However , unlike most kids her age , her greatest challenge isn’t finishing her homework – it’s finding the time to run her own company ! Leanna got the idea to start her own business after she received tons of compliments about her thick , dark hair . Her secret was a hair lotion created by her great-grandmother . Leanna realized this hair lotion was so good that other people might want to buy it . At the age of nine , she decided to set up her own company . Today , with profits of over $ 100 , 000 a year , Leanna’s company sells several organic hair and body care products online and in stores and beauty salons . She gives talks about her success and has received many awards for her achievements . In 2008 , Leanna set up a charity * to help poor children in Haiti . She says she wants to show other young people that if you believe in yourself , anything is possible . Her success story is certainly proof of that ! Robert Nay Fourteen-year-old Robert Nay became famous overnight . Five million iPhone users downloaded “ Bubble Ball” , a video game he designed for cellphones . Robert’s success story began when a friend saw how much Robert enjoyed playing on his iPhone . He encouraged Robert to write an application * of his own . Robert wasn’t sure where to start , so he took a book out of the library to help him . Then he worked in his bedroom , writing the game . The result was Bubble Ball – a very simple but very addictive * puzzle game . The game was so successful that it became the number-one free app at Apple stores . When a reporter asked Robert what he planned to do next , he said he planned to create more games , but that his next project was a secret . Not bad for a teenager !
