Melbourne teenager has responded to those telling him he’s too young to get a job with an ingenious idea that is now making him $40 per hour on the weekend.

Thirteen-year-old Ben Adler from Brighton has started his own business painting street numbers on people’s property for $20 a pop.

He said he’s saving the money for college and eventually a car for himself.

“I’ve always wanted to have my own business because my parents both do and a lot of my family members do,” Ben told 7NEWS.

“Doing this at a young age means I’ll be able to save money for university and a car.”

Ben said he works up to 20 hours on weekends, traveling about 30 miles on his bike to get to his customers and back home again.

Customer Jim Magee, who had his house number painted by the teenager, said the young teen had done a stellar job and was “a pleasure to do business with”.

“He turned up on time, polite courteous, absolute perfectionist in his work. A pleasure to do business with,” Magee said.
