im going 2 work at my grandfathers buisness, im very lucky, both my dad, mom, and grandfather own their buisnesses, so i can work for either, i shouold make around 600 or so american. ill make or take in another 1.2k or so with the most ingenious idea since dry socks, parking cars at my grandmothers house during the football games. heres how it works. my grandma live bout a block from the stadium, ideal paarking distance. the parking lots on campus, and the sidwalks fill 2 days b4 the game, so any 1 coming in tht day are screwed. what many houses close 2 campus do is they sell parking spots. i dont acctually "park" the cars, but i get the money :). i offered it 2 my grandmother, she didnt want it, said she couldnt use it, shes 100. i can park about 15 cars, i leave the sign on an oak tree facing both traffic directions, she lives on the campus street, and i play football, games, eat, tons of stuff and make anywhere from $20 when the college isnt playing a rival to about $50 if ther playing alabama, their #1 rival. its a good way of "stealing" money. maybe somthing like tht?

Anything but lifeguarding... I've done it for 3 years now, and I don't know why I'm still doing it - it's so boring!

can't you get a "regular" job at 15?
from my own personal experience.....
get a job selling shoes in an upscale shop that caters to girls your age. easy job, meet girls, learn how to shmooze. good experience and if a lovely lady in a mini skirt comes in, well that's just icing on the cake!
it's all in the mirrors...........think about it........oh yeah

are you computer savy? Fix computers or build and code myspace pages for people. I know a guy who makes extra money doing it. i think it amounts to 200 extra a month or more.

Do life guarding, it is boring but depending on where you are you get lots of money... I make 2 grand a week, or at least over summers at this public pool, 8 hours a day 5 days a week at 25 an hour. :) The best part is that it's like 5 ft deep at most so people don't have issues that often... Although I think it might just be my area because other people say thats lucky as hell..

$25 an hour! That's insane, but then again it's a public pool. I work at a private pool and we get 5/hr which is about $10/hr!

I used to babysit some little kids. The kids were evil but the parents paid really well. They would always fight each other, and never stop even if I tried to break them up, so I eventually let them fight it out themselves. A lot easier for me, and it seemed to help them solve their own problems.

@phip. you need to be 16 to get a real job.

but a shoe shop sounds interesting when my birthday does come around :P...

computer one sounds interesting.

as does babysitting.

and cutting grass lol.

well lifeguard is sort of impossible at the moment.

ironically our local swimming pool was flooded and work has been going on for a while to fix it lol.

But sometimes it's really easy, when the kids fall asleep or they listen to you.

Soy, that actually doesn't sound too bad. Like it's bagging groceries and stuff. Not bad especially for age

I know someone who makes an extra 50 ($100) a week from selling stuff on eBay on behalf of other people who are too computer illiterate to do it themselves. That seems like a pretty easy job to me!

I would pay someone to show me how to use ebay. lol... I have an account but have never used it. I would like to sell some things and maybe start like a part time job selling on ebay, But I have to learn how to use it first. I'm not that great on a computer.
