What is a fast way for kids to make money?
If a child needs money fast, what are some good ways to make a lot of money…fast. There is little snow here, so shoveling walks is out. Anything else? I hate getting asked for money…
James Conley answers:
1. Craft Maker
Are you a whiz at jewelry making? Can you carve children’s toys out or decorative figurines out of wood? Do you paint beautiful pictures? Whatever your favorite craft may be, selling it online makes good sense. It’s a great way to earn extra money doing something you love and would probably do anyway.
#2. Seller–Online Auctions
Cooperate with your parents to organize a grand housecleaning and sell all your family’s “gently used” junk on eBay. Create each listing carefully, taking pictures of each item and doing a little research to discover what similar items are selling for. If your eBay business is successful, you may decide to keep it going. Some eBay-ers spend their weekends checking out garage sales for cheap items that might fetch a decent price online.
#3. Technical Assistant
Does your dad call on you when he’s trying to program the TV? Did your mom rely on you to get her online when she bought a new computer? If you’re a techno whiz, people will pay you handsomely for your assistance and advice. You can set up electronic gadgets and banish their gremlins when they go awry.
Do you have a secret fetish for the English language? Are spelling and grammar your secret turn-ons? If so, there’s plenty of money to be made as an online writer. You may find yourself paid to post in online forums, writing keyword-rich web materials, or even writing articles that will appear with your byline. In addition to earning money, this job is just the kind of thing that looks good on job resumes and college applications.
If you speak two or more languages fluently, offer your skills as a translator. Many freelance sites regularly advertise for people to translate materials written in other languages into English articles, brochures, and pamphlets.
#6. Baker and/or Caterer
Do you have a special knack in the kitchen? A secret recipe that makes hamburgers taste like the finest steak? A flair for serving attractive-looking plates that would make Martha Stewart turn green with envy? If so, your calling may be in catering or baking. Cater an entire dinner event or sell cookies by the batch.
Are you good with kids? If so, your talent may be babysitting. You’ll be the most in-demand babysitter on the block if you charge a fair hourly wage and keep the little ones happy and entertained.
#8. Personal Assistant
Are you organized and honest? Can you keep your mouth shut about other people’s personal business? If so, advertise your services as a personal assistant. You may be trusted to help with tasks like paying bills, scheduling appointments, tidying up someone’s work area, doing the week’s grocery shopping, or dropping off and picking up dry cleaning.
#9. Paid Companion
Do you enjoy visiting your grandparents and hearing them talk about the good old days? If so, you may have an ideal personality to provide companionship to a senior citizen. Many older people who are physically frail or becoming forgetful rely on the services of companions to keep them in their homes.
Are you good at odd jobs like repairing loose shutters, cleaning out gutters, or fixing blown circuits? Perhaps you can offer your services as a general handyman/woman. Jobs may include painting, fixing broken appliances, helping out with minor plumbing problems like a clogged toilet, or making minor home repairs.
Of course, these aren’t the only fields in which you can make money. They are just ten general ideas out of literally hundreds of home-based teen-owned businesses.

Nintendo DS made Of Cheap Hardware?
Did nintendo rip people off?
I have seen on many forums, that the DS LCD is of very poor quality. the Touchpad is dated 2004. and the material is very cheap.
Did nintendo believe they can sell cheap Games systems.
and Believe Fans will make people Spelled into it.
nintendo ds.. nintendo ds.
“The heart of Nintendo relies on its old “traditional” Classic Graphics” and “fans.”
so Nintendo can make a new system
Example:New! Nintendo DS FANz
made of the worst hardware ever. and still be make nintendo popular.
Wow. is this true. all of nintendo counts from its past. and remains of cheap but reasonable prices.
IM not blowing steam?
I was asking a question. my buddies have asked.
James Conley answers:
I guess you’re basically blowing off steam because you dropped yours and broke it.
Most things now are made cheaply. Not just Nintendo game systems. Get used to it. My kids have got toys for Christmas that have broken within the first week. TVs, DVD Players, and Automobiles all have more plastic in them than they used to. Even kitchen and household appliances don’t compare to the way they were made 30 years ago. Vaccuums used to be all metal. Show me a brand that has even a metal handle now.
So it’s really unfair to single out Nintendo when there’s so much garbage being sold on the market today.
Read other people questions too. There are a lot of people asking where to get their PSPs repaired at too on here.
Btw… We have 4 DS Lites in our household and ALL of them are working great.
You take care of it… It last. Treat it poorly and toss it around… It breaks.
