Why you MUST Start an online business now BEFORE going to college

Why start an online business now…?

Do not run away. Starting an online business is not as scary as you think.

I promise.

You can dedicate some of your free time to earning some money online and be successful. Of course, you need to have an idea (what kind of online business you want to open) and work to achieve your goal.

So why do it? Why work online after school instead of taking a nap? O instead of going out with your friends every day?

In this article, I’m going to tell you why it’s crucial for you to start an online business now, BEFORE you go to college, and how to do it.

Read this article all the way through and you’ll know EVERYTHING you need to know.

Let’s get started.

You MUST Start an online business now…stop waiting!

Start an online store with no money

Opening an online business before going to college, a good idea?

Why do I say start an online business now, without waiting another month?

Because this kind of thing takes time and work to pay off.

You will not earn as much as your parents overnight, you will need at least a few months. More specifically, the months between now and September.

There are many advantages to starting an online business now:

  • People are online more than ever
  • A good idea can make MILLIONS in these days
  • College costs

If you start an online business now, you will not be burdening your parents financially.

College costs money, and not just the tuition.

You also have to consider:

  • Rent
  • Flights (if you are moving away from home)
  • Food costs
  • School supplies
  • Utility bills
  • Excursions

And I’m sure there’s a lot more I’m forgetting to mention.

In short, not to scare you, but unless your parents are very well off financially and willing to pay for you, you will need to earn money.

Typically, you start with some savings you have already put aside and use them until you find a job.

But this method has major disadvantages:

  • You don’t know when you’ll find a job.

There is a lot of competition, especially in university towns. Everyone starts looking for work in September, a lot of young people with no experience but willing to learn, just like you.

So I can assure you that it will not be a walk in the park.

It will take months and, if you’re not lucky, you’ll have to go through a lot of interviews before you get a yes. And in the meantime, you need money to live on.

Another reason is equally important.

  • Not everyone is cut out to be a waitress

The jobs that most often employ inexperienced young students are those that serve customers. There are plenty of vacancies for waitresses, barmaids and sales assistants.

Jobs that anyone can learn, but not everyone is cut out for.

I’ll be honest, I’ve done two of these jobs and if they offered me to go back tomorrow, I’d beg them not to.

Again, I don’t want to scare you, remember that everyone’s experience is different. But at least for me it was a bad time and these are not jobs I would ever do in the long run.

These kinds of service jobs are for people who are outgoing, easygoing and like to strike up conversations with strangers. Especially when it comes to being a barmaid.

So if you don’t quite fit into this category, starting an online business now will literally save your life.

You need a job now to cover the costs

As I mentioned earlier, there are many costs associated with going to college, and not just tuition fees.

(Although that is the biggest cost in the case of American institutions).

If you have to move to study, you will have a lot of expenses and it will be difficult to find a job right away.

And unless you work while you study, you will only have the summer to find a job and put money aside. This is why starting an online business now is the right choice.

It will allow you to start earning money quickly and independently. You can use the time when you are still living at home to fill up your bank account as much as possible. And get used to being independent.

If you start an online business now, you can choose a job you like

If retail jobs are not for you, you will need a more suitable job if you are going to be doing this for years.
Initially, without any experience, you will only be able to find jobs as a waitress or sales assistant, as we have already mentioned.

Super respectable and useful jobs, but if they are not for you, they can ruin your days.

Do you know the number 1 reason why people start an online business?
To quit their 9 to 5 job.

And if you start your own business before you leave school, you will have the privilege of doing what you enjoy most right from the start. A privilege that should not be underestimated.

You’ll have more money to spend on travelling and holidays

At this age, between the end of adolescence and the beginning of adulthood, you want to have more of these experiences. And rightly so, our twenties are supposed to be our best years.

You’re independent, but you don’t have too many responsibilities, the perfect climate for travelling, experiencing new things and trying out all the hobbies out there.

But you know what you need to do all this? Money.

At the risk of being repetitive, you will need a lot of resources to survive well in this new climate.

And a side hustle that allows you to increase your savings will do you more than good. It will allow you to live life to the full without having to make sacrifices.

If you start an online business now, you will have more money for emergencies

As much as travelling the world is a wonderful motivation to become a successful entrepreneur, there is another much more important incentive.

If you start an online business now, you will start to receive income every month and you will be able to put some money away for emergencies.

Do not forget this part of your student life.

Serious things often happen suddenly and we all need to be prepared.

Even if you have to give up that Saturday night pizza, always put some money aside and save future you.

So what do you think? Do you understand why it is so urgent that you start an online business now, certainly BEFORE you start college?

I hope so, because I want to show you the safest and most reliable side hustle there is! Blogging!

Did you know that millions of people earn a monthly salary JUST from their blog?

Whether it’s a lifestyle blog, a reading blog or a make money blog, whatever the topic, you can be successful and make money. And the best part? You decide what to write about and what to tell your readers!

It is a job that has given me endless satisfaction, but most importantly, it has given me a purpose. Crucial for any high school or college student.
