Starting a Small Business

Keerthi and Ruhani host a program on how to grow a small business. Milan suggests that youth can start a small business by using YouTube, Ebay, and other social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok. Even a garage sale or a lemonade stand is a business. In a discussion, Ruhani and Keerthi both agree that they enjoy the “coziness” and “personalization” of small businesses because small businesses get to know their customers wishes and desires more than a large company. To start a small business, you have to be organized, keep accurate accounts, and be passionate. Ruhani talks about the power of social media, especially Tik Tok, to grow your business. She would like to start a small bookstore/café in her neighborhood with weekly author events. Keerthi would like to start a music store that sells only sheet music that can be scanned to listen to the sound before buying. Kevin joins the conversation with information on CHATGPT and information on how AI could help individuals start a company or new business, especially through data entry and automation. Kevin would like to start a thrift store!

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” - T.S. Eliot
