In this video, Alex Hormozi discusses the best business for students to start, which is test prep and tutoring.

He explains that instead of selling tutoring, one should sell the outcome of tutoring, which is to get into a better school or pass a standardized test. He suggests using a semi-private model where one can charge two-thirds of what they would charge for one-on-one tutoring but can work with eight times as many people. Hormozi also provides tips on how to package and sell the service, including prepayment and a three-day curriculum.

He emphasizes that test prep is repeatable and can lead to top one percent earnings with no capital out of pocket.

  • Test prep and tutoring is a profitable business for students.
  • Sell the outcome of tutoring, not the tutoring itself.
  • Don't do one-on-one tutoring, do one-to-many.
  • Have a three-day curriculum that you teach the class A and class B separately.
  • Hit up your network and DM people in your high school.
