Alright, so heres the deal. I have a job, an average teenage job. Pay isn't amazing, but I enjoy my job atleast. A friend and I have decided to start saving for something we're really determined to buy. Problem is, this item costs several thousand dollars. While we can afford something decent with just devoting half our paychecks to savings every two weeks, it would still be nice to find other sources of revenue. My friend and I used to be involved in the chainmaille industry until we got real jobs. Towards the end of our "career", we started to break even from all of expenses of wire, tools, etc. We're thinking this might be a good way to make money if we go out to craft fairs and sell jewelry like bracelets and necklaces, and possibly small pieces of armour and dicebags. We could probably move a good amount of inventory. Problem with this is we hardly ever have the time to weave anymore, and our stock is pretty low. I don't want to risk investing the money into the chainmaille business if we're putting it towards our goal. My question to y'all concerns other types of businesses or ways we could make money towards our project. What all would you recommend to a 17 year old in high school whos determined to meet his goal. Keep in mind I already have a real job, and so does my friend. We'd also like to keep this legal. I know there probably aren't very many options out there, but I'm just looking for suggestions to atleast get an idea of where I stand. Thank you all so much. P.S.- Our goal is to buy a Powered Parachute, but I just didn't want to out right say that, for fear I may be judged for my age on the matter. Thank you.
