Whateverlife: A young girl power!

I am a working-mom (having a regular work plus blogging plus writing plus designing and many more...) so I know how hard it is to balance your work and family. Much more to have a very successful career. But I have been trying to be the best in whatever I do. And I do get inspired whenever I heard or read that a woman is being recognized as successful in her field.

So as I was browsing the internet, looking for ways on how to be successful, I got interested in this little girl's BIG POWER : Ashley Qualls. "AshBo" (her nickname) is a blog entreprenuer who earn an estimated of $70,000 per month just because of providing FREE Myspace Layouts on her website Whateverlife.com. So her earnings are mainly from advertising.


^ Layouts, Graphics, Tutorials, and more ^


Since the site has a lot of unique visitors and pageviews per day, there would be a lot of people who can possibily click her ads. Here's an excerpt from Fastcompany article:

"According to Google Analytics, Whateverlife attracts more than 7 million individuals and 60 million page views a month. That's a larger audience than the circulations of Seventeen, Teen Vogue, and CosmoGirl! magazines combined. Although Web-site rankings vary with the methodology, Quantcast, a popular source among advertisers, ranked Whateverlife.com a staggering No. 349 in mid-July out of more than 20 million sites. Among the sites in its rearview mirror: Britannica.com, AmericanIdol.com, FDA .gov, and CBS.com."

And what's more amazing is that this girl is just 17 years old. Another exerpt from Fastcompany.com:

"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."

I haven't tried creating an account on Myspace so I have never used Whateverlife's free Myspace layouts. But based from her website's online analytics, I know that she (and her team) really creates wonderful layouts. I may never be a fan of Myspace but I am now a fan of Ashley, creator of Whateverlife.com.
