Tips On Getting Started:
  • Give lessons on what you're good at. I teach piano for 2 kids. It's easy and it's not labor or hard work! First of all, you need to be very good at the subject you prepare to each. Not just some silly knowledge of the subject. To get the word out, post posters at local market place's bulletin boards where a lot of people can see. Say how long you have been studying and the awards you have won to grab people's attention. Make little slips that people can take home to call you (13).
  • Find a kid who is struggling (14).
Tips For Success:
  • Know what you are doing. Respect your students, they are beginners, not like you, a professional. Picture yourself learning computer basics from an engineer. Ask questions before teaching a new student like when is your birthday, so you can always buy some treats to give him or her. If the student is really into this subject, teach some serious stuff. If the student is jest learning for fun, make the lesson fun! Be funny, broad, compliment your students to make them feel more confident (13).
  • Be nice (14).

$1.00 to $2.00 Per Lizard (9&Up)
$1.00 Per Lizard (Doesn't Matter)

First, you need to get one or two people to do it with you. Then, if you don't know how to make lizards, learn. After you learn how, then you need to make a lot of lizards. When you plan a date and time, you can get together and start selling (9&Up).
Get good, reliable friends to help you with the money you earn and to help make them.

Tips For Success:
At every door you get to be polite even if they are mean to you. You need to say thank you even if they don't buy a lizard. Sell all different kinds of lizards and not just one or two kinds or colors. Oh and have fun and good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (9&Up).
Don't be afraid to make the prices high for good profits.
