How can my teen think of a business idea?

There are limitless business ideas for teens in the world. It’s important to have your teen think of an idea that energizes them to put forth their full energy every day. Do not discourage your teen from any idea that you might see as being impossible. Instead, let them naturally figure this out during the building process and learn how to pivot to something more attainable. It’s more powerful for a teen to learn entrepreneurship through experience than to be lectured by an adult.

Kid Entrepreneurship has developed the following steps for helping your teen think of a business idea. We focus on different areas for stimulating a teen’s creativity. These areas include passions, life experiences, everyday problems, and tragedies.

What are your teen’s favorite activities?

Whether is dancing, surfing, chess, or video games, let them name off all the different activities they enjoy. All activities should be accepted. Don’t jump ahead and turn down an activity because you believe that it will not be successful.
