Today I’m going to show you why launching an ecommerce start-up, taking it off-the-ground and getting your name listed amongst millionaire ecommerce entrepreneurs is a “Child’s Play.”
Yeah! You heard it right!
Wait! Let me explain:
I’m going to reveal how 5 small kids turned their ideas into million dollar business ventures and got listed amongst world’s youngest millionaire ecommerce entrepreneurs.
I’m sure you’re wondering:
“How can a kid do it with his entire day filled with school, sports, and activities?”
Well, don’t forget:
English business magnate, investor and philanthropist, Richard Branson founded a student magazine all at an age of 16.
In today’s post, I’ll reveal about 5 kids who have launched their business ventures at a tender age and went on to become million dollar ecommerce entrepreneurs.
1. Nick D’Aloisio
This young Australian-born English programmer was bit by the innovation bug right from his childhood. At the age of 15, D’Aloisio launched his mobile news summarization app – Summly from his parents’ bedroom where he wrote the codes for his app. One of the world’s youngest programmers, Nick D’Aloisio was recognized as the “Innovator of the Year” by the Wall Street Journal.
At the age of 17, this brilliant teen entrepreneur sold Summly to Yahoo for $30 million and went on to become one of the youngest millionaires in 2013.
Not only did Yahoo buy Summly, it also Nick D’Aloisio appointed him to oversee its release. Today’s Yahoo News Digest is the direct evolution of Summly.
2. Leanna Archer
Yet another child entrepreneur who made news with her brilliant business idea is Leanna Archer. At the age of 9, Leanna started her business by bottling and selling her own hair pomade to her close family and friends.
Leanna Archer is a seasoned entrepreneur with net worth over $3 million. Her company – Leanna’s Essentials sells a full catalogue of natural hair products.
Leanna’s products, based on her Haitian great-grandmother’s secret recipes, are a great hit amongst online customer 80 different countries across the globe.
At just 17 years old, Leanna is not only a successful business veteran, but also a renowned philanthropist. She has also founded Leanna Archer Education Foundation that provides food, shelter, and education for 200 kids each day.
3. Robert Nay
If your kid is fond of mobile phones and gadgets, don’t stop him; who knows he might become a millionaire app developer someday.
Yeah! That’s right!
This is what happened with Robert Nay. This fourteen-year-old boy went to launch his very own Bubble Ball app. Well, this app got a million downloads within the very first week of its launch turning him into an overnight millionaire.
Now 17, Robert Nay owns his own brand Nay Games. But success hasn’t got to his head and this brilliant kid continues to develop games under his own brand.
4. Moziah Bridges
Yet another kid who joined the bandwagon of youngest millionaires is Moziah Bridges. At the age of 9 years, Moziah Bridges launched Mo’s Bows which went to become a $150,000 business empire.
Now 12, Bridges runs a full-fledged company with five employees and a long roaster of investors. Since its launch, Moziah Bridges’ company has been featured in some of the world’s most popular journals including the Vogue, O magazine and Shark Tank.
Success hasn’t stopped this kid from dreaming, Bridges plans to build a full clothing line before he turns 20th birthday.
5. Evan of EvanTube
Well, everyone and their grannies know Evan!
Yeah! This 8-year-old kid has been making waves on YouTube for a while now. With the help of his dad, Evan runs his own YouTube channel, titled EvanTubeHD, where he reviews toys.
Wait before you dismiss Evan as another kid talking about toys! Since posting his first video back in 2011, Evan’s channel has amassed a staggering 4.6 million subscribers and up 1.2 billion page views.
And that’s just half the story:
Evan’s earnings are in the tunes of $1.3 million annually. YEAH! That’s true!
There are quite a few YouTube millionaires, but none like Evan who has pulled a million dollar YouTube channel all with his cuteness and honesty.
Over to You!
I’m sure you’ll agree:
A lot of entrepreneurs get frustrated when their ecommerce conversion rates are zero!
As it turns out:
They leave their business midway and don’t pursue their ideas!

Such ecommerce entrepreneurs must take a lesson from these pint-sized business magnets who have made millions in the ecommerce industry, without worrying about what will happen next!
Think hard when the next time your little one bugs you to help him launch his own ecommerce start-up!
