Is it possible...

<p> start your own bussiness (with some employeess) at 15 ? What if this bussiness can put its costumers property at risk (computer technician service) ? If not why? Im pretty sure you can, you just need to do contracts thorugh your gaurdians (since im 15) .</p>

<p>cooool. i say go for it .it would look awesome on your college app, but i dunno if it is possible at that age.</p>

<p>ya i really wanna do it...but not sure how legal it is...</p>

<p>anyone else know ?</p>

<p>If you fill out certian papers making it legal where you live, I don't see why not. Here some people in my school have a landscaping buisness, or rather had a landscaping buisness (they graduated).</p>

<p>Aside from a workers permit what will i need? </p>

<p>Also as i said, i am putting my employees at risk (minor but possible) and putting my costumers propert at risk. It will be a computer repair company. If i hire all a+ cert. (certified pc technician) techs (like me) will it work out? </p>

<p>Finally how much have you paid in the past for computer repair? And how much should go to tech. and me ?</p>

<p>If i cant do this ill just work at fasteks which is part time, but 30 dollars an hour. So whatever works.</p>

<p>it might be possible, but not many people would be willing to hire a 15 yr old to repair their computers (i know i wouldn't)</p>

You dont advertise that your only 15. You advertise that you went thoruggh the same ardous self study process everyone else does and took an adult examand passed, which makes you a certified technician. The geeksquad is even willing to hire me since im A+ as only their manabgement people in their 30s are at my store ! so in fact im more qualified than many techs. </p>

<p>Anyone know for a fact if its possible?</p>

<p>no, if we knew how to start succesfull businesses we wouldn't be worrying about college.</p>

<p>im not creating a big nussiness. im creaing a HS job which gives me practice with computer hardware, gives college a good idea that i have leader ship ability, a good bussiness sense, the effort to work , etc. I will still be going to college (an elite one at that) and will not be in this bussiness forever. Just for my 10th and 11th grade year. 12th if i cant get a job as a computer engineer.
Tommorow ill see my school to career counseler and see what he says.</p>

<p>Yes, it is certainly possible. Ever heard of young entrepreneurs? You just have to make sure you register your business in your town hall, and I am sure you may have to pay taxes from your business, but that I think is done through your parents.</p>

<p>As for contracts, you can definitely engage in them, especially for your type of business, though your parents would also have to sign the contract beside your name. </p>

<p>Its a great experience and I would definitely recommend it - you learn much more about business by running a business then from textbooks.</p>

<p>cool thanks a san</p>

<p>Ill check with my school to career tommorow and get the papers setup.</p>

<p>I really do not know a lot about starting your own business but I say go for it! There are a lot of teens starting their own businesses, just ask MIT for all the applicants they've had that started their own businesses. If it's what you want to do and you love it I say why not? Just ask for a little bit of help from professionals about certain things like how to start your own business stuff like that and I'm sure you could do it.</p>

<p>What kind of business are you hoping to start?</p>

<p>Good luck! I was hired in 15 too and in computer specialization as well, and I passed several certificate tests on Brainbench at the time which didn't even matter but gave confidence :)</p>


<p>Itd be a computer repair service, couty wide. I hope to have at least several emplyees. Itd be onsite (in home/office) as o dont have a store obviosuly. </p>

<p>IMPORTANT! I want to my english teacher and last years career class teacher. They both say its possible. So now i just need to know...what do i do first? Im pretty sure i need to contact the city. Who am i suppposed to call? And what licenses do i need? Etc etc.</p>
