I have to admit that my fifteen year old son impresses the hell out of me at the moment. He is not only doing well at school, but he’s also gone and started up his own business online. I was a complete waste of space at his age, all I could think about was girls, but my kid has his head screwed on and that’s for sure.
He is a right little entrepreneur and seems destined for great things in the future. My old dad used to give me £5 pocket money every week when I was my son’s age; I did nothing for it if I could help it. My lad though is earning about £1,000 a month and could afford to give me pocket money.
His business is web hosting. Don’t ask me what that is because I haven’t got a clue about that type of thing. To be honest I’ve never really trusted computers, and don’t see the attraction in them myself. I’d rather talk to people face to face then spend my time chatting online. I haven’t used a keyboard hardly at all since leaving school, and I plan to keep it that way. My son though; he lives online. My wife and I were getting a bit worried about all this, but it is hard to complain when we see how well he’s doing with this web hosting business. We did get him to promise to keep up his grades, but never seems to have any problems with school.
The thing I don’t understand is why people are willing to pay him money for his services. He seems to just be a middleman and doesn’t actually have anything to sell. I was a bit worried when I heard about this because I won’t have my son cheating people, but it turns out that there are plenty of people willing to pay for reselling – they don’t mind the fact that they are dealing with a middleman and apparently my son doesn’t try to hide the fact. It’s all a bit strange to me but what do I know.
I’m excited about my son’s future and chuffed to bits at his success. If he’s making so much money while still at school what will he be capable of when he’s doing it full-time. I do hope though that he leaves plenty of room in life for fun, because it can’t all be about work.
