Did you know that age 13, John D Rockefeller – the richest man in the world – built his family a house?!!!
As a teenager I was definitely not a productive member of society.
Quite the opposite actually.
That being said, I continue to believe that we all underestimate what kids can accomplish at every age.
If you have teenagers in your life, this video is for them.
Over the past few months I’ve got dozens of emails and comments on my videos from young entrepreneurs (9-15 year olds) asking for advice.
So after a few emails I decided to create a video sharing the 8 ways I would start making money if I were starting over in my teens.
In many ways this video is for my two boys.
Each idea is simple, focused on a passion they might have, and gets them generating revenue without requiring any money up front.
(aka the money they’d be asking you to lovingly invest)
Also, I wanted to start off sharing the 3 phases of financial leverage.
1. Time for Money
2. Money for Time
3. Money for Money
Be sure to watch the video to learn how you can apply those lessons to your day AND come up with some practical advice for the teenagers in your life.
One of my passions is working with at-risk youth helping them build their confidence through building businesses.
It’s a magical thing to watch.
To show them how something they love doing, can become extra money on the side or even their primary income.
I’ve listed 8 ways in this week’s video, but there are way more.
What would you add to the list?
Leave a comment below with your ideas, and together I’m sure we’ll inspire a whole new generation of teenagers to get out there and start selling :).
Have an amazing day!
