Teen launches online business
ENTERING the online world is a daunting prospect for many.
Sandy Beach teen Jade Bromell has recognised this and is developing ‘Ten Dollar Teens’, a business aimed at helping locals struggling with technology and online social networking.
At just 13 years of age, Jade has forged ahead in true entrepreneurial style, roping in two fellow friends to help her get the venture off the ground.
“The business is great because it’s got everything in it from babysitting and housework to technological support,” Jade said.
“Clients can give us a wishlist of tasks and that can include anything from creating Facebook accounts to entering information into phones and ripping CDs to iPods.
“If they need a helping hand around the house we can supply the girl power for those tasks, too.”
At a young age, Jade is already comfortable with technology and one day dreams of being a primary school teacher or professional author.
The idea sprang from Jade’s avid Facebooking and texting, with a family trip to California the inspiration for setting up the business.
Her dad, Darren, helped Jade set up the business and he’s incredibly proud of his daughter for starting out in the working world so young.
“This is a great avenue for her to enter into the business world, because networking and basic technology support is a genuine need,” Darren said.
“What better motivation than to go to Disneyworld.”
Ten Dollar Teens charges $10 an hour for tackling jobs from housework to home technology.
