Jobs for Kids - 10 Ways Your Kids Can Earn Dough Today

Jobs for Kids - 10 Ways Your Kids Can Earn Dough Today

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were listening to a podcast about personal investing. We are small business owners, and probably always will be. My guy has an entrepreneur's spirit, and dreams daily about "what's next." My freelancing career has surprised me as well, going from a side hustle to a legitimate thing, so I suppose we both have the bug. 

We listen to music and personal investing podcasts constantly around here, because why not? We're always on the move, so can't devote a ton of time reading books (or even blogs!) although those would be preferable. 

On this particular episode, a guest named Natali Morris was discussing how to turn regular household expenditures (and chores) into money-making endeavors. Interesting, right? She talked about how any tasks kids can do for the family business - totally assuming everyone has a family business - can be paid for, but instead of going into a piggy bank, straight into a 401(k). This had out interest from the beginning. No pun intended. 

Natali's delivery style is my favorite. She speaks like many men in that she gets to the friggin' point. And in this case, her point was to get your kids help, and pay them in a tax-free way. 

It reminded me of a piece I did for nonprofit CESI Solutions, wherein I outlined 10 creative things reader's kids could do to bring in case for whatever - extracurricular activities, fancy shoes, more business venture, or sure, retirement. 

Are you excited to see the final product? I'm delighted to share it with you. Here it is. Jobs for Kids - 10 Ways Your Kids Can Earn Dough Today. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed crafting it. 

P.S. - If I could offer a bit of advice to other freelance writers, it is - and you could probably se this coming - consume smart media. Use that same creativity that makes you a good wordsmith and put it to work for you to find creative ways to consume smart media. Business audio books, financial podcasts, and even webinars for writers can be listened to while you do household chores or even while you do administrative tasks for business.
