But also make sure that it allows you to continue your studies, especially if what you want to do is not related to this job. You should focus on your priority and use these jobs as a learning experience.
I personally started working the week I turned 16. This has benefited me as I learned important work skills early in life. This also had some downfalls though. For example, I missed out on some high school events, worked on birthdays, spent less time with my family, less time on homework etc.
My advice would be to browse the job market. Be picky with any job you accept. Do your research. Decide whether you're okay with working the amount of hours they want to assign you weekly and weigh how much it would interfere with your personal life. I also recommend looking into internships. These are temporary roles and if you don't like it, it'll eventually end.
Hope this helps! Good Luck
I started working when I was 15, and it was in the fast-food industry. I know some of my fellow students in high school thought it was humorous, I honestly believe it's made me a more responsible person. My parents set rules to keep working in high school, and the one which stands out the most was keeping my grades up. If I couldn't maintain a 3.00 minimum, I'd have to leave my job. I was able to maintain my grades, and at the same time work 20 hours a week & keep all the money I earned (albeit not a lot back then).
I believe starting work early also helps you to learn multitasking skills, which many careers require these days. I believe speaking with a school counselor once you reach high school could really help guide you in your journey. They can offer career advice as well as help you choose where you may want to consider going to college.
Well Ivan you definitely can accomplish all that you set your mind too, so continue to dream and write out your plans. I started my first job working with those in my neighborhood when I was 12 years old. I started doing hair to a few people and eventually it lead to having consistent clients until I graduated from high school. A hobby actually turned into a paid mini career. Start doing odd jobs that some people can't do for themselves and it can lead to a small business.
Practice the basics of the sport you like and keep building on that to strengthen your skills, Practice, practice, practice. Sacrifice your time from things you like to pursue your passion. Do well in school and make sure your grades exhibit the kind of owner, business person and athlete you will be. It starts with you. Create a six month, one year goals to measure your progress. Once you see where you started, that will give you and idea what path to take.
Fear not, you got this!!
