Ways to make money:

If you want something easy to do at home, then taking surveys would be perfect. Some surveys you can use are Survey Junkie, InboxDollars, Isurvey World, Life Points and MyPoints. Doing these surveys can make you earn up to $5-$35 per survey. 

Babysitting is another option. If you know a parent that needs someone to babysit their child, offer to help watch the child. 

If you love pets, then pet sitting would be perfect. If the owner is gone on vacation or away and not home, you can pet sit. When you are pet sitting, you take dogs on walks. During the summer, being a pool lifeguard is another choice if you have lifeguard training. 

You can also make videos on Youtube, and if your video has 10,000 views and you have more than 1,000 subscribers, then you can make a good amount of money from that video. 

You can also try out for acting class if you want to start a career for acting. 

You may also do chores for people by cleaning people’s houses. Tutoring can be another option if you’re a strong student in school. 

Lastly, if you are into movies, then working at a movie theater would be fun to work at. 


In the end, the choice is up to you. If you start off making money at a young age, then you will make good work habits as you get older. Of course, working as a teen may be really hard in the beginning, but eventually, you will get used to it. If you ever get bored with a job, then you can always move on to the next job that you enjoy doing. A job that you like even more may become your future job if you really enjoy doing the job. If you want a job, your job at the moment is to find one that you enjoy doing.
