I was always that kid who wanted to make her own money. Why? Because I wanted to spend my way. In high school, I took a job at TCBY because I loved the product and I figured I could get some free froyo. But then I had to clean out the hot dog stand. Ewww. That was the end for me. I then hopped over to a Hallmark store, which, of course, was heaven for me. I'd spend hours reading sappy cards.
These days, it might not be so simple finding a summer gig for teens It kills me when people thinking they need to wait to be given a job. You can make money on your own! Same goes for teens.
Today I had the honor of being on NBC's Six in the Mix here in Miami. Roxanne Vargas and I talked about summer jobs teens can do from the comfort of their own home. And guess what? The stuff you can do from home can be activities that you love and make you money.
Watch my segment, and next time you see a younger version of yourself, inspire her to find her calling, live her purpose, and believe she can make a life doing it.
Much love to you always!
PS - For fun, tell me about your summer job growing up!
