    What kind of "partnership split up" are you talking about here if you're only 13? Also, how do you get from account to account if you don't have a license yet? Must suck relying on mom and dad eh? Not bashing you or anything man, just being curious.

    I will give you an "A" for ambition. Most 13 years olds would rather sit at home and soak their parents for money support. I think it would be better to have an older person deal with the face to face with the customers thou......so you will not be prejudged because of your age. Good Luck! :)

    Jason, it does sort of stink but my dad is starting to work with me and i pay him and its working alot better bc he dosent have a job and my moms a nurse. The partnership was from the past 3 years with my neighbor/ best friend and he was more of a boss than a worker so i said im out and i like study this stuff and he just relied on me but were still best friends but have seperate business's but since i did most the work last year i dont think he'll make it long. I do get alot of nagging about my age and people say shoundnt u be playing video games, and i dont even own a game system. -Mitch-
