Ways for a 16 year old to make money?

I am wondering how you guys would suggest a 16 year old, such as myself, could make approx. $2000 dollars in the next six months?

Suggestions that you guys did when you were younger and such are welcomed

Background info:
I will be getting a part time job after the first three months(that's when soccer goes into off-season). I do and always have had a strong drive when it comes to certain incentives, such as money Doing stuff for my parents is not an option because they are not willing to pay me for chores and stuff along those lines, and rightfully so in my eyes. In the first three months, my time is rather limited but your suggestions are still welcomed.

Thanks for your Feedback!

Do something where you can get tips. That way, if you are good you can get extra cash. Waiting tables, caddy, etc.

well just working around school and not really working full time it's hard to tell you exactly what I'm making...but even working part time I would easily make 2000 in six months....really probably about 4 months or so...but I've been cut from my job for Jan and Feb.

Golf course is a really good idea. Depending on where you live I can suggest a couple courses that will probably hire you. Also lawn care is always a big one. Yes its "winter" but here people water there lawns year round and there is always weeds to be picked in peoples yards. And you will be very surprised at the number of people who will hire you because your a young person trying to be productive.

Dude there is only one place that will hire you really fast, a farm, you can work on ractors they can show you, you can carry the seeds in a truck to the planter on a tractor, you can do many things there but those are really far from city limits but where i live they are every where i was making about 300 a week working 5 days a week, i work in a farm from 13 years to 16 years i liked it.

Clean gutters. you can make 20-100 dollars per house. All you need is a house and a ladder. Get a friend to do it with you and leave flyers under doorsteps with your phone number. Pay your friend like 20% of the money to just spot you on the ladder or split it with him 50/50 and you guys just blow through houses. Fall time = leaves falling and people don't want to clean their own houses...

I hope you haven't thought like most kids in high school, now-a-days if they don't have money they say. "hey i know!" "what?" "lets make a rock band!"

thanks for the ideas everyone, yeah i have been saving money for a while and have 12k saved up already but that's been a lot of work and a lot of good stock choices with the money i made by my dad. It was kinda like, i made a thousand dollars, handed it to him and he played around with that thousand in the stock market and would get it up to 1500 in no time :thumup: haha gotta love that mad money show.. and yeah i think ima try that cleaning gutters thing. i love climbing on roofs... but then again, what guy doesn't?

Go be a lube tech at a dealership or oil change shop. That'll give you more car knowledge and a few bucks for your wallet.

I'm going an interview tomorrow at a financial firm. Finding employment is not easy. I wish you the best of luck.
