Hi, Julian,
That's a great question, and I understand your concern, as I was once there. Making money is never easy, but there are usually good opportunities. My suggestion is to consider what handyman jobs you might do. In my neighborhood, there are several teenagers who trim bushes, mow lawns, shovel snow, and do related tasks. From speaking with a few, the money is good and neighbors appreciate what they do. A benefit of this work is that it looks good on any college submissions, demonstrating that you take initiative and are committed to success in your life. All the best in your pursuits.

Julian -

You want "advise to make money" and "get thousands"while not "working a 9-5" and not being in front of a PC.

First, when you say "thousands" my assumption is thousands in a year period. 9-5 refers to a full-time job, so not sure if you are open to a part-time or just freelancing/gig worker. Either way, I agree with the previous responses and at my age now, I would want my teenager to think about it this way:

1) Find any job that involves working where you are selling or serving people. A sales job is great as it develops you and you have the opportunity to earn $$$ and not be stuck to a PC and usually doesn't require a strict 9-5p schedule. If you aren't into sales, then perhaps be a server/waiter at a restaurant; because you want to make thousands, then aim for the more popular or upscale restaurants where you position yourself to earn higher tips. Either way, selling or serving people allows you to develop emotional intelligence, read people, persuade people, and influence people; these are fundamental entrepreneurial traits.

2) I would want my teenager to see the money aspect a bit differently as well. Are you aware of the cookie jar experiment with toddlers? They are told that they can eat a cookie, but if they wait for a few minutes more, then can get two?! This is the same concept here. You want thousands, but if you can wait for the $$ and work on your skills, and clarify what you are interested in or really good at, and then become the best at it... you will be in a position to earn thousands of thousands.

Hope this helps.

Hi Julian,

You're not limited to a 9-5 or remote job to make money as a teenager! When I was your age, I had a part-time job at retail shops, while some friends of mine worked in fast-food places. We all managed to earn more than a thousand dollars in just a few months. I recommend searching for appealing part-time jobs in your area and applying! Once you start working, remember to set aside a portion of your earnings to help you achieve your goal!

Wishing you the best of luck.
