I love that at 11 years old you want to work and get paid!!!
I say ask your parents or family members for chores they want done and ask for a small payment.
You can also ask your neighbors for small work around the house or yard for pay.
Hi Dwayne! Great question. With summer rapidly approaching, this is an excellent time to start thinking about a job. I would recommend you talk to either your parent or guardian about doing yard work for neighbors or relatives, providing dog walking services for neighbors or relatives, washing cars or doing extra chores at home. Again, talk to your parent, guardian or teacher first in order to get advice and direction. Best wishes! Have a wonderful summer!
I know I would love to have someone to climb ladders for me and change my lightbulbs, or even carry my groceries in from the car. I read a story about a young boy who started a business by taking out the neighbors trash on trash day, charging 25 cents each. It's great that you are wanting to earn your own money at a young age!
There are important things to learn about business. One is not to "over-extend" yourself. That means having too many customers and not being able to take care of them all. So you want to start with just a few customers. Another is to take pride in your work. For example, if you are walking dogs, you always pick up the mess and properly dispose of it. Other people besides your customers will see you doing that, and they will think and say good things about you, and that is how you will develop a good reputation. Soon, more people will want to do business with you. It is important to keep your word - to do what you say you will do when you say you will do it.
I wish you all the best, it sounds like you are on the right path!
