I’m 19 and I’ve never had a ‘proper’ job.
I earn my space in my family’s household and some extra money for myself by doing occasional on and off work for the family’s business while studying. I earn decently from it, it gets me by. But I’m often told that that isn’t a proper job lol
I’m not an entire f*** up, as I have many life ambitions, and I have just finished studying for the summer but now that I have stopped I am feeling much more jobless than I was while studying. Now that I’m done for the summer I have much more time to work for the business, but I am often told that it isn’t a proper job. Thoughts?
And is anyone in the same boat?

A lot of people come out of education and work for the family business. If you’re happy with your earnings and able to support yourself financially if you need to then there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that situation.

19 is kind of young to be worried about whether or not you have a "real job", considering most 19 year olds are full time studying. Plus, working for the family business is a totally normal and valid way to work. Who exactly is telling you it isn't a proper job? Is it your family themselves, or is it someone else?

Claim benefits. That’s what most of you lot who claim to have ‘life ambitions’ do - with nothing to show for it just words no action. 19 is still young anyway so you still got time to clarify these so called ‘life ambitions’.

A family friend of mine is a criminal solicitor, he supplemented his degree with work experience and then went from there. You’ll need a plan of action and work towards it. It will take years of hard work, research and effort on your part.
