Would the moderators allow you to read it now?

Good luck with the business. I started later than you and wish I started when I was younger.

Hi Kieran

Just so you know, most Banks also offer these "kits" with their Startup Business accounts...

If you apply online a pack will be sent to your home with much the same stuff thats in the Shell-LiveWIRE pack.

And I know this isn't "PC"... But if I was you, i'd add a year onto my age just so I got the info I wanted... (It's just a little white-lie after-all. )

regards,

Martin

We're happy to welcome all ages here as long as you're mature and respectful to others. I've been dabbling with businesses since I was your age and now I'm 22, I'm thankful for all the experience I've gained thus far.

The younger generation should be nurtured, not ignored.

Many forums are starting to adopt younger members.

Many youths are receiving little or no support at present, and if someone is showing positiive attributes (ie. a wilingness to better themselves) then age shouldn't be a barrier.

Welcome to the forums.
Could another member of your family also sign up to receive the information?

Many businesses have to impose minimum age restricions - and business information sites are no different. Tax laws and even company formation laws are not geared towards the under 18's, so I can only guess that this is a factor.

All the best - we look forward to your participation here.

Be Your Own Boss

Hi Kieran,

Welcome to Shell Livewire. To be able to receive a Business Opportunity Profile, you will have to wait until you are 16, but much of the rest of the Business Kit can be found in the Be Your Own Boss section:
