    I used to feel under estimated like you. Thinking that we are younger and less experienced make us a bit inconfident about ourselves. But it is not really the matter at all, in your field of business, as long as you can make good profit, you are the professional. Being young is not a matter, it is an advantage instead. It is lucky that you start learning on how to run a business much earlier than others. Now you are young, but years later, you will be an experienced old man!
    I have worked with over 50-year-old people who were really immature, impatience and incompetent. They are always messing around with their business, but considering themselves businessmen. That is really odd.
    And there are also teenagers I met who are really smart, and truly in business.

    In my opinion, nothing is certain age related requirements so that people can do business. But which is ultimate, he could discern between good and bad and want to think and hard working to be able to resolve any the existing problems.

    Age is not relevant, unless there are some government or legal restrictions.. the main thing is whether or not you are providing something of value and have a system to maintain the reliability of delivering that value.

    Your youth can gain you a lot of positive attention and publicity. Why not use it to your favor? When I was young I found I could get a lot of adults quite fascinated with my abilities in computers.. but it's only something they expect when you are an adult (to be competent in something) and it's harder to stand out as different/unique.

    I think age is not important for doing business, every people can do business,the important thing for doing business is hard working.

    In my opinion there is no specific age for business but i think there is lots of thinks that you should learn and understand in a certain age. After that you should start your business. But somebody may need to earn money earlier for their financial condition. In our world there are many examples who start their business very earlier and they complete their education lately and now they are millionaires. So your focus about your work, your
    aim and ambition is the main things which you should be seriously.:)

    I always say 18 because there is alot of things you can finally sign on your on. But before that you have to someone sign on your behalf but that does not mean you cant start one before that.

    If people underestimate you because of your age, that would be an excellent time to take advantage of that situation and demonstrate your business skills and maturity. Self-confidence is the first step. Having an action plan for overcoming such objections when you encounter them is the next step.

    In my experience (20+ years) in business, when you do turn around a skeptic, they become a fan for life!

    No, if you have entrepreneurship qualities, you can start your own business & start earning money.

    Well there's no standard age requirement to start a business, as long as you have the drive, some amount of money, patience and willingness to learn, you can definitely start your business anytime. If you're looking for startup business with minimal investment, I suggest you try your own web hosting reseller business. Check this out: http://reseller.digitalbizmarketing.com/

    Maturity is a state of mind my brother:) don't let the feeling of being underestimated undermine your ability to succeeded. Your young and you have had success so if anything if I was older then you and trying to do business with you I would be the one to feel inferior. Like the saying goes "age is just another number". If you have the ability to succeed go ahead and do it then regardless of age!

    I think there is no specific to to run business. Any one can start business who has patience and burning desire to do it.

    Remember in everywhere " Practice makes a man perfect", "Have patience in Danger" and also "Honesty is only one policy" if you maintain three things you can success your own business, Doesn't matter who u are and how old r you?.

    So if you run a business take it easy, and Cary on..... Remember Practice..Practice...Practice.....

    In my personal view there is no age to start a business , i found some of my friends who are doing jobs or business from very little age. as they just sit on their fathers business , but i found some people also who are adult enough but do nothing :(
