How Old Do I have to Be to Make Dough?

    I recently joined hubpages, hoping to take advantage of my skills as a writer to make me a few extra bucks this summer to pay off my car. My other sources of income will be tutoring, babysitting, and general yardwork, and I thought this might be a good place to go to accelerate things. I am 15 however, and it looks like I have to be 18 to sign up for Google Adsense... is there another route I should take and still be able to make some money? should I just wait a few years? Should I sign up through my mom and transfer my earnings from her bank to mine?

    Your help is much appreciated!

      I think you have to be 18 to join hubpages also. Get your mom to sign up instead and then she can get an adsesnse account. I don't think anyone will check who is doing the writing. Shouldn't you be out finding out about girls or something?

      And where exactly do you live that allows you to buy a car on credit at 15 years old?

    Whether or not your mother were to open an account in her name and let you write, I believe that Helium has a section just for teens (and if you write well and can get a few "writing stars" you could earn from writing there too).  There's also getting paid (through PayPal) by "paid posting" sites.

    Just read your first hub. It's a great piece. Work with your Mom to stay here and make money. You have a wonderful future here.

    (I'm kinda curious about the car thing as well)

    Well I struck up a deal with my parents - they matched whatever money I raised to buy a car. So I worked and worked and worked... for the last ten years. I managed to save up enough to buy a 9,000 dollar car (fell a thousand short.) I cant keep the car unless I make up that extra money. (It's a '73 Camaro in case you're wondering. Yellow with black racing stripes, looks jsut like the one in transformers. Not beat up though. It's really sweet.)

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll go find my mom right now.

      So you struck this deal at 5 years old? Good for you - you will go far. Why you would want a piece of shit like that is beyond me though. lol
