During the first week of 2007 we are launching the new affiliate product for all TeenBiz listeners to sell on their own websites or to friends or contacts that are interested in starting their own small businesses.

It's a powerfully simple and direct program that teaches a student step-by-step how to start a small business without spending a ton of money or having to quit a job they already have.

We have taken everything we know about small business and then done days of research to fill in the cracks to create this program.

What we need are a handful of TeenBiz listeners to check out the system (yes you will receive a free copy) and then provide a testimonial to feature on the website as well as any feedback you may have about the product.

Everyone that participates will get a free copy of the program and will also get their website address features below their name and testimonial on the website.

To sign up just send a quick email to and we will send you a copy later this week!

Also, the podcast will be totally revamped and will run 20-25 minutes with a few different segments. It will no longer be weekly because of the increased length but will definitely be worth the wait for each episode! See you in a couple weeks!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all you TeenBiz listeners out there!

We hope you all have a safe and successful Christmas holiday!

As a quick side note, we need 5-10 listeners to provide testimonials for the new TeenBiz product coming out in the next week or so. Each participant will receive a free copy of the new program and will be featured along with their website address on the main sales page!

Look for an audio update later this week!

Basic Idea
People want to put up light but they just don’t have the time or money to hire a professional service. You show up on their doorstep with lights in hand and offer to decorate the home for a low price.

How Much To Charge
String of Lights Costs about $5.00
Don’t mark up the cost of the lights much or At All
Tell Them You Will Decorate Their House and Trees, whatever they want for $40+ cost of lights, you can it in 30 minutes if you work quick

What You Will Need
Light Clips
Cheap Extension Chords You Can Include in Cost

None, just door to door, Word of Mouth
Neighbors Will See You (wear matching somethings so they know you are not just a random group of people)

Making snow for the holidays

This idea is thanks to Second Nature Snowmaking.

Buy just the plans, inexpensive way to get started…total cost, $75

How snowmaking works
-Compressed air creates an ultra-fine mist and as air expands it freezes the mist to create snow
-A very fine mist from a pressure washer is introduced to freeze onto the original mist to multiply output

Snowmaking requires an air compressor and pressure washer
Borrow both to get started so you can practice whenever it is cold enough

Practice a few times before you do your first job

For the jobs, rent the equipment from Home Depot, use two snowmaking machines

You can charge upwards of $100-$150 an hour for this service!

They have lots of stuff to help you get started.
