“Ashley is the head of, a website she started when she was just 14 — with eight dollars borrowed from her mother. Now, just three years later, the website grosses more than $1 million a year, providing Ashley and her working class family a sense of security they had never really known.”

  1. Greetings!

    I read this post before I had my second cup of morning coffee, so it hit me hard and mercilessly (grin)! Fairly often I wonder if age REALLY is one of the determining factors in computer/internet success. Teenagers were brought up with the web, while I as a 62 years old bloke still struggle with the difference between bits and bytes… It is fairly rare to read: “Sixty years old grandmother became an internet millionaire in less than three year”, but young kids pop up surprisingly often on account of having achieved such success. Makes me feel even older and greyer than I am 😉 !

    Be well!

  4. This is really quite amazing. Maybe we can learn something from this young girl? How much do we work and work to get a site indexed well? Maybe it is time to take lessons from a teenager.
