You can also get paid to wear a company’s logo t-shirt around (particularly if you wear it someplace conspicuous, like at your school; see ShirtsInSchools.com as one example).

Make sure you carefully decide which type of business you want to go into and are aware of the most common risks in that type of business. Then, think about the risks and reward potential of the specific business you are considering. There is a common adage of “no risk/no reward,” but smart businesspeople try to reduce risk any chance they can.
A lot of business people are good at producing their product or delivering their service, but less good about keeping careful accounting records. That’s where you come in. You may visit a small business every week or two, pay bills, send out invoices and keep accounting records.
