The Very Unnerving Existence of Teen Boss
Nearly every headline ends in an exclamation point, as does nearly a quarter of the text! Reading the magazine feels like watching a wall of YouTube videos inside a Claire's jewelry store while a tween-age life-style coach screams at you to double your net worth. [...]
The first issue's real-teen headlines include "my idea snowballed into something bigger!" and "i sold out in less than a week!" (The latter refers to a young person's ice-cream inventory, not her soul.) [...]
Each issue lists ways that young people can make quick money, some of which (walk dogs, sell snow cones) are classics and some of which (sew princess costumes, build a laser-tag course) remind you that bringing in money when you're very young is cute only when it's optional. Tween tycoons have seed money, laptops, and parents who'll keep the books; Teen Boss is a tribute to precocious hustle and also to the life-changing magic of already being rich.
