Want to Start Your Own Business?
Do you fancy running your own business? We are looking for people who want to run their own BOD business. It can be a one off thing, to raise money or a full time job.
You can be any age and getting started is simple and easy:
What does it cost?
There is no joining fee. You just pay for stock.
The starter stock kit is £48
What is included?
- £50 worth of stock (50% off usual selling price) You choose what you want.
- FREE copy of Young & Mighty which explains everything you need to know about running your business, marketing it and selling
- Personalised Logo: Bod by…Lucy (insert your name)
- Written press release for you to send to your local paper launching your BOD business
- Free postage for your first delivery
Postage is £3.95 for each future order
Is it really my own business?
Yes. You buy the stock and the business is in your name: BOD by..XXX. You choose where to sell your stock, how to display and who to sell to. You can even choose how much you sell your items for. You are responsible for collecting the money and all the money you earn is yours (you will need someone over the age of 18 to advise you on this). The harder you work and the more time you spend on it, the more you will sell.
Do I have my own territory?
No. You can sell to who ever you want, where ever in the world they are.
However, you do have to let us know what events, shows and fetes you plan to do. Only one BOD stall is allowed at each event and therefore if someone else has already told us that they are doing the same event you want to, sadly you wont be able to sell there. To keep it fair for all the sellers, we are very strict on this and if you ignore this rule, you will no longer be able to run your BOD business.
Can I set up my own Facebook group and sell directly from there?
How does it work if my customers want to purchase online?
They can purchase via the official BOD website and you can give them a code, which gives them a small discount and tells us they are your customer. We then will send you stock vouchers, so you can buy more stock with the money.
How do I make money?
This is very simple; you buy the stock from us for half price and sell the items for full price.
You pay £2.48 for a key ring
You sell the keyring for £4.95
You make £2.48 profit
How else can I sell my BOD products?
The main ways to sell BOD products are through: Facebook/Instagram/Summer fetes/events/Christmas markets/Monthly Markets/Friends and Family/leaflet/Official BOD online store and hold BOD shopping parties. We don't expect you to do them all, sit down with your parents/guardian and see which ones suit you.
If I am under 16 do I need permission from a parent/guardian?
Yes. You will need their help with the money management side, especially if you start to earn a lot. We also need to know that they are supporting you on this (you need people to listen and offer advice when setting up a business).
How do I get started?

We will then get in touch to get your first stock order.
