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.

So yesterday, my dad checked my search history. Harmless, right? Well... you haven't seen it. Because they gave me a LONG lecture yesterday about what I read. I feel like they don't trust me on the internet anymore. But I also understand. Because you know what the history was? Phan  ѕмυт. LOTS of phan ѕмυт. How do I gain their trust? My mom won't let me use headphones and threatened to not let me go to VidCon. I'm not just angry and betrayed at my dad for snooping in my phone, but also embarrassed and ashamed. I'm only 10, for God's sake! They should be worried about my access to the internet. How do I gain their trust again?!
