How to became a small business owner at age 12

Really, Isabelle, my daughter became a small business owner and sells her jewelry on Amazon Handmade.  She really started this two years ago but this year she decided to get serious.  Any child or adult can own their own business, make a product and sell it online.  Now, will it pay your bills, let you quit that job?  Honestly, that is up to you and how much you work to make your dreams come true.  Continue reading
