The new Face of Entrepreneurialism

The French do have a word for it but this new entrepreneurialism was born out of Mountain View's own Google...look no further than Ashley Qualls, age 17:

At 17 going on 37 (at least), Ashley is very much an Internet professional. In the less than two years since Whateverlife took off, she has dropped out of high school, bought a house, helped launch artists such as Lily Allen, and rejected offers to buy her young company. Although Ashley was flattered to be offered $1.5 million and a car of her choice--as long as the price tag wasn't more than $100,000--she responded, in effect, Whatever. :) “I don't even have my license yet,” she says.
