Money-Making Ideas for Young Entrepreneurs

I've been trying to make money ever since I was 7 years old. Some of my ideas have been more successful than others. But all in all, the ventures I pursued in my younger years panned out and I made some (relatively) great money. The experiences I had, and the ventures themselves, taught me a lot about how to be a successful entrepreneur and provided me with a solid foundation going forward.

This post is a recap of some of the businesses I did. Get with your kid and try one!

Age 7: Sodas at City League Baseball/Softball Games

My hometown of Rocklin, CA has a great baseball and softball city league scene. My dad at the time played on one of the teams. So every Friday night I went to his games. But I was always thirsty. And their drink selection was horrible. I had found an opportunity.

With the help of my mother I went to Costco every Friday before the games and purchased sodas and bottled water in bulk. We also got some ice. I filled two coolers full of drinks, grabbed my big cardboard sign I made, and we headed to the park.

Welcome Back, Old Friend

On Twenty Five to Life

July 24th

I open the orange envelope and shove in four condoms and a pinch of magic mushrooms. As long as I had to give my friend a parking ticket, I was going to make it as pleasant as possible. She incurred it when we moved three boxes of her life into my room. It’s a short story- Her abusive, violent ex-girlfriend kicked her out of their apartment and now her possessions are in friends apartments in three boroughs of New York. One of which is my tiny 2 bedroom which I share with my parents. Between us, Liz and I have eaten more pussy than Alf, traveled the world, lived abroad to teach children, and now have 'real jobs' in Manhattan. College is 4 years past and 25 is in the rear-view but if the question is "What makes an adult?" the answer isD)None of the Above.

I eat two caps and a stalk and head to the Overlook in Midtown. Sliz is on the second half of a Long Island when I get to the bar and hand her the orange envelope.

"You've been served."

"Oh wonderful. Just what I needed now that I'm brokeandhomeless," she quips, putting her drink down to give me a hug. "Good to see you again."
