No waiting for highschool to get over, and getting late to our jobs because detention was longer than usual!
Now, with the aid of social media teens can do anything anytime [keeping all the legal restrictions intact of course]. The best part is, nothing is forced and they are doing something they are passionate about. Therefore, something that is helping them to grow and prepare for the future.

1. Teen Money
As a teen, are you planning to earn some bucks through your talent and help of social media? But, are you confused!
Don’t worry we all are something.
Simply keep reading!
If you don’t wish to venture into the sea of digital marketing and are simply trying to make some quick bucks, we have that covered as well.
Yes, I know it is an article for teens!
However, contrary to popular beliefs, some high school kids exhale in their academics. Not just that, they are either asked by their fellow classmates or by someone junior in their school or neighbourhood to share their notes or simply make them understand something.
There is no shame in monetizing your knowledge. The entire world does it.
Okay, I am not asking you to start charging money for every math sum you explain to your fellow classmate. That would be ridiculous!
However, you can always start charging hourly after school hours. Advertising over your school or best, over social media can really help you get that word out. The advantage is you are also learning while teaching so it is a win-win situation.
If we are getting a little astray from convention , you can always be a videogame coach. Now wouldn’t that be fun? Getting paid for playing games, who knew!
3. Starting A Podcast
This can sound a little intimidating but trust me it’s not. Mostly because there is no extra capital that will be needed.
Simply a closet, and a microphone! Two, or maybe three if all your bffs decide to do it.
Yes, it will take a little time to grow and you might have to learn some digital marketing tools to advertise it. But, your school is the first place you can start spreading the word around. This is for all the extroverted souls who are getting bored because of the deathly monotony of this pandemic.
Choose a subject near and dear to your heart and start recording!
4. Online Thrift Store
