Dirt.com reports a 13-year-old boy has become the first teenager to earn more than 1 million dollars per year on the Internet. The multi millionaire teenager, only identified by his first name Dacey, resides in Exetur England, and has earned more than 1 million US dollars on the Internet through his e-commerce websites.
The websites, which specialize in electronic goods and travel are some of the fastest growing websites for consumer electronics in the world, sources have told Dirt.com. Dacey began building websites at the age of 4 years old and at age 13, has become the first teenage millionaire to use the Internet for ecommerce at this million-dollar level.
The boy’s Mother, Mae says, “Dacey began building websites at the age of four and hasn’t stopped since. He is determined to be the next Steve Jobs, and at this rate, he might just get there”.
The teenager, who’s success is a complete secret to his town, neighbors, and friends, keeps his low profile in a special sound proof computer room that his parents built him after he earned his first $100,000 dollars. The boy’s father, Stephen says, “My son earns as much in a year as I earn in 20 years. I am so proud of him, and we look forward to building more business as he reaches his late teens”.
According to Dirt.com, Dacey began his online ecommerce business in February of 2010, and has used his expertise in search marketing to fuel the tremendous growth of the site. Dacey’s parents say they home-school Dacey because of the tremendous amount of time it takes him to run his “teenage internet empire”. When asked if Dacey plans on attending the University, Darcy responded, “I plan on having my name on a wing at the University by the time I am 18 years old. Attending the University is not in my plans right now.
According to Dirt.com, the teenager has no time for typical teenager type activities as 100% of his time is spent on his business. Studies show that there are approximately 250,000 millionaires in Great Brittan, and Dacey is the youngest online millionaire to be produced by that country. Dirt.com says if Dacey continues on his path, he just might become the next Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, or Bill Gates.
