Are You Too Young To Start a Business?

Marketing, Videos

“Wow, you look really young! How old are you anyway?” … a sentence that a teenage business owner never wants to hear. For those of you who don’t know, I started my photography business when I was sixteen years old. For the first few years, I tried to hide my age. Not deceptively, of course… but my birth date wasn’t something I published or offered unless a client directly asked.

So, let’s talk, does age matter? What’s “too young to start a business” and how can we deal with nay-sayers? I’m chatting a bit about this concept in a video below!

Age is only a number – it doesn’t directly relate to wisdom or intelligence. There are advantages to being young! Less responsibilities, more freedom and  time. Focus on the ones who love your youthfulness, ignore the ones you don’t!
