When I was your age, I took up any opportunity available to make more money. I didn't have a "real" job so to speak, but I made money cutting people's grass, babysitting, and repairing stuff. At times, I made some real damn good money.

Find something people need, buy it cheap (bulk) sell it at a fair price;)

Time honoured way of making money, just make sure you've done your research.

Even recently I spotted some poles for sale by a company importing them. People use 'em for landscaping, kiddies play areas and fencing.

I went round garden centres and they were like 5 times more than l could get them. Sold the lot and made a fortune.

Best start with something fairly cheap though.

Steal merchandise from your store and sell it online. It's a goldmine.

I'm serious.

Through your parents or any other adults who trust you. They have to reference you to their friends who have kids. Then if you do a good job, those kids parents will reference you to others.

Just tell them you're interested in making extra money and if they know anyone that has kids to please tell them you're available to babysit.

Buy a net:rolleyes:

I dunno, go round peoples houses with a pool and ask 'em if it needs cleaning. Go down a pool supplies shop ask them how to get involved.

You've got to start thinking for yourself kid.

Some time back when I was out of work, I would go to storage unit auctions.

You could buy the contents of a storage unit for as little as $100.00

Load up your car, truck or van, and take it to your local flea market (Hint: get there early, like 5:00am and get in line so you get a good spot)

I would actually get in line the night before and sleep in my van so I could get a choice spot.

I would average about $400.00 per weekend profit.

Sometimes, you bid on a unit and get a bunch of junk. Other times, you strike it rich.
