If you don't get your pre-teens too excited, don't worry - just be patient for a couple of years. When they become 14 and older, you'll have a whole new set of opportunities...
By now, their computer and Internet skills should be fairly well developed - most kids learn with their friends and at school these days. And, their desire to make money has intensified as well! Use this desire to get them involved with Internet business.
Here are two ways:
As with pre-teens, you can hire them to do some of your administrative chores so you can concentrate on single most important part of your business: *marketing*! You can get your teens doing data input, getting stats from ad-trackers, doing research, and even search engine submission and other tedious marketing tasks. Believe me; they'll be well worth money. And even more important for teens, they're going to be developing those ever important life skills!
The *best* way to get teens involved with Internet home business is to do what Steve Mariotti does - get them set up in their own business! My son Ted has a thriving EBay business. He buys damaged DVD players very inexpensively on EBay, fixes them, and sells them for a sizeable profit, again on EBay. EBay is a *fantastic* place for kids to learn business and make money. Here's a link to a useful free e-book on how to do business on EBay for you and your teen to look over. Here's link:
Another good idea for teens: you might help your teen sign up for and begin to market an affiliate program. These are strong, established businesses that sign you up for free, give you your own pre-made websites and even free learning programs. Here are several sites with good resources and freebies you or your teen should check out:
Family Biz Builder.Com (yep, that's my site!) http://www.familybizbuilder.com
Push Button Publishing http://www.pushbuttonpublishing.com/affiliates .php?rid=9945
Plug In Profits http://www.pluginprofitsite.com/main-580
Here's a company that will give you a great free "bundle" of books and CD's, just for dropping by. It'll be very educational for your teen (maybe even you!) Here's link: http://www.quickinfo247.com/8300900/SIM
We've covered a lot of ground here. The next thing to do is act! If you act on even *one* of suggestions herein, I guarante things will start happening with you and your child. Talk with them about their interests, get them working in your business, download e-book, visit some websites. Take action now and rest will begin to unfold.
Here's to you, your kids and your Internet family business!
