I wouldn't think so much about getting a job (at ANY age), think more along the lines of going into business for yourself (at ANY age). If you are truly 14, ask yourself if you can you mow a lawn, type other student's papers, rake leaves, shovel snow, walk dogs, or tutor someone? Can you coach a sport or enter video game tournament that pays money? There are a variety of ways to earn money, think beyond getting a job because at least in the US, most children under the age of 16 cannot get a job but creating your own stream of income via self-employment will put money into your pocket and bank account/piggy bank.
Yes, start your own business! Consider what interests you most, and even if you can't start there, keep it in mind and begin working toward it in some way. Perhaps you need to do simple work to save money toward your main goal, but keep that goal in mind for your future. Doing this does not mean you can't change your path along the way. Just keep the future in view because it will come to you faster than you think!
A formal 'job' at age 14 in California means the child has to have a work permit and the employer must also have a permit to employ a child.
you can earn money by blogging, writing at earning sites, get paid by paypal or bitcoin, join surveys, as long it is not manual work
Begin by checking your state's child labor laws. Many states do not allow you to have a job until the age of 16, there are some, however that allows children to begin work at the age of 14.
Keep in mind that it is usually only fast food restaurants that hire this young, many retail stores will not hire under the age of 18.
Also, during the school year those ages 14-15 are allowed by the law to work only on the weekends.
If the idea is just to make a little pocket money babysitting, dog walking, pet sitting or offering to odd jobs is probably the best way to go.

Just curious because I used to get a job just by walking in but these days I don't even get a return call.
