First released in 1992, this book has helped scores of young entrepreneurs start their own businesses. This new edition contains over fifty ideas for making money by operating your own one person business.

Each entry describes the idea and then lists supplies needed, time involved, what to charge, how to advertise and then a set of Hints that will make it easier to make the business a success.

Admittedly, some of the ideas here are questionable and probably won't work in many areas. I think you can skip over jobs like phone information-line organizer, rock painter, silver polisher, collectibles show organizer and disc jockey.

But there are other suggestions that might be quite useful and create a nice flow of revenue. Jobs like dog walker, car washer, cage and litter box cleaner, garbage can mover (for older folks), party helper, and seedling grower are all potential money makers.

If you do check out this book, be sure to read the section entitled Cautions that outlines safety, local ordinances, financial risk, taxes and other things of which you should be aware.
