Teen Zone: Summer Money$

heap of different nominal per dollars

While I do not have a lot of bills, I still have a few things I would like to buy or a couple things to pay for; how can I earn money this summer? Naturally, we would all like to start earning extra money at some point. And if making money has not been at the top of your list thus far, think of yourself as fortunate. Even young adults that have parents or guardians that help cover main expenses enjoy earning extra spending money for camp, outings, a car, phone or spending money. However you see yourself in the near future or whatever purpose you find yourself looking for work, know there are a ton of ways to earn money as a teenager! So, here is a little inspiration. First, I will begin with online opportunities. Now, before you begin, please check with your parents (yes, even if you are over 18) because you can find out what kind of internet security you have and whether or not these are worth your time. Do you really want to put in a ton of hours for a couple bucks? Some do because they are already online or have internet running 24/7 and etc. While others, it may be a complete waste of your time that could be better used and make you far more money.

The best part, these are NOT online! While there are places listed for surveys, watching videos, and such online; be sure to filter them through your parents or a safety net to be sure they are safe. AND many of the “odd tasks” are only pennies or a few bucks unless you go through an actual company that is reputable, invest in a demand skill and/or commit more full time hours.

While these are just a great start for a list, remember there are so many more options out there! However, I will add this, you only have 18 summers to enjoy before you HAVE to make money. And while making and having extra money is nice, so are amazing memories. So, while making money for camp and to put away for the future can be at the top of your list, be sure to add fun, creativity and great times too!
