I have a 14 year old. He's mowing lawns. You'll have a hard time making more money doing anything else, people make a living doing that. If that's something you enjoy, think about expanding into other areas. Definitely bundle edging and blowing with your mowing. Most people that don't mow for themselves would also likely hire you to pull weeds, spread mulch, plant bushes, etc. The BIG money is in landscape design. If you're artistic at all pick up a book down at Lowe's and learn how to professionally landscape a yard. Then you can not just do the work they tell you to do, but help them design something that makes their house look better. Trying to get one of my kids to do that for me....

But you said quick money. So if you're not thinking career in landscaping, you might sell some things on eBay or craigslist. You could make even more money selling all your dad's stuff on eBay.

Just walk from house to house in your neighborhood and ask if you can mow their lawn. I'm sure there will be a lot of people willing to have you do that ;D

Yeah it's not very exciting, but you can make some good money through that.

You're referring to a lemonade stand correct? :D

Actually, I used to have lemonade stands when I was younger. I used to charge about 25 cents for a cup and would make about 5 dollars at the end of the day. I thought that was cool back then but I guess the lemonade business isn't as lucrative as I once thought.

Buy some polo shirts, shoot them full of holes, then sell them online for $100. I have no idea who would buy them though.

When I was 14, I was a web designer and programmer. Too bad the dot com era died when the bubble burst. These days, there isn't much you can do at 14 to make quality. My cousin, he did work in data entry when he was 14 but he worked under his dad's information sent in to the company on a computer application.
