Hi there Thomas.

Unfortunately there aren't many job prospects for 11 year olds due to law. However, I think that the best way to earn money at your age would be doing jobs for your family and neighbours if you can. You could ask for money for chores, washing the car or gardening work. Just a few suggestions

Do you know anything about making drugs or selling stuff on the black market?

I really hope you're joking. Never, ever try to make drugs to sell on to people. It would only end up problematic.
Don't bother asking silly questions when people are trying to help you.

If you want to sell things, sell legal things (old toys, books, clothes) at a car boot sale.

You are 11! At any age you shouldn't consider 'making' drugs and selling them.
Stephanie's right, you should try legal options.
You'll be far more successful, believe me.

Yes, so go out and do jobs for friends/family/neighbours
You'll be surprised at how much money you could make.


Just kiss me.

Moving this to schools and careers? If it belongs better in a place like Drugs and Alcohol feel free to move..

Newspaper boy. That is about it. Good luck with the drugs business venture, you have to know pretty funky chemistry to get that kind of thing going. As you're 11, you won't be capable of such things yet.

Rake leaves, shovel snow, mow lawns, paper route, dog walking, pooper-scooper.

I almost think you're a troll, based on your "diction" and the fact that your age is 11 and you know about the black market, but if you're not- good luck finding a job.

One flaw I see in this is- who would hire an 11-year-old that wants to sell drugs on the black market to look after their children? lol


Oh and the paper route thing that I and others suggested may not work depending on the newspaper. A lot of paper routes are done by people in cars. =/

Get a paper round, deliver milk, go house to house and say "5 to clean your street" All things i did at that age. I wouldnt hire an 11 year old baby sitter, cuz its also not possible in the UK as you arnt allowed to be home alone until your 16 or something i do believe.

Other things you can do are, collect those 20p hand in bottles or IrnBru and take them back to the shop, hand in old mobile phones for money (companies pay to recycle the batteries)

Ask your parents to give you pocket money in return for doing chores.

Some ideas for you to work on

Usually that's because the paperboys can get their route finished quicker, and they won't have to be out in the cold etc. The ones who drive probably will drive, rather than biking or walking the route.


Selling drugs on a black market? Bad idea. First off, I'm not sure how many people would be likely to buy drugs from an eleven year old. You're risking getting arrested and sent to a juvenile center [they're called training schools where I live, and it's more or less prison for minors]. This also means in the future, your chances of getting a legal, high-paying job will be extremely limited as few employers will want to hire someone who was arrested for dealing, and few colleges will want to accept someone who spent time in a center [or training school].

You're much better off sticking to doing favors for neighbors and family and such. Put up fliers around your neighborhood, mow lawns, rake leaves. Maybe try marketing a skill or hobby of yours - if you're good at music, if you can make something to sell, etc. Stay away from the illegal stuff, it won't do you any good.
