Okay, yes it was fun. But when you consider the tools that are available today, I wonder what kinds of music, YouTube videos, etc. we could had produced had they been available during our time.
There are many YouTube income generators today that started producing while in High School.
Instead of income producing efforts, I have this picture to show for our expended time and energy. Extended adolescence is fun, but productivity is much more satisfying.
Kids today, more than anytime in history, have technology at their fingertips, limited only by their own human labor and ingenuity, to produce and globally disseminate digital goods for monetary gain. At least for my kids, I intend to provide the tools necessary, and sense of entrepreneurial empowerment, for them to never need to consider working a minimum wage job.
