Young entrepreneur first steps
I'm still in high school but want to start an online business. Where do I start?
Begin by writing a business plan, which will help you identify a product you can sell online, the ability to finding customers (marketing and sales), and the means to delivering the product to the customer.
Then focus on getting your first customer, which is the hardest one. Make sure your initial prices are compelling to make up for the lack of experience of your business. Make sure every customer is very satisfied. Word of mouth networking is and great references are vital to success.
Keep your business growth slow for a while. Don't miss the fun things that come with being young.
