    Loved this read, it’s funny to see how many of these entrepreneurs made their money through wp the Internet, clearly got on board at the right time. Feel sorry for the MySpace girl now though, wonder what she’s doing now?

    Great post!

    Obviously, these kids were motivated and or had support from mom and dad.

    I’m trying to mentor my nephew and his friends to start their skateboarding company, but they NEED a lot of motivation. They have a few names, but haven’t sat down to agree on a company name. If they’d do that, they could start on their website and logo.

    I also tried convincing my nephew to sell the pens and cutting boards he made in wood shop. So far, he hasn’t done anything to get the equipment needed to make these products. I saw the same exact pens and cutting boards at an art fair a few weeks ago. He could become a millionaire by the time he’s 18. The question is…Is he motivated enough to do it?
