    Hello BHW,
    I am a 14 year old kid who have few problems and that's is why i need to earn high amount of cash. My father is just a simple truck driver who does not earn that much for the family. He just few hundreds of dollars per month for the family and from that much amount we can only have our school education, Food and some more stuff like tuition etc. But it is not good for me as once i passed the school I really want to go to USA for higher education etc. I too want a car for myself and some expensive cloths for my mom and some more amazing gadgets. My friends always make fun of me that my dad is a truck driver and it does not stop here. I too can't live a life with good gadgets and good stuff around the house. I can't write more about my personal life as it can make me bit cry.

    Anyways, Let's come to the topic. I already have earned 500$ total from CPA and total 4,000$ this year from my online business etc but now everything is gone and i need to start some more business for max profit so i can live my dream life. Ill be working hard with CPA so that i can earn good amount of cash per month. Now i want a GOOD suggestion for a offline business. As you know offline business rocks and can help me earn great amount of cash. ( I know CPA alone can help me be millionaire but i too want to start a offline business).

    I am thinking to start a customer care service in which ill be finding, Presenting small business owners that how a free toll number can help them a lot. Like ill too give there customer 24/7 support etc. But i too want some more business ideas like re-selling etc as i don't want to keep all the eggs in one basket. I am ready to work 19 hours daily (8 hours school :/ ) After school hours i am ready to work hard and only sleep 4-5 hours. I have thought to work with CPA at night and manage my offline business at the day time. So, Please suggest me great business ideas which can bring me LOT LOT of money and customers, I don't want that business should not work.

    Thanks a lot, I really appreciate your advice and suggestions.

    Thank you!

    Just start as a salesman of different sme's and earn by commission. Your people skills will increase and you'll learn about selling business. Study a good sales book like Secrets of Closing the Sale and off you go.

    I have been in your stage once and thought to do some offline work along with online too.
    But you know what's the catch in that plan?
    Nobody takes a 14 years kid seriously.
    Same happened with me.
    So, I stick with online IM.
    You can do several businesses online.
    Just use your time to scale things up . :)

    Good Luck !

    Thanks for your idea buddy.
    What kinds of stuff should I re-sell? Books, Medical or what?

    Thanks for the advice.

    As i said ill be doing online business at the night for 3-4 hours and that's enough for me.
    Don't worry, I am sure some people will say i am kid and why should they choose me but ill be too confident that ill manage to sell them my product. Ill not let there voices stop me.

    Your math might be a bit off with the hours but that just might be me.

    You said you would convince businesses that a toll free number will benefit them but what exactly are you selling to them?

    Think of a creative way to combine offline customers with online cpa offers. 4k at your age is pretty good. Just be creative and stay hungry and you'll get there.

    Turn an offline skill (that helps people) into a service OR find someone with an amazingly helpful skill and build a business together. They do the labor and you market them. Otherwise there's an onslaught of offline ventures to read about here.

    $4000 this year so far? Only 14 years old? That is quite an accomplishment and I hope you know that.

    Type "offline" in the forum search or go to the section and you can see tons of ideas. Most of them are about providing business SEO, SMM, ORM services but you will find some that are offline + CPA methods.

    LOL! I myself don't think 4000$ is really too much + I think anyone can earn that if he works hard.

    Anyways, i am at journey to earn 200,000$ till Dec - 2015.

    Dude... 4k and 14 years old? That's awesome stuff..

    Anyway, I don't think you could do anything in the offline biz..you're 14, people will not take you seriously.
    You need to keep learning and grow first.

    Best of luck anyway!

    I'm going to agree with this. Because I look like a 15/16 year old (I am not a teenager), people often assume that I am incompetent and do not take me seriously. I even lost one of my first clients to a college student (who later scammed my former client) because of this. On the Internet, however, many more people take me seriously because they usually judge me based on my words and the information I provide them with, not based on how old I look.

    Congrats on wanting to start a business at such a young age. I know you must be from another country other than the US because I'm also a former truck driver and I know your father should be making more than a few hundred dollars a month, trust me it's not the best job in the world but they do ok in the US. I don't know how to answer your question though because at age 14 your options doesn't seem to be that great.

    Exactly.. In any offline business, looks are very important.

    You need to have AT LEAST decent clothes, decent looking.. or people will be scared or will make fun of you.
    Let alone being 14, people will literally ignore you.. unless you look like at least a 18 years old.

    Anyway, if you think you can, you should try, hell.. never let someone tell you that you can't do something.

    If there is will, there is money.

    I don't even think looking 18 years old would help the OP. Even looking like a well-groomed 18 year old is not enough when you own a business as people will just ask why you are not in college. Many people are under this odd notion that all business owners are 30-60 years old and should be relatable with their 'life experience' (college, alcohol, sex, drugs, children, multiple 9-5 jobs, and regret all in that order). If you do not fit into this stereotype, many people will simply dismiss you as "impulsive" for "jumping into something you have no experience with".

    My advice to you OP is to completely avoid the topic of age when you're trying to close a lead. In fact, keep all of your conversations with your leads on topic and professional. If you have any business suits, wear them (or at least wear a plan outfit without any visible markings or logos). Also, do not use any teenage colloquialisms or teenage vernacular if you're one of those 14 year olds who talk like that (e.g., "Yeah brah, you just, uh, click that, um, thing on the, um, screen and you've, uh, got yourself the, uh, the, uh, the, uh, you know, the, uh, brah ha ha, you know what I mean, right bro? The, uh, thing"!). I met a "teenage entrepreneur" a year ago who spoke like that and it was egregious.
