Time-starved parents need help and that’s why businesses that cater to children are really booming. Take your pick:
1.DAY CARE: You might have to be licensed to set up a day care center in your home so do some checking first. You’ll probably want to be heavily insured and bonded to protect yourself from liability. Purchase toys, art tables, come up with activities, love to be with kids and you will be on to quite a moneymaker.
2.LESSONS: Teach kids when parents don’t have the time. You can have a kite day at the beach and sell kites who all arrive empty-handed. Same with scooters, bikes and skis.
3.SUPPLY CAPS & SHIRTS:You can be the supplier for local teams, community clubs, civic groups, school events and more. You’ll buy the shirts, caps, whatever at rock-bottom wholesale prices, have them embroider or monogrammed with the group’s name and sell them at a nice profit. You’ll need a re-sell license to buy the goods wholesale and then you can contact wholesalers in your area or use mail order catalogs to order the goods and set up shop.
4.KEEPSAKE DISPLAYS: Start a business as sentimental as shoe bronzing, but this is modern. Take a treasured item, such as the child’s first sneaker, baseball, baton, etc. and create a great display for the item.
5.SCRAPBOOKS: Take family photographs and postcards, letters, ribbons, bows and other memories of special events, and moments in the lives of your clients’ families. You’ll present the scrapbooks to the families and collect your fee for putting together these wonderful memories.
