How do you make your money? What do you do? I work at a bike shop during the summer. They have never been that upfront with me on funds I have earned and keep my hours seporate from everyone else. I have a new boss now and I'm not sure If I will be hired again this summer. A few years ago my friend and I came up with an idea to start an outdoor lighting biz. The low 12V tree lighting kind. I have installed 4 systems with up to 30 lights all for my parents though. If you get a rich person and use the nicest lights you can charge up to about $25 per light. And $100 per transformer. So pretty good money for a teenager if you could get a job a week. We didn't do it because we couldn't drive then but now that we are 16 it might be a good job. The only problem is advertising. Flyers don't work that well for such an expensive thing. So I don't know to get the word out. I had an idea to make some products in the mountain bike world. Maybe get a patent but that could take years to get prosessed and to produce. I was now thinking of using ebay to sell custom built PCs. List the computer parts and everything and then if someone bids and wins I would order and build the computer. So I would not be out any money if they didn't sell. My friend from the lighting biz said that his friend tried doing that and only made $50 a computer so thats under $10 an hour. So no good. If I don't get the bike shop job I don't know what I will do for a job. Ill hopefuly just get some job at a market or something. What could I do to make money? Invest in an off set printing press? I guess I would be "making" money then. Oh yeah, whats your job? To anyone that doesn't have a job, I'm sorry.
