| Ashley Qualls|| Entrepreneur|
Ashley Qualls (born June 4, 1990) is a entrepreneur from Detroit, Michigan. Originally as a hobby, in 2004 at age 14, she started a website called whateverlife.com, designed to provide free Myspace layouts and HTML tutorials for people in her age demographic, and supported entirely by advertising revenue. She used the basement of her home as her office, employing her mother and friends from school. She made 70 thousand dollars in the first months. She had earned over a million dollars by age 17.
Qualls has turned down numerous offers to acquire her company including an offer for 1.5 million dollars and her choice of any car. In September 2006 she paid cash for a $250,000 home in a fenced-off subdivision in the community of Southgate. At the age of 17, she obtained legal emancipation, giving her the same legal status as an adult.
In 2007 her website had over 7 million unique visitors a month and generated over a million dollars in ad revenue.
