How To Make Money As A Teenager
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you a teenager? Do you find that trying to juggle school, athletics, and a social life, leaves you with butterflies flying out of your empty pockets? I'm sure you don't won't to wait until you out of college to start making money...Do you? Simple enough question, right? Is there a difference between just making money versus building wealth?

Yes…there is a significant difference. If you just want to make money then go down to the nearest mall and start churning hot dogs at Hot Dog on a Stick and work for $7.50 an hour. What I’m speaking about is trying to connect to you and open up your mind, and tell you DON’T SETTLE!! You have more potential then you realize and you can make a lot of money…even as a teenager if you understand how rich people think versus how poor people think…believe me there’s a difference. I once heard that 98% of people end up dead or dead broke by the age of 65, and the other 2% actually have created wealth. Which one are you?

Why do professional athletes make a lot more money than amateur athletes? Why does a heart surgeon make more money than a nurse? The basic answer is value. Professional athletes have skills that amateur athletes don’t have and therefore have more value and get paid more. The market place pays for value! According to Dani Johnson the author of First Steps to Wealth “…the only thing that produces value is skills. You need three skills sets: professional skills, people skills, and personal and development skills.” So is education important…you better say “OH HELLZ YEAH IT IS!” Why should you say that, because education produces skills and skills produce VALUE, and once again the marketplace pays for value!

Think about it for a second…why are some people financially well-off, and others struggle to keep a positive balance in their checking account? What is the difference? Bottom line it’s your mind set. You are a product of your inner world. What I mean by that is what you think you are you become. How you look at money determines if you have any. This is what I mean be how rich people think versus how poor people think. If you want to learn more about that read T. Harv Eker The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.

The last thing I have to say about how to make money as a teenager….WORK! Don’t think that you can just watch t.v. play xbox, all day and expect to be in the 2% when 98% of teenagers are watching t.v. and playing xbox…what kind of balance do you think they have in their back account…how about your bank account…are you in the 98% ….your bank account reflects where you are. Don’t be lazy, obtain an education to increase your value!

There are some tools out there that can help position yourself to start creating wealth…but no system, or tool, will give you results you want if you don’t INVEST in yourself, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY, AND PRESEVERE! How can you make money as a's simple find the right vehicle, change your mindset and you could end up being a 2%er. If you want to make money as a teenager then get the tools to do what no other teenager is doing, but again it’s up to you!
