Starting your own small business

Starting your own small buisness

Starting my own small jewellery business has been an idea that I have long entertained, but I never felt confident enough to take the plunge. After much thought and consideration, I decided it was time for me to take control of my financial future and start a business of my own. Becoming an entrepreneur is a daunting endeavour, but I knew that with hard work and dedication, I could make my dream a reality; starting a small business at a young age can be one of the best ways to earn a little extra money.

How I got started.

Many people are looking for ways to earn extra money, and selling items online can be a great way to make it happen. Starting as a hobby, my mum and I saw the potential of selling items on various websites. We decided to give it a go and discovered that there are many different platforms available for users to sell their items.

EBay is one of the most popular sites used when looking to sell products. However, other great websites such as Etsy, Gumtree and Depop are also worth considering. Selling on these sites allows you to reach out to an audience both locally or even internationally, depending on the platform chosen. It provides you with an opportunity to generate extra income without having large fixed costs.

If you’re looking for products to start selling but don’t know where to begin, consider homemade, preloved, or custom items. Homemade items such as jewellery, crafts, or baked goods are an excellent option for a small business because they can often be made with inexpensive materials in bulk. You can also choose to sell preloved items like second-hand clothing and furniture that you source from yard sales or thrift stores.

This is a great way to make money by reusing quality items that would otherwise end up in the landfill, and custom orders are another great option for your small business – whether it’s personalized artwork or customized apparel designs. Don’t forget that these kinds of orders require extra time and resources, so it’s important to factor this into your pricing model!


In conclusion, starting a small business can be a great way to make extra money. It takes dedication and hard work, but the rewards can be worth it. You have control over what you do and how you do it, allowing you to express your creativity in a profitable way. You also gain valuable experience that will prove useful in many aspects of life. Finally, it’s an opportunity to develop your skills and create something that’s truly yours.
