If your teens are anything like mine, they have an entrepreneurial spirit. They love to create and sell their items and are constantly looking for new business ideas for teens.

But even when your child is incredibly talented, there is still so much more that goes into creating a business than just creating a good product.

It’s easy for teens to get overwhelmed or miss an important step when creating a business.

So when I found a guide to starting a lucrative business, aimed directly at teens, I knew I had to grab it.

I received Teen’s Guide to Making and Selling Upcycled Arts and Crafts for free and was compensated for my time.
All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
Exploring business ideas for teens has never been easier!

Exploring Business Ideas for Teens

Our family is full of entrepreneurs.

My husband runs his family’s construction business and I bring in a full time income through my blog.

I constantly tell my daughters that if they intend to be stay-at-home moms, they need to find a way to bring in money now. In today’s economy, it’ll be darn-near impossible for them to stay home with their kids and not contribute to their family’s finances.

And while that can seem like a rough way to view their future, it’s the honest truth. Long gone are the days where families can simply live on one income.

In fact, I don’t know many stay-at-home moms today who aren’t bringing in a small income.

Over the years, I’ve had many, many side-hustles:

  • sewing custom clothing
  • flipping items on eBay
  • secret shopper
  • polishing wheels
  • flea market booths
  • photography
  • blogging
  • and many more!

Once my girls were old enough to start thinking about their futures, I realized they both intend to be stay-at-home moms.

That’s when we started seriously looking for options to help them generate an income. While there are plenty of occupations that will allow them to set their own hours, they would still be working for someone else and be required to work when their boss tells them.

Working for yourself brings a sense of freedom that moms need, so we opted to start looking in that direction.

Teen’s Guide to Making and Selling Upcycled Arts and Crafts: How to Start a Creative Reduce-Reuse-Recycle Side Gig

Teen’s Guide to Making and Selling Upcycled Arts and Crafts is a treasure-trove of information that will lead your teen through the process of making their first chunk of money.

From figuring out what they want to sell to knowing how to price their items, there is a HUGE learning curve when your teen starts exploring business ideas.

James Dillahay’s new book, Teen’s Guide to Making and Selling Upcycled Arts and Crafts: How to Start a Creative Reduce-Reuse-Recycle Side Gig, takes the guesswork out of starting a business.

The book is one of the rare books that ONLY includes the information you need. And the knowledge can be applied to other side-hustles, not just upcycled items.

This was vital when Emersyn started reading it.

She didn’t want to read a lot of fluff or confusing business jargon. She thrives on knowing exactly what to do, having her options laid out for her in black and white.

And that’s exactly what Teen’s Guide to Making and Selling Upcycled Arts and Crafts does while also inspiring her to upcycle trash!
