Excerpt from Lesson:

Why Should I Earn Money?

As you get older, you’ll have more freedom to spend more money on your own.  The problem is you might not have that money to spend.  Your parents might give you an allowance, but you might want to have more spending money.  You might also want to save to buy a more expensive item, so earning some extra money can help jump start your savings.

How Can I Earn Money?

There are many things you can do to earn money.  The key, however, is finding the things that appeal to your likes and interests.  If you don’t really like dogs, you probably should not start a dog walking business even if your best friend makes a lot of money doing it in her neighborhood.
