If you’re not ready to jump into running your own business full time, a summer business could be ideal. These types of ventures are seasonal and designed around the warmer times of the year, when tourists travel and everyone wants to enjoy the sunshine.
For people who know they’re not going to be as busy in the summer, like students or teachers, summer businesses are a great opportunity for a low-risk introduction to the world of entrepreneurship. Starting a summer business will teach you about the basics of administration, business finance, marketing, profit margins and more. They are a great way to stay busy, gain new skills, make some extra income and who knows — maybe expand into something bigger.
