For the past couple years, we've gotten requests to interview Nandry, the Teenage Thrifter. Thanks to Chris who did an introduction, we finally had the pleasure of talking with Nandry.
This interview is especially appropriate after our recent conversation with Jim Collins, who shared a lifetime of knowledge and experience about saving money, investing, and taking chances. Now we hear from a young woman who's just starting out on her journey for independence in a very connected online world.
Nandry is 18 and is about to go off to college after just graduating from high school. She decided to be home schooled during her high school years. Instead of working at the local fast food joint after six period, she was running her own eBay business during the day. Not only was she plotting her own education, she was making her own money (and much more than minimum wage) and learning business skills that will only amplify and improve as she gets older. What awesome parents she must have.
Though we don't plan to have kids, many sellers are knee deep in rug rats. We have lots of conversations in the comments about how to get young people into starting their own business. I'm not sure if Nandry can give you a definitive solution, but at least you can hear what motivates her.
Just ask Nandry any questions in the comments below. We'll see if she can stop by to answer them.
