This next post was written by my friend Nathan, who blogs over at Millionaire Dojo. It’s all about how teenagers can start making money, even at 15 years old! I definitely remember those years, from when my sons were teens. They always had important places to go, and fun things to do with their friends. And most of those things required money.
And guess who had to provide that money? Yep, the good ‘ole bank of Mom & Dad. But maybe if we’d had online resources like this one, they would’ve had better options for funding their own excursions.
Best Jobs for 15 Year Olds: How to Make Money as a Teenager
When you’re a teenager, coming up with the money to do the things you want can be tough. In reality, it can seem tough to find jobs for 15 year olds.
I know what you are thinking. “There you go, another click bait headline about getting free money. There is no such thing as free lunch.”
This is the main reason why I decided to write this article. In reality, there are free lunches in life, but you have to look for the hidden gems. And this is not surveys or yard sales disguised as free money. We will be discussing how to get actual free dollars.
We all have times when we are in a bind, when any dollar amount will make a huge difference in our lives. College for sure, but some tough times occurred during my transition from fellowship training to attending status (I’m a doctor). I had underestimated the cost of moving, getting a new place and lots of incidental spending. We were too focused on paying off our loans that we were skinny on our emergency fund.
While most of those costs were reimbursed eventually, it took some time to balance everything financially. We took out our entire emergency fund and even dipped slightly into our credit card. How else would I pay for those flights, board exams and the $10,000 to the moving company?
Well, I would have appreciated these tips at the time. Every dollar counts and I have witnessed situations when it really did.
We have talked about 101 ways to save money in the past and you can start with that. Then it’s free money time. Here are 10 foolproof ways to get free money.
Last week my phone up and died on me. It was pretty old — at least according to current standards. It was an iPhone 6 that I’d been using for the past 3 years. And I’d been noticing the battery was not staying charged anymore.
Then one day — kaplooey — it just wouldn’t start up at all.
Luckily, I’d been pretty diligent with keeping it backed up to the Cloud, so didn’t lose all of my files, photos or videos. And even luckier, we happened to have another phone laying around the house. My partner had an old 6 plus that he used before upgrading to the X. So I was able to have everything transferred to that device, and get it activated.
However I did go 3 entire days with no phone whatsoever — Which wasn’t actually as catastrophic as one might think. Then again, I do work entirely from home, so it’s pretty easy for people to get in touch with me. If I had a job that required a fair amount of travel, I’d want to have a phone handy.
But had my phone lived for a few months longer, I most likely was going to upgrade anyway. And definitely would have looked into a way to trade in the older model for some sort of compensation. So the following article is something I’d like to keep in my back pocket, for future reference.
