It can be expensive being a college student. Trust me, I was in school for longer than I should have been. However I found a great alternative for generating money that sure beats the heck out of flipping burgers. Is it possible for college and even high school students to start an internet business? Absolutely, an in many ways they have great advantages. Most college students already possess the skills needed to make money online. Teenagers and college students spend so much of their time online, so what should stop them from generating income at the same time?
I personally did precisely that. My junior year of school was only getting started, and I was bartending late nights just to pay my way. Actually I was barely making it. With graduation still years off, I got a little overwhelmed. “Is this it, am I doomed to struggle until I graduate?” luckily for me I had spotted that many people were making money with online home-based business prospects. It looked like my only way out, so I gave it a shot.
So what are the advantages of college kids and high school students who need to start their own web business? Well based primarily on what I have actually experienced, as well as the amazing experiences of others I know, the benefits are fabulous.
1-College scholars do not need to Wait Tables to Pay for School!!
Any college student knows that it can be pretty tight financially. It is pricey to follow an education, and more to maintain a social life too. It can be pretty busy balancing a full time class schedule AND a full time job. It is even more of a bummer when the roles college kids are sometimes able to get pay “pennies.” After school costs, transportation, living costs, and food ( mac & cheese anyone? ), there’s hardly anything left to enjoy. On top of that, many scholars are made to spend rather less time studying and more time working. This takes a heavy toll on the whole tutorial process. Is this inescapable? I don’t believe so…..in fact, I know it’s not!! Starting an internet business can give college students a better path to take. They can earn extra cash, and at the same time have extra time for college and a social life.
2-High Schoolers Can make preparations for College Before Hand
accept it or not, I know 15 year old high school students that have started terribly successful web businesses. Actually they make several thousand greenbacks a month, and they don’t seem to be even 18!! Young people are extraordinarily computer-savvy. They understand how to network, set up pages, and a lot of other abilities that can be very useful for an online business. Why not start one? It’s a productive way to spend their time, and they’ll learn a lot that will help out later along in life. And by building up a business that will work for them even if they aren’t. They are going to be able to head off to university with a steady income. They won’t ever have to flip-burgers or wait tables. They can target their studies, and not lose any sleep over their finances.
3- Developing talents for the “Real World”
Many scholars have huge goals that do not revolve around money. So while they may not wish to retire after school ( even though they almost certainly could ), they’ll actually learn many talents that will help land them a great job, and actually increase the value of the company they are working for. Education plays a very important part in getting a great job, but so does experience. What type of experience can young people develop by starting a web business?
Well firstly they are going to learn a good deal about online promoting. Online promoting is something that just about every business is chasing, and running a successful web business will add tremendous credibility to a resume. Networking is another critical skill which has applications in just about every career. Working on the web can help teens and college kids truly develop some professional networking talents. Writing also performs a part in an internet business, whether it be articles, web pages, or ad copy.
