how to raise money?

I babysit. I dog sit I charge the familys if there gone $15-$25 dollars per day I may $150.00 dollars one time for two dogs.
So I need some other ideas I make $20.00 a week from my parents. I know I need a job.
I been looking but for right now I am more focused on school Summer 201 I will be working as a Camp Counselor again and by the end of the Summer I will have over 2,000 dollars from that. Less taxes at the of 2010 I will be getting my Tax return from 2010.
Then I should still get my Tax return from 2007
So I will make money off that.
I am probably gonna try and get a job.

I have applied everywhere. I mean everywhere that I can think of in my area. Nothing more then 10 minutes away though.

I really want a new horse or even possibly leasing so I can ride more I was kinda thinking of talking to my Coach about possible working at her barn mucking stalls cleaning the Isle that kinda thing does that sound ok?

Ohh I am gonna be raking leaves for my Neighbor I was thinking of doing that. As well I am thinking me and my boyfriend can do that. Since It should not be a 1 person job.

I will not mowe lawns.
I will not paint I am not good at that kinda stuff. I am mostly good with kids animals etc. ;)

Well here a few ideas.
1.If you have a horse and a trailer. Go somewhere like park and put a sign up 10 dollars, horse rides. Walks the kids around for awhile then BAM you got 10 bucks.

2.Car wash, (Yeah old school) go somewhere and put a sign up and how much it cost and wash a car. They by the end of the day you should have about 20 bucks.

3.Dog wash, groom a dog for money.

There are a few ideas, I hope I helped.

Problem with the first one is liabilility issues... You will be sued if a person is hurt... Secondly you might be stopped before you start many "parks" dont premit horses.

Live to ride. Ride to live.

Dog grooming is not just an easy thing to do. Plus you have the liability if you injure the dog while grooming, clipping, etc. It takes years to learn to groom a dog properly.
Maybe a dog wash? A wading pool, a hose and shampoo.. that would be easy

True... If you don't mind me asking, why do you need money?
Yeah I meant a simple dog wash. I did lawns for money....
What about house cleaning? I know someone how made that a job.

I am 21.. I need money so I can get stuff that I need so I have money to raise so I can eventually get another horse. I dunno I can't even clean my own room I dont think house cleaning is something I can do.

But I need a job. I had an interview for summer camp next summer :) so hopefully I get a job there but for now I need something to make some money to save up so I can save for a horse.

Use the internet! Make horse-costume pieces like unicorn horns -- you cannot believe the difficulty I had finding a nice unicorn costume horn for my horse!

If you are crafty at all, set up an account on Etsy and prey off the non-creative non-artist folks like me

I thought you just got a horse? Am I mistaken?

Anyway, put in job applications for all the fast-food joints, restaurants, grocery stores and retail stores in town. Basically just anywhere and everywhere that might be hiring. You are plenty old enough to find yourself a real job.

BTW, there are plenty of places these days that do online applications (McD onalds, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, etc.)...so it's super easy to apply.

Good luck, I hope you find employment soon.

Edited to add that I found your post about the horse you just got...did I miss something

Since I live at home. My mom and Dad work full time I goto school full time.

Its very hard to find a job that I am capable of doing. I won't work at groccery stores because how late they work I can't work over night shifts I called Pets mart and they need someone to do over night 3 times a week I can't do that.

No I didn't just get a horse. She was already at my Grandpas farm but he is giving her to me when I move out to the country with my folks who are letting me stay in a guest house. But that isnt until after we move soo..and sell our house..

I am getting a already trained horse a horse that can do jumping and stuff this filly my grandpa got me is a qh filly... I am gonna be training her as a western horse maybe some small english stuff but my boyfriend will be riding her mostly.

I been applying everywhere but the thing is. Because I have school my parents want my focus on my school and its more important for me so they just want me to do stuff to make some money so im not broke. lol.
