FREE Business Plan for Kids


Hi Friends,

FREE Business Plan for Kids… A 9-Year-Old Business Owner Shares Her Secret With You On How To Quickly, Easily Create a Business Plan.

This is my oldest daughter, Zoe. Her entire story is on her website (www.ZoesBigIdea.com), but here’s the short version of her business plan.

When she makes a steady stream of income, she wants to teach other kids to open their own business.

For now, here’s her free business plan for kids. She asked me to please share with others…


Some tips:

  • Zoe raised half the money for the machine with 2 yard sales. We paid for the other half. If your kid is serious, make the machine a b-day and christmas gift combination.
  • We looked on Craigslist.org for “claw machine” and found a few.  A good one ranges from $500 – $1000. Call the sellers and alert them the machine is for your child’s first business. People love to help kids.
  • Don’t be afraid to travel out a bit to find the perfect claw machine. We drove 4 hours round trip to find Zoe’s machine.
