    Default 10 Best Small Business Ideas

    There are some of both in this collection of the best business ideas for students.

    1) Lawn Care/Landscaping

    This is a great small business idea for students because it's seasonal and is greatly in demand throughout the summer season - and almost anyone can do it. Another great thing about this small business idea is that it’s easily expandable; add landscaping and/or gardening services if you have the knowledge and abilities.

    2) Sports Equipment Rental

    Summer is the season to get moving and there's a big appetite for wheeling around - on bikes, rollerblades, skateboards or scooters. The right location and the right weather could make this small business idea a real money maker.

    3) Guided Tours

    If you live in an area with historical/cultural/scenic attractions, why not start your own business offering guided tours? Don't despair if you don't live in a place with spectacular scenery or historical chops; ecotours and guided hikes are becoming increasingly popular. Taking people on tours of the local flora and fauna has the added bonus of getting outside in the sweet season.

    4) eBay Selling

    This is a small business idea that could have real potential. Find the right product to sell and build a good reputation as a seller and selling on eBay could be a bonanza. The downside is that doing these two things takes research and time. On the upside, however, this is certainly a business that would be easy to continue on a part-time basis.

    5) Vegetable Delivery

    People are paying more attention to what they eat and where it comes from than ever before - and are more willing than ever before to pay a premium to eat “better”. A summer business such as preparing and delivering boxes of fresh vegetables and fruits could be very profitable.

    6) Exterior House Cleaning

    Window washing, gutter cleaning, power washing exteriors - start your own business doing the home care chores that others hate to do and you can clean up during the summer clean up season! And once you’ve established this business, it should have great carry-over potential, giving you a list of repeat clients summer after summer.

    7) House/Pet Sitting

    Many people travel during the summer and need someone to look after their houses and/or pets while they're gone. Making the rounds and taking in newspapers and mail, checking the house and feeding or walking “Sweetie” could be a great “summer job” business for you and it could even have the added bonus of giving you a place to live over the summer.

    8) House Call Geek

    If you're technologically savvy, you have expertise that a lot of people still don't. Start your own business making house calls troubleshooting computer problems and/or showing people how to do what they want to do with their computers. This is another small business idea that would work well as a part-time business post-summer, too.

    9) Rubbish Pickup

    There are lots of people with lots of junk that they would like to dispose of, as the success of 1-800-GOT-JUNK testifies. And late spring/early summer is the season of the highest demand as people do their spring clean ups. If you have access to a truck, this could be a money making small business idea for you.

    10) Instructor

    If you have a particular skill and the necessary certification, teaching can be a very satisfying and lucrative small business. Music lessons spring to mind, but there are myriad other possibilities, from yoga and aerobics through mountain biking and horse riding. Tutoring in the traditional school subjects is another small business idea with an instructional theme.

    So consider the possibilities and start your own business this summer, working for yourself rather than working for someone else. While some people are still looking for a summer job, your own business will already be up and running - and making money.

    People are becoming more aware of products with green energy, green construction, organic food and organic clothing, etc. So you can start a business associated with it also.

    Well that was a good piece of advice to the students, if authentic training is given to them, they can utilize their acquired knowledge in a real better way. But immediately after completing education, instead if sitting idle, its good to put oneself into some business. I appreciate!!
