    Okay, I know theres a thread a few down from me on this, but I REALLY have absolutely no idea how to do this. Basically, what im Wondering is what type of registration and/or permits should I get , and roughly how much itll cost me to get it up and running. :cheers:

    Firstly, you're too young and inexperienced. Secondly, the other thread would have sufficed for this question. Thirdly, you're still too young.

    He's right Beefy, I started thinking about TweakTown when I was about 14 and eventually got the ball rolling around 15.

    Even if he just does something small he has nothing to loose and the experience is very good and will give you more confidence for the future.

    Your not spoiling anything. He's too young for a business.

    BUT

    It may be very lucrative to run a small computer scam in which you dup adults to give you large amounts of money in return for one of those new fangled contraptions called a computer - since only young people know about those.

    amd_man2003:
    Get business cards. Vistaprint.com works. Your too young to really get anything moving. Frankly, id be suprised if you got a half dozen customers by the end of the year. But the experience of meeting someone, stricking conversation about your trade, and handing them a business card along with an offer to do business with them. Thats priceless. The simple ability to converse well and network yourself in whatever business you choose (i've choosen pimping) is a great gift. If you make enough money talking to friends parents, and parents friends, and every other combination of those two words, to build yourself a new computer. Than you've done your duty.

    That's basically what I started telling him over ICQ, minus the business card part.

    Tweak, starting a website is a lot different to starting a fully functioning business. If a website fails, then you don't lose much. If a business fails, you do. Not that I'm saying it's going to fail, but you really need a bit of experience and knowledge to get one running. When you're young and wanna get into the computer business, then doing odd jobs for family and friends is a good way to start. If you do a good job, word of mouth will spread and you'll rack up a nice little 'client base'. Initially if you don't charge people they'll be happier, so when you do start taking it seriously you can start introducing fees and so on.

    But I still don't think you have the experience...

    Think Scam, not business.
    And People skills, not computer skills.

    Lets get him started on the right track to becoming a educationless, soul-less, lying, millionaire con-artist as early as possible.
