Dear Dish It :: Quick Cash

Aug 19, 2010

Dear Dish-It,


All the stuff I want for back-2-school shopping add up to more than $300. My mom and dad are definitely not going to shell out the cash, and I'm too young for a real job, but too old to go outside and run the neighborhood lemonade stand. I'm great with computers and tech stuff. Do you have any ideas for some quick cash before school starts?


EJ


Dear EJ,


You’ve got plenty of time to make $300. There are a bunch of different ways to start choosing what kind of job you need to make for yourself. Let’s brainstorm…

  • Manual Labour
  • Cutting Grass
  • Yard Work
  • Car Washes
  • Selling Something Interesting
  • Mama’s Secret Cookies
  • Paintings, Pictures, Crafts
  • Computer Lessons for your Neighbors

It should be easy to choose one of these things to try. Make sure you pick something that you’re willing to put in 100% effort, because time is of the essence.


Entrepreneurial Energy

The hardest part to getting your $300 is to put in a lot of time and energy into the job you choose. If you choose to make a car wash, make sure you put in 8 hours a day and be energetic, happy and treat your customers great. Use your computer skills to promote your car wash. Let everyone on facebook and twitter know that you are raising money for school and tell them about your car wash. Design posters and let your neighborhood know you’re serious. If you put in the time and effort, the world will bring you $300 no problem.


Also, if you have some friends that want to help, people are much more willing to contribute to a team of fundraisers. If you and a friend decide to go door-to-door selling mom’s cookies, it could be more fun sharing the experience.

It's important to think about why you are wanting to wear the makeup. If you are wanting it to impress someone, then chances are makeup is not the solution. When you are in middle school the need to impress escalates greatly. You do not always need to impress people with your looks. Impress them with your mind, blow them away with how good you are in a certain topic or how fast you read your assigned readings. Being pretty is something everyone strives to be, but how about being pretty smart, pretty funny, pretty kind, pretty helpful. There's all kinds of pretty. Now, if you are doing your makeup because it's fun and something you enjoy doing then by all means do it. Makeup can be an art, no matter what people say. I have many friends who's general art skills have increased because they can do their winged eyeliner perfectly, or their contour is just right. The point to all this is simple. Do the makeup for you, not for others. Please talk to your mom respectively about the topic and see if she changes her mind, and please do not be discouraged if she doesn't.  I hope this helps.
