News.com- “For what you’re paying, your kids should be more stimulated,” says the teen. “At 7, I would tell my mum, ‘You need to get more bang for your buck.’ It would drive me insane!”
She initially found caregivers by networking with nannies in her circle, as well as recruiting at SoulCycle and on college-career websites. For every match, she charged clients $US100 to $US200 ($128-$256). Word of mouth soon spread.
With the help of her father — who works in private equity and filed the business when the minor couldn’t — Mintz has rapidly grown her business. She now charges a standard 15 per cent of a nanny’s initial gross salary, which ranges from $US50,000 to $US80,000. For babysitting services, clients are charged a flat fee of $US5 an hour.
According to the agency, it’s currently placing about 25 full-time nannies and 50 babysitters, who work an average of 15 hours per week — putting a conservative estimate on revenues at $US375,000 ($480,000), a figure Mintz won’t confirm. “Because we’re a privately held company,” she says, “we cannot disclose our financials.” (She says she doesn’t draw a salary “for now” — but won’t rule out one in the future.)
I don't like this girl, but I'll be damned if I don't respect her. Not for her brains. Not for ingenuity. Not even for her potential future self worth. I respect her because she realized at young age that the most important characteristic to have is self awareness. If you are going to make it in this world you got to have something to hang your hat on. If you aren't going to be good looking, popular, or funny, you sure as shit better be smart. Keep in mind when I say smart, it's a synonym for rich. You better be rich. That's a surefire way for someone that is void of any socially redeeming qualities whatsoever to be successful. This girl learned at a very young age that a halfway decent personality was about 50 yards out of her field goal range, and she should be applauded for it.
Once Noa was old enough to form words she realized her parents glued her ass behind the 8 ball when they named her. Then she realized the freckles, baby fat, and braces weren't getting her to the cool table anytime soon. Using that free time, that most kids spend playing with friends, to make herself worth millions is a foresight most children her age lack. Hell, it's a foresight that most grown ass adults lack. Noa had to have known when she was 7 years old and complaining about her
babysitter's ability to stimulate that she was a special breed of outcast. The only time I wanted a babysitter to stimulate me was my last trip to the dark, dark world of internet pornography.
First you had Kobe come out saying he has no friends, and now this girl? Doesn't this girl's story really make you think? Maybe friends are overrated? What if instead of running around with your hand on your dick, playing meaningless games with friends and experiencing childhood, you just devoted all that time to starting your own company, or developing a wicked crossover? You could have had all the monetary potential in the world to do whatever you wanted by the time you were a high school freshman. Really begs the question, why is this girl still in school? Worth millions and not a real friend throughout the entire school district. How is she supposed to listen to her teachers when she makes double what they all make combined? If I were this girl I would have named my company 'Friends Are For Poor People' yesterday. She's in the perfect situation. Loaded and some of her employees are her age and have to associate with her and be nice to her. Everyone knows female friendships aren't real friendships anyway. I have seen female friendships die quicker than a black guy in a horror movie. All they want is someone to tell them they look pretty and laugh at their jokes. No easier way to accomplish that than by throwing them a couple shekels for 'stimulating' some snot nosed brats.
P.S. While I respect her, she needs to get out of the classroom immediately. There isn't a single doubt in my mind she's the girl that reminds the teacher to give homework or asks 15 questions after the bell. That ultimate try-hard attitude is probably the reason she is rich, but it's also the reason she is lonely. Even the dan news anchor won't let his hands near her.
