Default Re: make money online

Definitely look for a job! Keep applying, and go back! Don't just forget it if they don't call, go back and ask if they're hiring yet, or if they've looked at your application. It's always worked for me. If you know someone working somewhere, they may be able to help you get in. Even if it's a lousy job, it's a start. Take whatever you can get, and work hard at it.

I'm 18, and I'm on my fifth job. I've been working since I was 11, and I've never been fired, just always trying to "move up" a little. And typically had at least 2 jobs at a time. Started as a paper boy, then worked at a tree farm my friend's dad owns, then went to McDonalds when I turned 16, then Home Depot, and now full-time at Walmart Distribution, and I'm making $16.80 an hour, will be $17.30 in 2 weeks when I get a raise. Not bad for being 18. Most kids my age around here either don't work and have mommy and daddy buy all their stuff, or make minimum wage and call out once a week or something. I've worked hard and paid for all of the thousands of dollars of equipment I've had, aside from the occasional Christmas/birthday present (first acoustic guitar, talkbox, guitar strings, GC gift card).

Heck, even this week I went back over to McDonalds and I'm gonna work there again for maybe 10-12 hours a week on top of my full-time job, figured I could use some extra money for cymbals and stuff I want :)
