    IMO give it ago and see what happens but try and cover your ass so if something goes wrong you'll be ok ;)
    I was planning on starting a business as well (I'm 13) and i was gonna be a computer reseller. i live in a city of a bout 70,000 people so not that many. i dont wanna make a lot of money so i can undercut all other local places Harvey Norman, Chandlers, etc etc but i'd need the rep
    im not sure if this is evergoing to happen but its just an idea.

    Be Creative!!!

    13 is pretty young to be starting a business.. Hell its young to be in these forums... I think i was still playing with GI Joes at 13...

    You guys gotta chill out a bit, theres plenty of time to break someones computer and end up with a lawsuit. Maybe you should wait another couple of years before you trust someone elses money in your hands...its a big liability.

    Keep learning about computers but stick to mowing lawns on the weekend for now. The certifications also help you look good. Plus, how much could you really know about them if your only 13 anyways.. Im sure you have a long ways to go.

    Im not saying to give up, but theres no need to rush right into things.

    : party ha

    So anyhow, tossing the thoughts of age out the windows. How would one that was old enough start up a computer business? Im sure that coming up with a really cool business card would do a great deal of good, but lets talk about numbers.

    How much would it cost to start up a hack shop business? Say you had a friend to help you with it. Would you need to rent out office space or could it be done from home? Would an accountant need to be hired? or can the books be kept by the owner?

    Lets talk about more than just the guys age that started the post. I hope i can speak for more than myself on the issue that this is an interesting thread. But please, elaborate. What are the prerequisites? This sort of info would be pretty helpful coming from ones who have tried and succeded.

    To start a business, you just need to obtain an Occupational License (or whatever they are called in your municipality). The kicker is that you probably cannot use your home address for the address of the business, unless it is zoned for business. To get around that issue, you might consider a Post Office Box, which will be your mailing address. You may even have a friend or relative with a business of their own who will allow you to use their business address. If you need telephone answering services as well as a business address there may be businesses in your community that provide such services for a fee of course.

    All of the above takes $, so avoid that unless it becomes absolutely necessary. The business card or word-of-mouth route is the best way to get started. If things start to take off, then you can look into the other stuff.

    Although I've never done so, the organization SCORE is available for consulting on starting a business.

    Remember to concentrate on your school work first. Try to enjoy it. You'll have the whole rest of your life to work. Good luck. :)
