BUSINESS IDEAS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Ideas for starting your own business tomorrow
You want to start your own business. The next step is a good business idea. A business idea with which you can make money right away with not too much investment. Maybe after your MBO degree you already have quite a few skills that you can sell. Or maybe you want to discover entrepreneurship during your gap year after your HAVO final exams. Or you quit your studies because you already know you want to start for yourself. All good reasons to become an entrepreneur.
FIRST 3 TIPS
A good idea should of course suit you a bit. Some people think the environment is super important. The other goes all out on vegan. And yet another is crazy about sailboats or games. So mainly get to work on what you think is cool.
Most young people do not have much money to invest. So start small with something you can make bigger in a while.
You don’t have to think of something that doesn’t exist yet. In fact, almost everything already exists. The point is that you make something that exists just that little bit smarter or easier.
Be sure to read our blogs: Am I an entrepreneur? and What education do you choose to become an entrepreneur?
BUSINESS IDEA 1 – START AN OUTDOOR BOOTCAMP
Are you sporty, then you can earn a nice penny with that. A boot camp is like a gym, but outdoors. Buy some weights, hoops and other gym equipment to trim outside. In the woods, in a park, on the beach, it’s all possible. Then come up with a program of an hour and invite other sports enthusiasts to join you. Of course you can easily use Facebook and Instagram for this. If you do this twice a week with a group of 8 people who all pay 10 euros, you will soon earn more than the scholarship.

BUSINESS IDEA 2 – BECOME AN ONLINE MARKETER
Almost every organization wants to be visible on social media. Your hairdresser, (old) school, sports club, car garage and so on. You’d be surprised how many young guys, like you, are hired to help with that. Most small businesses don’t have the knowledge or time to fill and update Twitter, Insta, Facebook and YouTube professionally. So if you are handy on the socials, establish yourself as an online marketer.
Come up with a good company name: Petrahelptonline.nl or something similar.

Promote your company on Insta
Put € 100 euro in Google Ads for your region
And another € 100 in small calls in the local paper
Offer a monthly subscription for maintenance and analysis of the socials for € 150
Voilà, you are up and running
BUSINESS IDEA 3 – OPEN A WEBSHOP
In a webshop you can sell really anything. Your own paintings or jewelry or gadgets that you buy for next to nothing on AliExpress. Of course you need to get visitors to your webshop.
This is not easy and often takes a long time. But the good news is that nowadays you can also sell the items from your webshop very easily, for example through Bol.com. You will pay a small margin on your sales, but of course you will be much more findable. On this page you can read how to become a Bol.com partner in a few steps.

BUSINESS IDEA 4 – LET YOUR NEIGHBORS WALK THEIR DOGS
Are you good with big and small dogs and love the outdoors? Start your own business with a dog walking service for working people in your neighborhood or village. Big advantage of this is that you receive money every week. Suppose you charge € 4 per dog per outing. And you let four dogs out three times a week, then you quickly earn € 50 per week.
Tip: you can also make it a little more exclusive by making it a grooming round. In that case you don’t just let the dogs out, but you let them run with you for an hour. Good for you, good for the dog and a happy customer, because they don’t run themselves. Of course, you can double the rate with this.
BUSINESS IDEA 5 – START VLOGGING OR BLOGGING
Do not count yourself rich immediately, but if you have a nice topic and a good chat, you can make money on Youtube. With 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of viewing time, you will receive between 1 and 4 euros from Youtube. The more followers, the more interesting advertisers find you. They then pay some money if you say something nice about them. If your vlogs or blogs about working during a gap year are viewed very well, it could happen that Werkstudent.nl sponsors you. Look how Monica Geuze earns her money on YouTube.
