There’s something to do around here

-A A +A
By The Staff

All over young people say the same thing, whether they live in a big city or a small town: “There’s nothing to do around here”.

When I was a teenager I said that of my town in New Jersey. Well, I have an answer for that dilemma; get a job or better yet be creative and develop your own job.

There are many reasons to be your own boss. You can establish your own schedule, work when you want and as hard as you want. Of course, the theory is if you do work long and hard you will reap great rewards.

You can maximize your potential and take ownership of your success or failure. Being in business for yourself in not for everyone but what better way to find out than to try it as a summer job while you are young.

In Los Alamos there are so many services left untapped that I am positive a young person with energy and a good idea can “make it.”   

Start by surveying adults and peers as to what they might need and what they would be willing to pay a service provider. Or think of something you would like to do and then see if there is a need.

Either way I’m sure you’ll get lot’s of ideas. Off the top of my head, things that immediately come to mind are pet sitting, house sitting, yard care, computer maintenance, tutoring and good music lessons.
