One of the perks of homeschooling through high school is the ability of your teens to pursue entrepreneurial ventures. The flexibility of a homeschool schedule, the cultivation of independent thinking, and the ability to think outside the box are all traits that homeschool teens share. The next logical step for many homeschool teens is the pursuit of their own business.
My kids have earned incomes as teens doing things like pet sitting and lawn care. They have also worked doing various odd jobs and handyman services. My oldest, who is an aspiring filmmaker, has done some videography for weddings and local city events.
Being your own boss has many benefits, but where do you even begin?
