Need to make some money

So I just recently have gotten my roll down and now I need a boat I'm to young to get a official job and have already made $300 does anyone have any fun ways a 14 year old can make money to get his first boat?

You're never too young to learn to hustle. Go rake yards, or do odd chores for peeps. If you're decent with your hands, find cheap broken stuff on craigslist like weedeaters and snowblowers, fix them and flip for a profit. Talk to neighbors and friends, find out if any of them need help with odd projects around the house. Shovel snow, mow grass, pick rocks in a field. It's a lifelong dream to find the way to make money that's also fun, everything else is a grind. Get grinding.

I also had a real job when I was 14. In a furniture warehouse, but that was in Kansas.

There is some real good info on options for you here:

I don't know where you live, but if firewood in on the menu for heating homes then get in the wood splitting and stacking business.

Good suggestions. My first business was lawnmowing.

During my college years in TN I bought some lawn mowing equipment and printed some letters to leave on doors of yards with high grass and kindly ask for their business.
Don't be afraid to go to people's homes and ask for work. I did just that and if they weren't home I left a nice letter on their door stating I'd be enthusiastic to have their business. People gave me work and they also called the number left in the nice letter. Two years later I scheduled all my yards into two days and kayaked the other five days all summer.

At 14 I bet many homes would let you use their lawn mowers and such.

This thread has lots of good suggestions. If you are willing to go out and ask for work then there will be plenty of folks willing to pay you for a good service.

Good luck.

My son is 13 and works yards. Best advice I gave him to secure a gig is to offer to do the chore and let them name their price After you are done. Work extremely hard with your pants pulled up and loose the ear buds. You might be surprised he routinely ends up with way more than he would have asked for.
