Things to think about

Starting your own business does not have to take a whole lot of time and money. But before you start, there are some things that may require you to do a little thinking, ask a few questions and perhaps do a little research. After thinking about these things, you may decide to start a less complicated business — or at least you’ll know how much work your business idea will require.

Of course, the younger entrepreneurs will want to get help from an adult or older sibling with these questions. Let’s get started!
