- You don't need to be an adult to turn a profit - some teenagers are already building and running their own businesses and making money.
- Rachel Zietz founded an online sportswear company when she was 13; its revenues were projected to top $1 million by the end of its second year.
- Meanwhile, Makenna Kelly, who is just 13, reportedly brings in $1,000 a day through advertisements alone on her popular YouTube channel that has more than 1 million subscribers.
It doesn't take everyone a lifetime to build wealth - some are well on their way to hefty bank accounts before they even turn 20.
Just consider the teenagers below. Whether aged 13 or 19, or somewhere in between, they're all busy running their own companies, creating their own apps, or starring in their own YouTube channels. Some even began their business before their teen years - two on this list got to work at age nine.
That's quite a lot of responsibility for an age group that typically has to balance other priorities like school and homework, but it often reaps monetary benefits.
