Get a part time job.

You're young though - there are still laws governing how many hours you can work each week, though these are often circumvented.

Look locally - check out local stores, fast-food places, etc.

Or offer to do chores/odd-jobs for your neighbours. Babysitting, dog-walking, car-cleaning, lawn-care....you get the gist.

Optimus..not sure about the wisdom of suggesting drug-dealing to anyone, let alone a 15 year old...

You know?

maybe you could become a spokesman for the Confusionists? i'm not sure you would get much monetary compensation for your time but you would get quite a lot of spiritual fullfilment which, as we all know, is far more important than money.

sell a kidney on the black market.. you got a spare and you could also probably claim disability benefit.

Nah. You can survive perfectly with only one kidney....it's unlikely you'd qualify for disability afterwards.

Find a busy park in a city centre and offer to draw portraits of tourists. Make sure you get the cash up front so that they can't refuse to pay if it's crap. It may also help to pretend you are French.

If, however, you are looking for a less legitimate and easier scheme, I suggest you brew some bootleg cider and sell it to your friends...

All you need is apple juice, sugar, yeast, a few large plastic containers and some pierced balloons, or some form of airlock.

Blood and Sperm banks. You could get $50 a pop!! And maybe even some free orange juice.

I need money too my friend. I support a ill wife and a toddler boy on one income. I work part time on top of my career to pull it off. Unless you are born rich there is no substitute for hard work.

My suggestions?


#1 If you are unskilled, nothing beats waiting tables. I know, its sounds terrible, but a good waiter can make a couple of hundred $$ a day and all you need is to have common sense, a good smile, and a little bit of hustle. I always tip my waiters 20% if they are good.

#2 Landscaping. Mindless hard, hard work but you can get paid. Mostly under the table to.

And this one I recomend the most (no kidding):

#3 Start a cleaning business!!! Go buy a decent vacuum and some basic cleaning supplies and start cleaning houses. You can EASILY make $40-60 per hour if you do good work, UNDER THE TABLE. My parents had this couple come over to clean for them. They drove a brand new Porche 944 (it was the 80's) and they did the whole place in an hour for $60. They told me on day they did 8-10 houses a day, 4 days a week. You do the math.

Thats what I recomentd if you dont mind doing some hard work. But if you just want easy money with no effort or skill, just rob a bank or get a government job...

Guys?

RK is only 15.

That excludes him from many (if not most) of the legit suggestions here....

15? I missed that.

Then I just suggest landscaping. When I was a kid they called it "mowing lawns"

He could score some decent cash this way.

Aw, c'mon man. Don't even go down that road
What's wrong with doing something honest? You were asking about stuff for web development in a different thread man. There's halfway decent money in that if you can get a decent idea. People will pay $700-800 for a five page site. Mess around with HTML, get a cheap graphics editor, and you got your business right there.

Man, scams. Jesus Christ...

EDIT: edited to fix bbCode, then forgot to put it back in...

How much time do you spend doing these things a week? Give an honest answer--you already admitted to it; if you spend 50 hours a week doing it it ain't gonna look much worse. Let's say you spend 5 hours. That's 5 hours a week you could spend learning how to do something, say HTML, Java, working on cars, whatever. Something constructive that you can turn into a cash cow at some point in time. Learn a musical instrument--go to a pawn shop and buy an acoustic guitar; you find a decent one for probably $20, and if you pawn that pellet gun to put towards it I assure you not only will the squirrels be happier but you'll thank yourself for the guitar in a year or two.

Newsflash: overnight success takes about 20 years. The only "get rich quick" scheme that half-way works is convincing people to pay you to tell them how to get rich quick. Even the market for that is flooded now days, so your SOL on that front.

The great thing about doing web sites is that it's for other people. Other people come up with the idea, and they pay you to put that idea in action. You need to create a portfolio of some kind--build a web site for a company for free, do a home page of your own at geocities or something, do something for a friend or family member. Get yourself something to show to people. Then hit the pavement with a box of CD's--that you burnt yourself--and pass them around to the various small businesses in the area along with a rough price sheet.

No matter what your gonna do, it's going to take work. If you're just wanting a couple bucks here or there, ask your parents/gaurdians. If they cut you off or can't help you for whatever reason, then you need to do something about it. There are no quick fixes. I've been working on programming and web development for 6 years, and only in the past year have I gotten any serious projects. I've been working on music for 11 years, and just now am I getting to the point I might have some shot at a future in it. Patience is not a virtue teenagers tend to have--I was worse than most and it still hasn't worn off--but you can't expect to get anywhere without going there.

If you know what you're doing, and if you can prove you know what you're doing, they will. You might not be able to get top dollar for it, and you're probably not going to be re-doing Wal-Mart.com But the first company I worked for as a web developer had paid interns from the high schools. It ain't gonna be easy, but it sure's to hell ain't impossible.

How about this, move to California and I'll give you a job. 20 bucks a day and you hardly have to do a thing.
All I'd want you to do is the following.

1. Don't talk about America in any language that I understand (English or Spanish)
2. Stay off of ATS.
3. Wash my truck.

If you can rebuild a transmission there's another couple hundred bucks and a second truck to wash.
