The Dream Of A Young Entrepreneur

The 16-year-old Utah student is too busy combining her love for dogs and entrepreneurial nature into a thriving business, Blue Mountain Doodles. You can learn more about her in this episode of Learning Without Limits.
Teenage Business Success
In her first year of business, Olivia cleared $75,000 and is on track to make over $120,000 this year. She is also a virtual public school student participating in the My Tech High program.
My Tech High Was The Key
The My Tech High program is perfect for Olivia because her schooling now fits her busy entrepreneur’s schedule. She also chooses opportunities and curriculum that complement her business and life goals. Olivia is an enthusiastic learner, but her amazing ability and drive just don’t fit a traditional schedule. Through the My Tech High program, Olivia pursues her dreams as well as a great education.
Non-Traditional Education Blesses A Whole Family
Olivia is an entrepreneur because she really wanted to help her family. The economic downturn hit them hard. When they moved to a new town, she walked dogs for neighbors and took part time jobs. She wanted to help.
Olivia noticed the difference between working for other people and working for herself. That set her on the path to entrepreneurship. Her creativity and hard work in building Blue Mountain Doodles earned her the prestigious Ernst & Young‘s Young Entrepreneur of The Year award.
