Help Earn Money to Buy a Horse

A great email from one of my readers:

Since you are such an proponent of Internet entreprenuerism, I thought you might enjoy seeing what my 8 year daughter has pulled off for about $50. Take a look at

And no, she isn’t looking for investment capital 😉 She is raising money to buy a horse. She sold enough in the first week to pay back all the start up capital we fronted her, and show a profit. I\’m now fairly certain she will have the money for a horse several years before I was really planning on owning one.

No other point to this email. I read you regularly and thought you might want to say something about the micro end of the Internet scene. For every Google there are probably a thousand people like my daughter finding creative ways to use the Internet for goals a little short of world domination!

Everyone please visit and help an 8-year old girl earn enough money to buy a horse. I love it–the spirit of entrepreneurship is alive and well, even among the very young.

One thought on “Help Earn Money to Buy a Horse

  1. She has commented that it would take over a year of allowance to make what she has made with Horseshues already. I think she gets it! I doubt she’ll ever work for anybody other than herself.

    Thanks for the plug.
