Earning Money, Ideas? - January 27th 2012, 03:14 AM

So for my ballet summer intensives, I have to earn over 1000 USD. I have about $120 right now, but I have to earn a whole lot more. Right now all I have to sell are my handmade earrings, but I don't know how to present them or make my cause seem worthy. Ballet is the only thing that gives my life real meaning, and these intensives are so important to me. How do I advertise better and what other products/ jobs could I do to earn money? (I'll be 16 in May, so right now a serious job is out of the question.)

Your best bet is to be honest. Let people know how important ballet is to you and how much it would mean to you if they bought a pair of your earrings to help fund your summer intensives. You might also want to consider doing odd jobs for people. Do simple things like mowing lawns, walking dogs, or washing windows. The jobs might seem boring, but the pay can actually be decent. Good luck!

I know etsy.com is huge on things like this, and you could make a deal of money off there selling homemade things. Or you could pass out flyers or examples to people.

I make a good deal of money handing out flyers actually at my local college campus and around the area. You can do other odd jobs for $5 on fiverr.com, including selling things like earrings. So far I've made $40 or so, and it doesn't take much time.

Take me seriously.
I dare you.
