How to make money has been a recurring question we’ve all asked ourselves at some point in time. This article though, is one for my fellow young brothers because I know sometimes your parents’ allowance may not be enough to fund our stupid desires lol.

On a serious note though, it’s now more expensive to be a teenager than it was back in the day. 

Think about it, we have all these electronic devices and platforms to maintain and upkeep. We have all these social events that require us stepping out in the latest fashion trends.

We even have entertainment systems like PlayStations which come with ongoing costs. Whether you partake in all of these activities or just one they all come at a cost.

Some of which might seem ridiculous to our parents because they are generationally distant. So as teenagers we sometimes have to kiss our desires goodbye.

Unless! We can find a way to make money as teenagers. The fact that you clicked on this article means that you have the desire to increase your income as an adolescent.

Luckily for you, you’ve come to the right place!


Before we even get into all the paper chasing stuff. I need you guys to evaluate your intentions behind this financial walk.

Notice all the reasons I listed above for wanting to make money as a teenager were all noble and legitimate reasons. As young brothers coming up I need you guys to adopt the alpha mindset.

Your reason for attempting to make more money shouldn’t be to buy luxuries or accessories to make you fit into the crowd. As an alpha male it’s important that you value yourself and feel valuable as such. 

No extra money, pair of sneakers or device should add or minus any value from you. As an alpha male you should always aim to be secure and confident in your genuine self.

If hanging with the crowd requires any materialistic prerequisites (which is low value) and that’s your motive to earn more cash, you should probably click off this blog. 

As an alpha male you are valuable on a primal level, therefore any other enhancements aren’t required to increase your value. 


I am very well aware of how big this point in your life seems and exactly how important it is to have a good time growing up. 

However it will be irresponsible of me on this platform to encourage you guys to spree out in your youth without investing in yourself.

Teenagers today generally make very poor investment and financial decisions. Depending on your background this can be quite detrimental.

In fact, according to teens.lovetoknow.com over 50% of their allowance is spent on junk food and clothing. The article also went on to explain that teenagers spend just under $5,500 yearly. 

These statistics show that teenagers are generally irresponsible with their money. I blame blue pill social constructs like “enjoy your youth”. 

This can be very destructive advice that brainwash teenagers into living for the moment and neglecting potential adverse consequences in the future. 

So before you focus on making more money as a teenager, put more emphasis into retaining and managing money in your youth as well. 


Now that I’ve been a responsible big brother and ensure that you guys have the right mindset going into this thing.

I’m now going to give you guys a number of ways in which you can make money as a teenager. 

Before I get into the list however, I first want to preface this blog by saying; all but one of the following methods I’m about to list has all been tried, tested and approved by yours truly.

So I’m not just coming from a place of research and information when I suggest these but more importantly, a place of experience.

Now that we got the memo, I bring to you young brothers a list of 7 WAYS TO MAKE MONEY AS A TEENAGER.

1.Learn a Profitable Skill

I am a big advocate of learning a skill that’s practical and applicable for the modern market. This isn’t only a concept younger men should understand, but all men in general.

It’s important as an alpha male to have a command of income and having a profitable skill allows for that.

When it comes to making money as a teenager, having a profitable skill is so key. This is a tool that you can use as long as you live once you master it. 

Not to mention, profitable skills can be scaled tremendously. From traditional trades like plumbing and electrical work, to digital skills like graphic design and programming. 

The range of skills you can tap into is abundant. My advice is to grab on to one of them and master it while you have youth on your side. 

These skills can be used to make money as a teenager but more importantly it makes you as an individual more valuable

2.Buy and Sell Items For Profit

Buying and selling items for profit is a no brainer if you aim to make money as a teenager. It requires no non financial investment, which means little to no time is spent on gathering your commodity for leveraging.

It’s simple, as complex as it gets. Look for a feasible and marketable product, let’s say a white leather sneakers. Buy them wholesale so that the unit cost can decrease.

Put a profit mark up on each sneaker and sell them for profit. It’s that simple.

Obviously there are many other intricacies involved in the selling process, such as stock management, marketing, closing sales, etc. 

Through learned experience, you will overtime get better at all of the traits required to be a successful entrepreneur

3.Have a Thrift Sale

According to definitions.net, a thrift or garage sale is a scheduled event for the sale of slightly used and unwanted goods by private entities. 

Let’s face it, we all have hundreds or probably thousands of dollars worth in thrift items laying around in our house. Gathering these used items and selling them is a great way to make money as a teenager. 

I task you to look for all items and I mean ALL items that are considered thrift items. 

Those soccer boots you haven’t used since you got kicked off your high school team? Sell em.

Those old textbooks you don’t need anymore? Sell em.

Those outdated dusty gaming systems you got under your bed? Sell em. All it takes is a change of perspective and mindset to make money as a teenager.

4.Become an Affiliate 

Affiliate sales is one of the best hustles you can partake in to make money. This is because the risk factor is super low.

For those who don’t know what affiliate marketing is, it’s basically the sale of someone else’s products for a commission on each sale.

The beauty about this is you don’t have to bare the risk of purchasing, storing and processing the product. Your parent company would do all of this for you. 

You simply just get people to buy the product and collect a percentage commission. This is especially inviting for you young boys with lots of followers on social media.

Like bro, stop flexing your 50k followers to feel ‘popular’ and start using your platform for making money instead. There are many affiliate programs out there such as Amazon FBA and ClickBank. 

5.Start a Youtube Channel

As you have a lot of free time and little responsibility as a teenager, a Youtube channel can be a quite feasible option when it comes to making money.

A Youtube channel requires a lot of time investment, so be prepared to put in a lot of work before seeing sustainable growth and results. 

My best advice is to start a channel related to your interests. For example if you love sports, start a Youtube channel talking about sports media or technicalities in the sport. 

This way you can always use your passion as a driver to push you through the dog days. 

The fruits of your labor however can be quite rewarding, according to iwillteachyoutoberich.com the average successful YouTuber makes about $60,000 per year.

6.Grow an Instagram Theme Page

Let’s face it, the most popular Social media platform among teenagers today is Instagram.

Our phones are always in our hands using this damn app. It’s shocking just how much people aren’t aware of monetizing Instagram.

If you’re interested in making money as a teenager, especially if you have lots of followers. Monetizing a theme page on Instagram is your best bet.

There are many ways you can use Instagram to make money for a couple hundred or even thousands a month. Some methods include; selling a big theme page, selling shoutouts, advertising, sponsorships, etc.

In fact we have a detailed blog on how exactly to make money using Instagram here. So check that out after you’re done with this one. 

7.Start a Blog 

Last on the list we have blogging, this can be a very lucrative model you can get into. If you’re a teenager with a lot of time, blogging can definitely be a great option for making money.

For those who don’t know what blogging is, it’s basically writing content on a particular topic on a website for people to view and use for various purposes. For example, this article you’re currently reading is a blog. 

Blogging however, like YouTube, requires a lot of time investment. So if you’re in it to make a quick buck, you definitely shouldn’t try it out.

Like YouTube I advise you to blog about something you’re passionate about, because you’ll need that passion to carry you through the days you don’t feel like it.

Blogging can be very financially rewarding with average bloggers earnings ranging from $35,000 to $200,000 bucks yearly.
