Step 1: Hard Labor

Picture of Hard Labor
We can't proclaim to give a list of ways to make money as a teen unless we check off all the old standbys.

You could...

  • Mow lawns
  • Shovel snow
  • Do basic landscaping, such as trimming things (that aren't grass)
  • Deliver papers
  • Clear gutters
  • Rake leaves
  • Dig ditches
  • Clean cars
  • Clean windows
  • Housework (Dusting, Hoovering, Sweeping)

These are great, but some people want to avoid these just because you need to know people generally to make these work. That's where the other steps come in.

I want to introduce you with a site where you can earn money. They are selling
games, and your job is to help them.All
you need to do is register
and start sharing your refferal link to your gamers friends who buy games and
dont know that this site have extremely sales for many games, or to a
completely strangers on forums, facebook, twitter, chats,... You need to have
some good niche about selling games like: Weekly sale, amazing cheap games, can
you find cheaper fifa 14? look here... and so on. At the start you need to be
active so you get many people in your team, this mean they buy or join after
you and if they share this site too, you get some money of them too. And this
is what now happened to me, i was sharing this site for 2 weeks and now i only
sit down and watch how money comes. Your balance get‘s bigger and bigger every
day. So this is a life time opportunity if you want to get fast money easy.

im pretty sure putting stuff in people's mailboxes is illegal now...

most restaurants have community boards where you can post flyers for free. just put what area you are servicing and your ready!

=SMART= (author)  MattandJora5 years ago
well give it to people in the street then!
No, its illegal to put something in someone's mailbox because it confuses the Postal Service. So, go ahead, put it behind their mailbox (If it's on a wall) or on the cheap plastic thing. Its perfectly legal for that. Just DON'T put anything IN the mailbox, it will look like mail. You will probably tick off the mailman and whatever you do DON'T TICK OFF THE MAILMAN, he has more power over your life than you think. (Like bills mysteriously being "lost" in the mail) lol
Wow, excuse me, but, are your mailmen stupid? I would be very surprised if a mailman (or woman, whatever that's just the word I use) was confused by finding something already in your mailbox. Just, wow. Biggest issue with Canada Post is sometimes having to give a letter to a neighbour, Putting stuff in people's mailboxes is illegal? Man, I'm glad no one actually cares what's in their mailbox. How hard is "Oh, a flyer. Hmm, nope" *trash*. NOT HARD.
it is wich is why you leave it on there doorstep lol

My Likes:
Cashcrate is my favorite site and the one that I’ve received the most checks from. I’ve been doing it for about a year now and honestly have never had a problem with it. Cashcrate is one of the most popular GPT sites having 990,000+ members. First of all it’s free to sign up and it’s been around for years. Cashcrate has many types of offers that you can complete for money. There is an entire section of absolutely free offers. This means you fill out surveys and get paid. Simple as that.

Their referral system is great too. When you sign up a person you earn 20% of your level 1 referrals. If you can collect quite a few referrals, that can turn into some excellent income from others doing work! Cashcrate not only pays you 20% of your level one referrals, but they implement a 2 level referral system. That means anyone who signs up under your referrals, you will also earn 10% of their earnings. When a referral gets to the $10 minimum you get an automatic $3 bonus! Not only can you earn all that money, but once you get more referrals, your referral percentage increase up to 30%. This is why Cash crate is the best GPT site. Your earning potential is unlimited.

My Dislikes:
If you live outside the US, Canada or UK you won’t have many offers.

How does $20,000 in two weeks sound? It IS possible...

Maybe you have seen an older version of this $5 letter going around,

but WHAT IF you haven't seen this NEWEST version??

WHAT IF you don't SAVE THIS LETTER...then the idea has

time to sink in and you realize THIS VERSION is SIMPLE,


Finally a proven method of making extra money on line!


WHAT IF I share with you a way to make some fast and easy cash, using

a copy of this letter and the simplest Internet Payment System around?

You have most likely seen or heard about

"The Letter" $5.00 program that was recently televised

on 20/20, OPRAH WINFREY, and an article published in the Wall Street

Journal on 6/16/2006. If not, here it is!!

WHAT IF it took only a half hour to set it up?





Please read all of this, right to the very last sentence.

If you don't have time now, then SAVE THIS LETTER, and read it later.

Follow the directions below and in two weeks you'll have up to

$20000.00 in your PayPal account. There is a very high rate of

participation in the program because of its low investment and high

rate of return. Just $5.00 to one person!


If you are a skeptic and don't think the program will work, I urge

you to give it a try anyway! It REALLY WORKS! Why do you

think so many people are promoting it ?

LOOK AT IT THIS WAY: If the Program is a total failure for you and you

never get even $1.00 in return, your total loss will

be the $5.00! If you are not yet a paypal member, there is no risk at

all!!! If the Program is only moderately successful for

you, your PayPal account will have several hundred dollars deposited

into it within the next few days! If you actively

participate in the Program, you could have up to $20,000.00 in your

PayPal account within two weeks!

Now let me tell you the simple details.

Getting Started!!

If you're not already a user of PayPal, the very first thing you need

to do is go to PayPal and sign up. It takes two minutes

and Pay Pal will deposit $5.00 in your account just for becoming a

member. That makes this program's total cost $0!!! Follow

this link to open your PayPal account:

Now log into your PayPal account, and send the PayPal account of the

person listed in Position 1 $5.00 PayPal will ask you to

select type. (Select "service" and put "$5.00 donation" for

subject.) When person in Position 1 receives notification of your

payment, you can simply copy this page and change the names in

position #1 & #2 & #3 as instructed. Remember, only the person

in Position 1 on the list gets your $5.00 donation. Send them a

donation then remove #1PayPal account from the list. Move the

other two accounts up & add your Paypal account to #3 position. After

you have retyped the names in the new order,

IMMEDIATELY send the revised message to as many people as possible.

PROMOTE! PROMOTE! The more you promote the Program, the

more you will receive in donations!! That's all there is to it.

When your name reaches Position 1 (usually in less than a week) it

will be your turn to receive the cash. $5.00 will be sent

to your PayPal account by people just like you who are willing to send

$5.00 donation and receive up to $20,000 in less than

two weeks. Because there are only (3) names on the list you can

anticipate 80% of your cash within two weeks.

Anytime you find yourself short on cash just take out your $5.00

donation program and send it to 50 prospects. Imagine if you

sent it to 100 or even more. Most people spend more than $5 on the

lottery every week with no real hope of ever winning.





Integrity and honesty make this plan work.

Follow the simple instructions, and above all, PLEASE

PLAY FAIR. That's the key to this program's success.

Your name must run the full gamut on the list to produce

the end results. Sneaking your name higher up on the list

WILL NOT produce the results you think, and it only cheats

the other people who have worked hard and have earned the

right to be there. So please, play by the rules and the

$$$ will come to you!



HOW TO POST TO NEWS GROUPS?Use Netscape or Internet Explorer and try searching for variousnewsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.)

Log on any search engine like,,,, etc.,

then search with the subject "millionaire message board; or;

money making message board; or; employment message board;

or making discussions; or ''money making forum; or; business message board; etc.You will find thousands &thousands of message boards.Click on them one by one and you will find the option 'post a new message'.

Then Post this article as a 'new message' by highlighting the text of this letter

and selecting copy then paste from the edit menu.

Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll

through the list of postings in a particular group, click the post message button.

You're done with your first one! It only takes about 60 seconds to complete

postings on message boards after you catch on.

When you get the money please give 25% to charity please.


Together we will prosper.

Participants who actively promote this program will average between $8000

and $12000 and receive the donations within two weeks.

This is not a chain letter. You are simply making a donation of $5.00

to another person. The Program does not violate title

18 section 1302 of the Postal and lottery code.

Remember -TIME is of the essence. YOU can choose to live

Paycheck-to-Paycheck or live FREE from FINANCIAL BONDAGE. Become a

part of the donation program and help people help people.

This program is about helping each other!

GOOD LUCK!!!! God Bless "Pay It Forward"

I finally decided to read one of these articles in an internet newsgroup describing how to make $50,000.00 in only one month from a $5.00 investment.

Of course I thought this was ridiculous ,or some type of pyramid. I talked it over with my family, an attorney, and my friends, and they all agreed it was some sort of scam. I hate scams because usually someone gets burned, and I didn't want it to be me! I blew it off for a few weeks then saw another one in a newsgroup I go to a lot and thought, "Maybe this is legitimate!". Besides, what’s $5.00

Well, two weeks later, I began receiving money in the mail! I couldn't believe it! Not just a little , I mean big bucks! At first only a few hundred dollars, then a week later, a couple of thousand , then BOOM . By the end of the fourth week , I had received nearly $47,000.00. It came from all over the world. And every bit of it perfectly legal and on the up and up. I've been able to pay off all my bills and still had enough left over for a nice vacation for me and my family.

Not only does it work for me, it works for other folks as well. Markus Valppu says he made $57,883 in four weeks. Dave Manning claims he made $53,664 in the same amount of time. Dan Shepstone says it was only $17,000 for him. Do I know these folks? No, but when I read how they say they did it, it made sense to me. Enough sense that I'm taking a similar chance with $5 of my own money.
Not a big chance, I admit--but one with incredible potential, because $5 is all anyone ever invests in this system. Period. That's all Markus, Dave, or Dan invested, yet their $5 netted them tens of thousands
of dollars each, in a safe, legal, completely legitimate way. Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:


Invest your $5 by writing your name and address on five separate pieces of paper along with the words:
(In this way, you're not just sending a dollar to someone; you're paying for a legitimate service.) Fold a $1 bill, money order, or bank note inside each paper, and mail them by standard U. S. Mail to the following five addresses:

1)- Heath Ward P.O. Box 2027 Dodge City, KS 67801

2)- Matthew Kulbacki 1025 12th Street Golden, CO, USA 80401

3)- Nikki Robinson 2324 Frederick Place Valdosta, GA 31602

4)- Ross O’Brien 1040 Pine Lane Lafayette, CA 94549

5)-Blaec Blain 4525 North Peachtree Road, GA 30338


Now remove the top name from the list, and move the other names up. This way, #5 becomes #4 and so on. Put your name in as the fifth one on the list.


Post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. There are at least 17000 newsgroups at any given moment in time. Try posting to as many newsgroups as you can. Remember the more groups you post to, the more people will see your article and send you cash!


You are now in business for yourself, and should start seeing returns within 7 to 14 days! Remember, the internet is new and huge. There is no way you can lose.

Now here is how and why this system works:

Out of every block of 200 posts I made, I got back 5 responses. Yes, that’s right, only 5. You make $5.00 in cash, not checks or money orders, but real cash with your name at #5.

Each additional person who sent you $1.00 now also makes 200 additional postings with your name at #4, 1000 postings. On average then, 50 people will send you $1.00 with your name at #4,....$50.00 in your pocket!

Now these 50 new people will make 200 postings each with your name at #3 or 10,000 postings. Average return, 500 people= $500. They make 200 postings each with your name at #2= 100,000 postings=5000 returns at $1.00 each=$5,000.00 in cash!

Finally, 5,000 people make 200 postings each with your name at #1 and you get a return of $50,000 before your name drops off the list. And that's only if everyone down the line makes only 200 postings each! Your total income for this one cycle is $55,000.

From time to time when you see your name is no longer on the list, you take the latest posting you can find and start all over again.

The end result depends on you. You must follow through and repost this article everywhere you can think of. The more postings you make, the more cash ends up in your mailbox. It's too easy and too cheap to pass up!!!

So that’s it. Pretty simple sounding stuff, huh? But believe me, it works.

If you're really not sure or still think this can't be for real, then don't do it. But please print this article and pass it along to someone you know who really needs the money, and see what happens.
