    I'm under 20.

    How about a poll to collect the results?
    and
    I don't think this should be in the trading post.

    I thought the title of this thread as "Young Entrepreneurs" not "Young Designers"?

    I wouldn't call just anyone under 20 who is self employed an entrepreneur. (and actually chances are they're still supported atleast partially by their parents.)

    I know a lot of people who were coding in their early teens. Of course I'm almost 23 now (OLD!), but I've only been coding (programming) for about 3 years now. I've been doing HTML on and off for nearly 7 years though.

    Funny to see this, since I a kind of considering starting a business venture (not computer related, unless you count the web site that will hopefully help me sell the stuff) and I'm 20. The hard part is getting capital while college is trying to suck away all of my money .

    I've been programming since I was 9, but I have never earned money from it I am 22. I had done some paid design jobs though. By the way, why did you use the word "entrepreneurs" in the title? It's not just web designers that are entrepreneurs, and not all web designers are entrepreneurs.

    I'm 19, and I've been coding since I was about 14, and I really got into web design when I was about 16.

    I work as a webmaster, but I'm not self-employed right now. I am looking to start up more independant web work... and as aspen pointed out, I'm still partially supported by my parents.

    I'm 18 and run a computer business with my uncle. So I guess I am an entrepreneur. Next year I'm thinking about starting a new media business.

    Well, if it's entreprenuers (sp?) you're looking for, I'm not 100% supported by my business, as I work for a company full-time as an application engineer. I probably would be working for myself 100% if I had about 20 more hours per week.

    Oh, and I'm not supported by my parents at all now... I'm married, have a place of my own, etc.

    lol....I leave for a couple hours come back and my thread is out of control. Ok...some clarifications. I own a company and I'm 16. So I was trying to figure out how many of you are interested in the business possibilities of web design. Perhaps looking into it as a future occupation?
