Learning about business as a beginner can be overwhelming, but there are several steps you can take to get started. Reading books on business can be a great way to gain a foundational understanding of the subject. There are numerous online courses available that cover various aspects of business, from marketing and finance to management and entrepreneurship. Platforms like Udemy, Coursera, and edX offer courses from top universities and industry professionals. Online videos, such as TED Talks and YouTube channels, can provide insights and inspiration from business experts and successful entrepreneurs. Attending business seminars and workshops can help you connect with other professionals and learn from industry experts. Check local business organizations, community colleges, and universities for events near you. Networking can be an essential part of growing your business career. Attend networking events and connect with professionals in your industry to build relationships and learn from their experiences. Finding a mentor can help you gain valuable insights and guidance in your business career. Look for mentors in your personal and professional networks, and don't be afraid to ask for advice or guidance.

Scott’s Answer

Business is broad category. I would narrow it down to what interests you. Most businesses have entry level positions that you could apply to after you complete high school or even before you graduate. My first job was working as a stocker and cashier for a used book store. I had frequented the store to purchase books and when it was time to look for a job I asked the owner if he needed any part time help. I was able to work some afternoons and the weekends. I enjoyed the experience and it helped me build confidence for later jobs in life.

Doug’s Answer

Businesses is just a fancy way of saying to make money.

I would suggest starting with a simple ‘product’ sale. Aka - eBay. It will give the idea that you can sell anything at the right price. Though, price is not the only reason people buy.

Then try selling a service. Or advertise lawn mowing/cleaning/dog walking on Craig’s list.

You’ll learn practical, basic business principles and maybe even a little $.

From there you can think about how to scale a business.

How much can you sell on eBay/Amazon? How would grow a lawn mowing business?

Good luck!
