Starting Your Own Business
By Cindy Grigg

1     Caption: Elise and Evan Macmillan, when they were teen owners of The Chocolate Farm.
2     So you want to earn some money? Starting your own business is something many kids do. They become entrepreneurs. An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and runs his or her own business. Make a list of things you like to do. What things do you do well? Of those things, what things will people pay you money to do? Great business ideas are based on things people need and want.
