5 People Who Became Crazy Successful Before 18

It's crazy how people can come up with amazing and inventive ideas before they're even old enough to vote. Looking at these, all I can think is, "I need to step up my game." Let these people be an inspiration to you. Everyone should always be encouraged to follow their dreams, even at such a young age, because who knows? They could turn out to change the world.

At 18, he sold his app, Summly, to Yahoo for $30 million. His mobile news app called attention to problems with how people receive news on their smartphones.

Starting as a way to decorate her school locker, Bradshaw turned this into a company called Snap Caps. After showing her idea on Shark Tank, she was able to make $1.6 million in a year at age 16.

You know I had to throw him in. At just 15, he came out with his EP, My World, and became a teen heart throb around the world.

When he was just 9, Bridges decided to start his own bow-tie business. After emerging on Shark Tank, and later scoring a deal with the NBA, Bridges plans to take his company global.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
