@Mr Incognito - I suggest your cousin to complete his study in businss administration and then think about the business. Withought any business knowledge he cannot do anything.

As other serious posters suggested - try some sort of business that functions as a service so you don't need inventory (which requires a lot of startup capital). Some service that makes life more convenient for people - professional organizer, car leasing broker, mortgage broker.

I know someone who is a car leasing broker - he makes arrangements with several car dealerships for their cars that they have trouble moving off their inventory, and then he offers leases for any brand/models of cars, but he offers great deals for the ones that the dealers are trying to get rid of. And he delivers the car to people's homes and all the paperwork is taken care of at the time of delivery.

Most of these replies are pretty dumb.

Get him to open up a home inspection, or other low capital construction based business, and have him move to the Canadian east. LOTS of potential.

True but you need to diversify and it seems whole sale operations will front inventory with no money down quite often.

or buy some inventory sell it with the profit buy more
repeat as needed.
or possibly in invest in green house and get some opium coca seeds and make the inventory himself

but ina ny event for nay oen that is think on their feet , has drive and is poor. drug dealing the way to go. and actually having a second job could actually help as it could give him conections to potential costumers.

Have him start a 24 hour maid/cleaning service. You'll have men calling you at 4 am desperately needing someone to clean the house get rid of the evidence of the stripper party before his wife gets home in 4 hours from her business trip. Then he can gouge the shit out of him.

Your friend should've been building his 'business' since before he started college.

How do you build your business before you start college? I am a junior in highschool right now and really interested in looking for ideas. Hope this doesn't derail thread.

I have a few pretty good steps:

1.) become a human. this means that you stop being mediocre. stop having nothing to differentiate you from anyone else.
2.) take the thing that makes you different and explore why it makes you different
3.) find out how you can package your humanity into a product
4.) start out making a little bit of money. after a few years, you'll either still be making a little bit of money or be fucking insanely rich.

I'm new around here, so I'll gather the landscape before I start going in on some people with their absurd remarks.

 

1. Vending Machines

2. Street Sweeper

3. Courier Service

4. Janitorial Service

 

Bundle it all up into enterprise facilities management solutions.

Tried proven and boring ideas are probably the way to go. However, if he wants new cool and different, then he might want to take a look at the various new businesses listed on this site:
