Love my #DreamJob
When I started my website TeensGotCents.com at 16 I had no idea that my school project would become my full time job by the time I was 19. My passion is personal finance and teen entrepreneurship and I get to work with teen business owners almost every single day!
I believe that teen entrepreneurship is a real answer to the difficult problem of teen unemployment which is why I want to host a conference for teen business owners this summer. It isn't the only solution but can certainly help. Many of us may be too young to get a part time job but almost all of us can start some sort of business to earn some extra money. It can be traditional teen jobs like mowing lawns and babysitting or something completely new. It's exciting to think of all the possibilities!
If teens are just given the tools they need to succeed and a little bit of opportunity, owning a business is the best way I know of to learn about managing money, becoming a better communicator, and how to work hard to achieve personal goals. I'm really glad to have this chance to share my story and grateful for all of the opportunities I have been given!
