Can You Make Money Online At Any Age?
There Is No Minimum Age To Make Money Online
More and more people are working online these days, and as you can imagine, it’s going to be the younger generation leading the pack. Have you seen how many young people are creating viral videos and becoming social media superstars? If you don’t think they’re making money, think again. Not all of them are of course, but there are some prominent young video makers out there these days.
It’s going to be interesting to see how millennials continue to shape the market and what jobs are available online. Now, before you dismiss what I have to say or think that this trend is still too far away in the future, what you’re reading is written by a person that works solely online. I’m from Generation X, which means I’m not a millennial. I’m an online content writer.
I can tell you that yes, most jobs as you think of them are going to require that someone be 18 or older to work online. However, the job market is changing, and the ways you make money online are quite innovative. Moreover, the online world is anonymous in many ways. Payment processing is much easier, via Paypal, and so people under the age of 18 are finding ways to make money online.
In fact, there is no minimum age limit when it comes to making money online. All you need is an innovative idea. Ask yourself one question: Who is more likely to come up with an innovative idea? These millennials were born into this type of technology and have grown up with it, and not only that, but right now, they are the ones with the most time on their hands, besides the retiring baby boomer generation.
To boot, there are now more millennials than baby boomers, which is not really a surprise. Do you make money online? If not, you might want to start exploring how you can do just that. If you have a job, great, because you can make extra income in your spare time. Not everything online is a business opportunity either, which means you can sometimes simply get to work for spare cash.
There are even sites that will let you stream videos and do all kinds of different little tasks to earn money. Some are going to require you to be a certain age, sure. I’m definitely not suggesting you do anything illegal, but there are all kinds of work opportunities out there. Get to browsing and see what you can find.
I can tell you that I got started years ago writing online as a career. Some of my writer friends have talked about their kids possibly wanting to break into the business. I’m not sure if they have or not, but it’s an interesting thought. Of course, you do have to be a good writer!
What is your niche? How would you like to earn money online? Some of these kids are setting up websites and capitalizing on all kinds of different business niches. It could be you!
