    Computer fixing/repairing/speeding up/virus removal - If your good with computers I would say this is your best bet at your age if your looking for a good money earner.

    Wow, $500. How did you earn so much? What kind of job was it?

    You could learn HTML and some PHP, rent out a dedicated server and start creating websites for businesses in your area. You'd have to actually walk up and talk to managers to be more direct, tell them that having a website can increase the amount of customers visiting their business and it gives customers more information regarding their business. If they already have a website tell them you can do better then their previous web service comaany by lowering prices, chucking in a free domain name etc. You could even buy xrumer and do some SEO for the sites too.

    That's not really a lot. Assuming he worked 2 weeks that's $6.25/hr if it was one week yea that's a decent amount :p

    At your age you should definately look into PC repair, but take it further, learn PHP and HTML. THIS WILL MAKE YOU MONEY DOWN THE ROAD. I have ADD so I can't focus on programming and learning a language like that. GL
