Hey guys, mid summer I started reading a lot of books about businesses, money and finances. I don't know how I got this idea (because i was never a fan of reading books, i would go to the gym, play video games with my friends...), but I am really glad i did. I formed a new mindset which allows me to see more stuff in everyday life and school which i would have never noticed in the first place. Now writing this, I remembered why I actually started reading books, it may seem a little different from others, but this is how: I live with my mother and father, my brother finished college and is working 200 km from home. I was mowing the lawn and thinking, who is gonna help my dad mow the lawn when i move out to study or work, because it takes me about 4 hours to mow the entire lawn around our house. So that's when it finally came to me, I need to start reading books about how do I start my business and all that stuff, so I could get money and buy my dad ( I don't know how it's called in english I think it's called) Lawnmower tractor/ Lawn tractor. Basically I started this journey for my family, cause I really wanna give back to them in the future. I read 4 books which all had a lot in common (XXI business,. Rich Dad Poor Dad...) and now i have about 50 pages of Millionaires Fastlane left. After reading this book (I read about 20-30 pages in 1 or 2 days) i get very hyped up and motivated to finally do something, but I put the book down and don't know where to start. I start thinking of dropshipping, photoshop designing, video editing, but nope, I feel like that's not what the book is telling me to do. But basically what I am trying to ask for anyone reading this post, what hobbies/skills do you recommend me to start learning that would be in demand and earn me a buck or two after learning that skill for a while, because I want to settle on one skill to start learning that would help me get income, but I don't know what skill should i start. Recommend me any skill/hobbie which you think would be good for a teenager to learn in 2020. Thank you!

People will probably tell you sales, which is a good advice.

It depends on the kind of business you want to pursue. If you are into online stuff, I'd learn how to code. You'll be able to prototype stuff without expending (sometimes big) money.
