  1. Learn how to write sales copy. The only thing you need to know is persuasive salesmanship. Study direct response marketing / copywriting and you will be able to make money in nearly any market, online or off.

  2. If you have an interest in programming – go learn programming. You’re going to need a decent amount of learning before you can build anything profitable.

  3. Etsy. Find a simple craft and go from there.

    I set up my 13yo daughter with $100 seed money. She bought inventory, set pricing, planned promotions, processed orders, tracked profits, and learned a lot of the basics of business without worrying about the more complicated details of running a business (building websites, advertising, accepting credit cards/ merchant services, etc.).

    My daughter made distressed tee shirts and earned about $600 in the summer working about 1 hour per week. Could she have made more? Certainly! But the money was a side benefit – the real value for her was learning about running a business.

  4. If you’re in the US you might contact a company called SCORE. It’s volunteers that mentor people trying to startup a company. They try to pair you with mentors who know your field.

    I’m not sure I can advise you on what type of company to start, but they can at least help you through the steps.
