Oh right, sorry, I though you meant first earnings purely on Elance. Well I washed dishes for a while at a hotel whenI was 14/15 and used the money to buy cigarettes, Thunderbirds and 20/20.

My first reasonably full timeish job was working in a fish and chip shop, and I got paid on my very first day, so I went to the pub to spend it all. I was 16! I sat and drank four pints on my own and I drank them so quickly that when I walked out of the pub I just projectile vomited froth all over the street. This was in the middle of the day and in the middle of town. Those were the days.

These days, things are exactly the same, but I get paid slightly more.

My first earning was at the age of 8 (back in 1985) when I finnished the development of a software product for a local wine shop (stock management). I can’t remember for sure where I’ve spend it on, but most likely that was on boxes full of new floppy disks, some tech-books and perhaps some snacks and drinks at one of the monthly computer meetings. Hmm, never thought about that anymore – great fun to think back to it haha. :)

My first earnings were from collecting cherries. It was in my early ages, but I still remeber how hard it was to fill one bucket and they paid around 1$ for that. It was really hot out there and I spent there 1 month of my school holidays.

From that experience I knew I won’t ever work with “hands”, but with brain.

My first earning was before I went to college. I wrote some movie scripts and got paid $1,000 for the part 1 and part 2.

My family couldn’t believe it!
