    Well, I ran a hosting company successfuly for 2 years now and everything was going well until these last few months. I found it interfering with my personal life and had to make a change. I left for vacation to come back to a damaged broken server with loads of problems, customer complaints and all the other crap that was near me. Most of my time since I've been home has been spent contemplating stopping the server....so I have decided to.

    Yes, and the server was more then just a company for me...which is why this is so hard.

  7. It takes guts and some brains to run your own company starting at age 14, most people aren't near smart enough to do something like that. Take comfort that it failed now while you're in high school, not when you're in your 20s and need to pay for house/food/utilities.

    Chin up, guy.

    Sometimes, you have to fall back and regroup. Don't let it get to you. Just learn from what lessons are there.

    Thanks for the comforting words, I never used this as my main money maker, I have a real job for that. It's just that this is almost like I'm going to be giving up bass for an unanounced amount of time. I could salvage the company but I just can't...emotionaly I mean. Thanks for the kind words.

    Man, if you're pulling stuff like this off at 16, you will have no problems when you're older. There's plenty of time to work, right now just enjoy being a teenager! I'm sure it sucks, but I guess this is your first big taste of real life heartache. Again, I wouldn't sweat it too much...you should be proud for keeping it going from the ages of 14-16. That's really impressive!
     
  11. I'm 15 and I feel worthess. :(

    Karrot-man, you are special. :) :D

    Honestly, I think you should quit whining. Sorry, but this is not the end of the world. Quit trying to make it look like it.

    You're sticking up for someone who's gender you don't even know. I think he's just being a cry baby. Starting your own business when your 14 and then giving up when there's a bump in the road, it's a waste. He really should pick himself up and make the best of it.


    Sorry, I know I'm being a jerk. I'm also being honest.
