Hi Noah!
Good question. I recommend both getting a job (or two!) and putting all of your earnings into a savings account for college, as well as finding and entering college scholarship contests/offerings online (Niche and Cappex are good places to start). There are jobs you can get that are super flexible and would enable you to work full time, while making money doing other things. Here's what i'm thinking would be your best bet in terms of making the most money in a short amount of time: Get a job at a restaurant or hotel where you'll have the ability to earn more than minimum wage through tips. In your spare time, become a dog walker/sitter! There are sites like Rover where (if your parents are ok with it of course) you can create a sitter profile and watch dogs for people either going on vacation or in need of a walker during the day. You can also go onto sites like UserTesting.com and get paid for reviewing websites - check it out!


If you have any follow on questions for me please let me know! Happy to help further if I can:)


If you work hard and have a positive attitude you'll do great. Good luck Noah!
