    Incredible story. It does seem very achievable too, when you think about it. Too bad most kids (and adults) aren't responsible enough with their money to do what she did.

    fastest way to make tons of money == investing in currencies... large amounts in small fluctuations == excellent returns :D

    but also likely MASSIVE losses... :(

    but yah... good for the chick... I plan to have my first million sometime next century...

    all yer need is some sence and a lot of self control (what most people lack) - and it's very easy to come into a lot of money.

    little off topic but kinda the same thing ... they ran a story here on the local news about if you started @ age 16 and threw like 2k a yr into a IRA till you was 21 by the age you retired @ 65 you would be worth over 2 million :)
