How Kids Can Make Money:
Car Wash

Kids can advertise their services to their neighbors to begin building up their customers. They will have to make sure their prices are lower than average car washes. I would suggest $5 for a regular wash and $10 for a wash and wax. If they would like the full service (car wash, wax, and vacuum), then they could charge $15. I think this would cover their expenses and net them a profit.


Thanks, Shamari! This is a great suggestion, and all your points about advertising and pricing are exactly on point. This is true whether you're a kid trying to make money or a teen with a great business idea - and no matter what that idea may be.
