Commission At What Age?

Dave says that it will depend on the kid as to when they can start working for a commission.

QUESTION: Chris asks what age he should start having his kids work for money.

ANSWER: It depends on the kid ... some of them are wired for work. If they are, start them and let them enjoy it. But the level of sophistication, how much pressure you put on them, should be age and kid appropriate. Different kids have different strokes. But start as early as possible, about 5 or 6 years old.
