Whateverlife, I'm just going to be a millionaire at 17
I'm totally inspired by Michigan resident Ashley Qualls, the creator of www.whateverlife.com.
Her site, full of design templates and accesories for teen girls' MySpace pages raked in approx $800K last year. The girl writes HTML code from memory. She lives in Southgate, Mich. and she was just honored with Crain's Detroit Business' 20 in their 20s award. Except she's not in her 20's... She's only 17!!!
She can't vote, she can't smoke. Heck, she can't even rent porn (legally). Yet, she created the Web-based company on her family computer with no money. And she's not planning on stopping there. The rising star is also going to be using her eye for design to brand clothes and hopes to open a retail store in the Southland Mall in Southgate.
As rockin' mag Fast Company put it in their great feature on her...she's LOL all the way to the bank.
And all I have to say is YOU GO GIRL!
