While your youth is a time to have fun and enjoy life, it is also a time to learn the value of work and ambition. The Bible has much to say about the importance of working diligently.

Here are six careers that you can embark on right now:
  1. Newspaper business. Throw a paper route, and discover the satisfaction of getting a job done early.
  2. Investment broker. There are companies that will take investment capital of just $50. Learn how the market works, and start investing a little at a time.
  3. Graphic arts. If you have a bent for drawing and art, offer your assistance to those in need now. I know 14 and 15 year olds who design logos and Web sites for companies and churches.
  4. Film and video production. With an inexpensive camera and some software you can be in the "movie" biz. My son began to be paid for his projects when he was just 15 years old.
  5. Lawn care. If you have a mower and a weed-eater, distribute flyers in your neighborhood and sign accounts to cut and trim grass after school and all summer.
  6. Child Care. Make yourself available to families for quality baby-sitting services. Be a good one, because they are hard to come by!
