there are parents who looking for tutors for their younger kids who live in your area, you could become available and use your kids. It may not seem appealing that people will hire kids to do help their kids but it does work fine since you are already in the picture.
On your own part, you will drive them to their teaching venue or you can supervise what they teach.
Babysitting and pet sitting
In advanced countries, this is one of the business ideas you can run with your kids. Even in Nigeria, in urban areas to be precise, you could get people who would want you to babysit for them and take care of their pests. Care.com and rover.com can help in getting you babysitting and pet sitting services.
Taking care of lawns
For the older kids too, you can utilize their services in running your lawn care service business. This is mostly done when they are out of school and could spend the time on something meaningful.
If you are into computer repairs, you could bring your kids along. Computer repair is one of the many business ideas you can run with your kids especially those ones that are good with computers. Again, if your child knows about computers and you don’t, you can still work together to achieve a business end. You can handle the publicity by getting the service out there so that people can come in and patronize while he does the actual job of fixing the computer. Sounds cool, right?
Artwork production and sales
When you have kids that are very creative and imaginative enough to put up good artwork, you can make a fortune with your kid. All you need to do is fine-tune the production and creativity inherent in the kid and encourage its production.
You can get listings in online marketplaces and there are so many of them around now. It is not just Etsy that provides that service.
Home cleaning service
Your kids could be part of your home cleaning service. You could encourage them to join you in the business or help them establish for them while you take care of arranging clients. The clients could just be neighbors in the town. They can take care of dusting, doing dishes and vacuuming. They can also do the toilets, bathrooms and floor mopping if they are older.
The truth is that these business ideas you can run with your kids are all essential to developing them. They could learn the true spirit of entrepreneurship in the process. Experiences gathered at the tender stage will help them grow into great entrepreneurs.
