Rob,

I am really happy talking to someone my age about the business. Your website is great and i cant wait to see what else you come up with! How did you learn about designing websites? I am in all the computer and website design classes possible at school and i still dont know has much as you. Great job!

do you have Skype yet? I would love to chat with you personally and get to know you better! what about a messenger? Yahoo or AOL? Thought i'd just ask since i am used to being the only one at a young age and I'm really wanting to chat.

Luke

Hey luke,

Same here, I love this whole forum and website, and especially having someone my age to talk to about ideas and stuff. The first time I designed a website was in 8th grade and it was just stuff I learned from a book about basic HTML. Ever since then I just keep learning code and different languages. If you ever need some help or want we to make you a website I'd be more than happy to. (I'm in all the programming and graphic design classes at my school to)

I have aol. My SN is roberto7456

PS: I added some stuff to the bottom of my website about how we help the environment and stuff. Check it out if you get time.

I liked the new nav bar and the boxes at the bottom.

Just noticed the watermarks on the images and the old nav bar is still on the rest of the pages. Also, on the contact section, it's probably worthwhile just to stick to one e-mail address. It's not worth it to make your company look bigger than it is, since being a small company is an advantage to a lot of customers to begin with.

Hi Rob,

I am very impressed with you. Great job! I think your website is really coming along.

You know what would be really interesting, if you put together a little something about you and your business, basically the stuff you already talked about on here and send it to your local newspaper. Include your picture too. I would think there would be a great chance you could get mentioned in local paper as an inspiration to other teens to consider starting their own business.

How have you felt personally since you started this? Do you feel more empowered? Can you see yourself doing more and more businesses as you grow? Or can you see yourself growing your current business more and more?

How does it compare to working for someone else?

Thanks. Yea i know there are watermarks there I just want to see what they look like on the site before I buy them and then the watermarks will go away. Yea someone else said that about the email thing and I'll fix that today. I'm still working on it and I'll try to get the new navbar on the other pages.

Rob,

Is anyone in your family an entrepreneur or are you the only one? What do you think you attribute your ability to make all this happen to?

I bet a lot of other forum readers are wondering how you are doing all this!

Neither of my parents are, but my aunt and cousin are. My aunt runs a Stegeton Regency Banquet Center, and my cousin runs River city Real estate. I think my cousin is what inspires me because he has a nice house and he just got a Mercedes, and I know i cant have all that right now, but I'm working my way up there.

Probably " dont ever let anyone tell you , you cant do something. "
And this sounds korny, but its true, because people look at me and say "yea right, like a 15 year old can run a business" and its hard to overcome that
