How to make money, and have fun too!

Three ways to turn your skills into extra cash.

Your thoughts (39)

Want to make money? Think about things that you’re really great at and get ready to get paid!

A delicious opportunity
Are you super‐smart in the kitchen? Do your friends somehow always show up when they know you’re the one cooking? Start selling your homemade dishes or snacks at school. Neo is 13 and she’s been helping her mom cook since she was tiny. “Whenever I need extra money, I make cakes and sell them to my friends after school. I sell them for less than the ones at the store next to the school, and they’re fresh so people like them better.”

Teach someone a lesson
Nosipho is 16, but she’s already a teacher because she gives lessons after school to three younger girls that live near her house. She started casually, just offering assistance for free when kids would ask her, but some of the parents were so happy with how fast their daughters were learning that they paid her to help their kids with homework twice a week. Nosipho says, “I get some money to spend on the things that I want, and I feel good because I know I’m helping someone else to learn, too.”

Work of art
Lesego started designing logos and posters for businesses in her neighborhood when she was 15. She started off by making drawings and computer art for business cards for her aunt’s salon. Her aunt was so impressed, she recommended her to two of her other friends who had small businesses. Her business grew from there. She’s now studying graphic design at university.

Most of my classmates want me to give them extra classes I approve of the idea And I will be able to make extra cash But the only problem is my lil sisters won't be looked after And that would make my parents very worried and sad too So should I choose giving lessons or my sisters??

Sit down with your parents and ask them about their thoughts , they might understand and may wvn allow you to do it or you can make a deal with them but I wish you good luck. May you pass all your exams

I am 9 years old and I am a great singer but whenever I sing my older brother always complains but I don't complain whenever he sings. And whenever I ask my parentss to enter singing competitions they say no or they say that I am too young and they know my talent of singing and I also have a talent of tennis and they are more interested in my talent of tennis than of singing. But that's how life is. Life is unbelievably hard but the reason why it's hard is because we make it hard

@pretty.com

Stick to what u believe in🤔 shock them and they will be suprice🥺 prove them wrong that u are made to sing not to do what u don't want to do❤️

Shapo

Do what you want to do and prove your parents wrong....don't let them win..they want you to do what they want

I am a 16 year old girl and have loved literature from a tender age. Now I write poetry of my own and currently is writing a poetry book. I was hoping to get published mid 2018 but most publishing companies don't prefer poetry and it gets hard for me to find a great publisher. My friends suggested I post my work online but I'm scared that it will get stolen somehow. What should I do that will make publishers notice me? I am also an aspired entrepreneur. Most funding companies wait their clients to be at least 18 but I'm so worked up with starting my own medium sized restaurant so bad that I cannot wait any longer. I feel that I'm ready for this so what should I do to get funds?

Hi Lost_Soul28. Thanks for sharing your comment with us. I think you have great ideas and I think you should speak to the people at the National Youth Development Agency they are a governmental organisation which assist youth with funding for their business ideas http://www.nyda.gov.za/

Ask children who have low grades who want to pass, you can tutor some for a fee. You can even tell people in your community that you will be tutoring many children want help
