How do I get, have and earn more money?
Unfortunately you learn quickly money doesn’t fall from the sky!
Before I go on, one little word of advice… if you want money, it’s going to take work, commitment and diligence. And FYI don’t do anything that’s illegal, hurtful or will land you in jail.
Kids today are smart! Unfortunately you’re too young to get a real job, but you’re not too young to earn money!
Summer will be here before you know it. If you’re in school, then start networking with your friends and see who else is looking to earn some extra money!
Then take a look at these ideas below.
Start a Business
Rent a Kid – Every parent is busy-busy and would love to hire a kid who is willing to engage their children in a sport, schoolwork or just to play and have fun. If you’re responsible, accountable, and trustworthy rent yourself out to families in the neighborhood!
Coach a Kid – Doesn’t matter if you are a math wiz or a sports star and anything in-between. All kids younger then you can use your guidance and knowledge of how to become better at anything. You can be their mentor in all areas.
