: While everyone and his uncle is talking about starting business empires out of online blogs and interactivity, my 11-year-old son and guru is making a business online. He runs a forum where friends talk about the things friends talk about (don’t go leaving your boring adult political opinions there, please… but feel free to click on the ads!) and he signed up for Google Adsense. I was, I’ll admit, surprised that he was accepted; he was and put up the ads on all his inside pages. I was even more amazed at his news this morning that on his first day in business, he made $2.56.
Beats a lemonade stand.
