3 Of The Best Summer Jobs For Your Teen To Learn Responsibility And Earn Money

Improve Your Financial Health , Make Money , National Financial Awareness Day

When your kids are young, you’re generally completely responsible for taking care of them physically, emotionally, and financially. But as your kids grow into teenagers, it can be very beneficial for them to learn how to earn their own money and begin to develop both financial and personality responsibility through having a job. During the school year, many teens don’t have the time to work. But once summer rolls around, it’s the perfect time for your teen to move outside of their comfort zone and start joining the workforce. To help them get started on the right foot, here are three of the best summer jobs for your teen to learn responsibility and earn money.

Become A Camp Counselor

While your younger kids are spending their summer break at summer camp, your teen could be working as one of their camp counselors. According to Janet Fowler, a contributor to Investopedia.com, being a camp counselor can help your teen learn about living on their own, as counselors often stay at the camp for the majority of the summer. While there will be adult supervision there, being a camp counselor will allow your teen to feel like they’re living on their own, generally requiring them to do their own laundry, manage their own time, and earn their own money. The skills your teen will learn from this experience will help them not only during the rest of their teenage years, but throughout the rest of their lives as well.

Serve As An Educational Tutor

Although some kids spend their summer break forgetting about school, there are plenty of kids out there who are looking to either catch up from their previous year of schooling or get ahead for the upcoming year. In either of these situations, the parents will often look for a tutor to work with the child. According to Chelsea Brennan, a contributor to Forbes.com, high school-aged tutors can charge anywhere from $20 to $40 per hour, which could be very worthwhile for your teen. Not only will they be making fairly good money, but they’ll also be keeping their minds sharp through their tutoring skills.

Start Their Own Small Business

For some kids, the entrepreneurial bug can bite very early on. Luckily, it’s pretty easy for a teen to start their own business. According to David Quilty, a contributor to Money Crashers, teens can start their own small businesses through endeavors like babysitting, cleaning, lawn care, working as a handyperson, walking dogs, and more. Just so long as your teen has a product or service that others are willing to pay for, and all the legalities are taken care of, your teen could make money and learn a lot from starting their own small summer business.

If you have a teen who’s ready to start working this summer, consider some of the options mentioned above for a great summer job.

5 Quick Ways To Make Some Extra Money

Improve Your Financial Health , Make Money , National Financial Awareness Day

The influx of technology into our everyday lives have given way to new and exciting ways to make a quick buck.  If you have access to the internet, then you have access to a multitude of money-making possibilities.

There’s always something going on in your life that could use a little extra money thrown at it.  Take a few hints from the people who know, and check out these fast money suggestions. Start adding dollars to your bank account today. 

Drive for Uber or Lyft

If you have a good vehicle, a clean driving record, a valid driver’s license, and active auto insurance, you can make some pretty decent money driving people around town.  There’s likely a big city nearby where you live, and the weekends can be super busy for services like Uber and Lyft.

If you don’t have a great car, you can consider your ability to get an affordable rate on a business car loan.  As long as you make more money than it costs you to maintain the vehicle, you’re in good shape financially.  

Put your writing skills to use

The internet is always in need of new content, and you could put your writing skills to good use as a content writer.  A simple Google search for freelance writing opportunities will grant you several different paths to explore.

Find a writing gig that works well with your existing schedule, and have a steady stream of side money flowing into your bank account.  Make sure you’re getting paid at least $10-15 per article, so you’re not being ripped off for your efforts.  

Sell some of your extra stuff

There are numerous outlets online to sell that extra stuff you have taking up space in your garage or storage unit.  Use Craigslist, eBay, or Amazon to unload some useless possessions, and turn them into dollars. Do a little research on how to compose an attractive post on these sites, and start listing things as soon as possible.  

Tutor someone online

Get a job as a tutor online.  It’s pretty simple, if you excel in a certain academic or musical area, to find a platform to market your skills.  College students and parents will pay good money for your time, especially if you can show results in their grades.  

Offer your time for random jobs

If nothing else, you can always use social media and craigslist to market your blood, sweat, and tears for random small jobs.  Post a quick offer for assistance on your Facebook profile, and do the same for Craigslist. It won’t be long before you get some hits back on your offer.  Just make sure the offer is legit before you agree to do it.

It might sound like the less attractive of the two options, but if you shop savvy you can get just as much for your money without having to opt for overtime.

If that sounds good to you, here are a few top tips to get you started.Continue reading

3 Side Businesses To Make Money In 2019

We all want a way to bring in more money. These days, many people turn to side businesses to make money and the same goes for yours truly. In today's contributed post, you'll learn the 3 best side businesses to make money this year and beyond.

Many people in the US are struggling on a low income from their jobs and have to find other ways of making more money to financially survive.

This has resulted in more than 7.5 million Americans holding down more than one job. Even high numbers of the population have side-hustles to help them financially. In fact, it is said that more than 44 million people in the US earn extra money this way.Continue reading
