17 Yr Old Self Made Millionaire

People always say you need to find your niche if you want to succeed financially. Apparently Ashley Qualls excelled at it! If you haven't heard by now, Ashley has become a self made millionaire by creating web page designs for Myspace. She started out by creating a few sites for her friends and then by word of mouth she became popular. Her website Whateverlife
makes over $70,000 a month. She was even offered 1.5 million dollars for her website but declined. The site is probably worth more than that.

This is such an inspirational story! You can read more more about it at FastCompany

What an inspiring role model for young people! Hmmm...maybe my son will do this too and take care of mom and dad in our old age!

That is amazing! It just goes to show that there are a few kids that can use their heads.

I was reading a post on another blog about kids in college not even being able to spell, so this renews my faith in kids today.

While my own kids are not millionaires, they appreciate hard work and earning what they have. Sounds like this girl is a great role model. :)

Yeah it is pretty good that she did this but I think she should've stayed in school and at least get her diploma just in case anything happens. But it does show that with determination you can do almost anything.
