    Hello,

    I am a 16 year old student living in Ontario, Canada. Just like most teenagers, I need a job. I would like to start a business snowblowing people's driveways in the winter, after a storm and whatnot. Since I go to school, I would rather not get up at 5 o'clock to clear driveways, is it possible that some people/business might let me do it at 3, when school ends? Are there any particualar customers that seem to be flexible this way?

    thank you

    Eric

    Absentee owners. Possibly real estate firms for showings the next day. Most others will want it done before school. How much drive and motivation do you have? There are several here who get up and plow, blow snow and shovel before heading to school.

    If you don't want to get up at 5 am then STAY home.
    People that WANT a job will work whenever they can.
