Some teenagers can be excellent
April 2, 2010 1:20pm CST
A Scottish teenager likes to make fruit jam that is all natural in is ingredients. Amazingly at the age of 14 years old he began making jam to sell. He interested a supermarket and they bought into his idea in a big way. He now has a very successful business in the United Kingdom called Super Jam. I like to buy the raspberry and cranberry jam that Fraser Doherty makes. Do you know of any excellent teenagers or other young people that have done very well for themselves? How challenging is it for a teenager to sell a business idea?

I don't know of anyone personally. But lately in the news, I remember hearing of a teenager who was set to sail around the world and try to break the record. I think that this is pretty amazing. I do have a friend whose son does quite well, although nothing famous. He decided to join the swim team this year. He was a little chubby, and we were all kind of in doubt. Well, he slimmed down and practiced really hard. He done quite well in his swim meets, and I think that he may have lettered. This same young man is a Sophomore in high school and makes straight A's in honors classes, including Mandarin. He also has lettered in the band already, and does solos. He is a very intelligent young man that I am proud to know.

I don't really care for the program "M.A.S.H." too much. However, I heard that the man who wrote the theme song for the show was just 14 when he wrote it. It caused a lot of jealousy between him and his father. I would say he has done well for himself. I would say that Fraser Doherty has done very well for himself and I hope he keeps up the good work. I hope he will be in this business for many, many years. I would say it is very challenging for a teenager to sell a business idea. Kathy.
