You can do that by offering a few of the initial workshops for free.

For Kids

The ideas below are simple and will easily suit any teenaged kid. But kids should consult their parents before implementing any of these ways for kids to earn money.

Tutoring is another great money-making idea for a collegian. You can help out your fellow students by tutoring them and making money in the process.

Investing in stocks is seen as a very risky business and I won't deny that. But if you have some amount of money that you can keep in the process, then e-trading is for you.
