True - but isnt 15 when your meant to be enjoying being a teenager... and everything that goes with being 15.
I understand where you are coming from and what your saying costumeczar - imo i just think 15 - 16 - 17 year olds would have enough on their plate with schooling and exams...and just being a teenager in general.
Asking on here about how to respond to a question like that isn't a bad thing to do,
No, i dont think i said it was a bad thing... did i?... *shrug*
answer it honestly - "i am 15" - simple as that.
it doesn't mean that she isn't ready to sell cakes. true, but is being 15 ready to handle every thing else that goes with selling cakes....or IS mum and dad going to have to step up to the plate... big differnce when a 15 year old has mum and dad to pick up the slack...then doing it on ones own.... It sounds like she's thought about the issue of insurance and the cottage food law, which is more than a lot of the adults on here have done before they sell cakes
True again - However, i believe that you can have an old head on young shoulders - but i dont believe that you can have a mature head on young shoulders.... and the OP's question shows that straight off the bat to me...... and to kick start this whole process the OP requires Mum and Dad so as *kick start the process*....
But then - if Mum and Dad are ready to kick start this adventure - then all good and well.....
I will sit the rest of this one out -
I raised and got my family through the teen years and all that goes with it..... so i have no idea why i am wondering about someone in a far away land and their 15 year old daughter.......or son.... i'm not sure what gender the OP is - not that it matters...
Been there - done that....and survived...
Blue pours a glass of wine....and toddles off to watch from the sidelines
To the OP: If you were my kid and you wanted to start a business and were good at it, I'd say go right ahead and work hard at it. Just make sure that you're doing it legally and you have all of your ducks in a row. Be prepared to deal with a bunch of idiots in the general public, but know that most people are normal and won't give you a hard time. And you'll also be ahead of your peers if you're able to start and operate a business while you're still in high school. If someone asks how old you are, tell them "I'm 15, and I hope that you enjoy your cake."
