Making a good amount of money at a young age is not an easy task. Yes, some teenagers get lucky when they get jobs of waiters or clerks, but some cannot even get that. Most jobs require experience, a complete education, proper transportation and a mature age therefore, it is hard for these youngsters to make minimum wage. Because of these restrictions that are put on the teenagers, it promotes them to get creative so they can understand the value of money and earning at a young age. However, Willow Tufano did not let these restrictions stop her from earning by herself!
Believe it or not, there are still kids that are ambitious and know exactly what they want. Yes, the teen ages may seem like an age when the kids should "learn about life" and all, but is it not better if the child has an understanding of the basic needs and survival tips?
Do you know what human necessities are? apart from food, water and oxygen, the next BIG necessity is a shelter. A place where you can live because living on the streets is not reliable or safe. Unfortunately, even though a house is a necessity, they are damn expensive when purchasing.
