New TeenBiz Listener Business: Forward Slash Media
Fri, 12 Sep 2008 13:50:26 PDT
Ben C, a TeenBiz listener just started a new video editing business called Forward Slash Media. To test his skills I had him create the new video that is found on the top of the right sidebar of the site at teenbizideas.org...he did a great job and his fees were very reasonable.
Right now Ben is offering a 50% discount to new customers on their first project. If you need any video editing or production done in the next little while, shoot Ben an email at email@example.com .
I guarantee you won't find anyone else that can edit video at prices like Ben's.
Great job Ben and best of luck!(image)

EBOOK REVIEW: Kids Business Ideas
Fri, 09 May 2008 14:57:23 PDT
On the podcast last week I mentioned a new product, Kids Business Ideas
, that TeenBiz listener Tessa Smolinski created. A couple days later Tessa emailed me a copy of her book to check out. To say I was impressed would be an understatement!Kids Business Ideas
is full of a lot of really, REALLY solid stuff. Tessa really has the entrepreneurial spirit and mindset.
I can easily see how someone could flip through this book and say, "man, there's nothing really new..." but they would be wrong. If you decide to give this book a try, take it slow. Chew on each idea for a few minutes and let your creativity explore the possibilities. Print out a copy and make notes on the book as you go. Do this and you WILL finish with a fat list of high-potential businesses you could start very easliy.
The only downide I saw was the formatting. It was a little bit difficult to follow simply due to the text formatting but I talked to her about it and it sounds like that is not permanent and it will be all snazzy very soon.

As alluded to in the podcast SEOMoz.org

--Building friendly sites

Plus many other topics that are worthy of your time. It will take you about an hour to an hour and a half to go through this (don't skim, print it off and highlight as you go, really study this stuff) and will be one of the more valuable hours spent on your business.Click here to download
