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.


So was I, but more or less did that as a hobby. These days, high-tech companies want seasoned programmers in Web applications and so those proficient in AJAX, Ruby on Rails, Python, etc. are in demand. I think the earlier you start programming (especially learning the mathematical logic behind it) the better your knowledge base will become entering the real world, as long as you have the drive and passion for it.

As for getting rich quick at your age, I suppose lawn mowing is the way to go or being an errand boy for your neighbors, I reckon. Or you can become one of those 14-year olds who have a constant drive for world domination and create the next best super-application that will pwn Microsoft and Google. I guess at your age, it's a great time to explore an interest, get good at it, and who knows, you can make money off of it. When you reach working age, who knows if you'll have the time to do a side venture on something you enjoy? Many people don't.

you can probably get a job at a deli, corner store, etc... stocking shelves, deliveries, etc..im not sure how it is around there, but here in the city (philly), there are a ton of little jobs you can do. newspaper route, helping at the neighborhood athletic club lining bases, gathering equipment, etc..?

Online poker! If you start now you'll be a shark by the time you're 21 and able to actually play in brick & mortar casinos! ;D ;7

ding ding ding...keep playing. teach your friends how to play. start playing tournaments or cash games for like $1 a piece. when everyone starts getting confidence, you can step up the stakes. ;D

Dude, money is overrated, at least in terms of the actual bills, nowadays with the internet all you need is a credit card # and you're golden.

Lol, actually when I was younger I did that to an extent. I taught my friends a bunch of poker games, playing for nothing, just using a set # of chips. Then eventually we started to play for money, and what do you know, all of a sudden I got a lot better at these games and eventually they wouldn't play poker with me anymore... ;7

To be clear though, I had no intention of actually hustling them, just eventually your friends will build up enough confidence to want to play for money themselves, and coincidentally I tend to play a lot more serious when there was dough on the line.
