Anything special you would like to share? I sold lemonade, did car washes, helped with garage sales, babysat. What did you do? Was it your idea or your parents? How old were you?

oh i babysat tons of my young life. all my weekends were quite boring til i was able to date. then i remember as a kid, we would sell christmas cards from door to door. That would not be seen anymore! in the summer, my friends and i would sell lemonade, and it was a whole 2 cents a glass full... what a lot of money we made!

I received an allowance until I was old enough to babysit. Then all my money came from babysitting and I stashed a lot of it away. Then when I became of age to work I worked at my father's company, first stuffing envelopes, then wrapping backstock, and then reception relief. And some friends and I did inventory over March Break. I don't remember doing anything else to earn money until I got out of school and got a job as a secretary.

Well when I was younger, I shoveled snow, cleaned yards for my older neighbors, went to the store, packed bags, picked blueberries, sold candy. It was all my idea and I was 9 when I started.
