How Can a Teen Make Money
If you are a teen, it can be quite frustrating when trying to make money, especially around the ages from 15 up to 17. Why? Because it is at this age when your parents are probably begging for you to get a job. “Go fill out an application at McDonald’s”, “The deli is hiring, go check it out” are some of the tings parents might say when trying to motivate their teens to make money.
However, if you are a teen looking to make money, it might be a better idea to start your own business. There are a few different ways to do this, and you will be learning some life long lessons – and even possibly end up making more than your parents.
You have probably heard quite a few stories of how teens have made money online. Do you think they became successful at 19 by mowing lawns, washing cars, or picking up a job where they have to ask “Would you like fries with that”? I don’t think so.
The fact is that teens probably have a better chance of starting a successful business online, simply because they are already computer and internet savvy enough. Web design classes are taught in high school now, along with many other computer skills. This gives them a gigantic advantage over adults.
Teens, listen up. You can start a business online with no money required, and I am not talking about taking surveys online or stuffing envelopes. You don’t even need a website. If you can research things on the internet, I can assure you that you can make money.
Just think about it. If you start your business now at 15, 16, or 17 years old, by the time you are ready to start your career, you will have more life and work experience than your other peers who did nothing with their free time. If you work hard and become successful before you start a career – well then the possibilities are endless. You could have a home based business, in your home home by the time you are 21. How cool would that be?
