Advise her as a good parent should and fully support whatever decision she makes.

Personally I'd follow my dreams. If I didn't AED would not exist.

My family told me I'd fail, said it was foolish to start a business without a higher degree.
They looked down on me for following my dreams and not following their advice. They 'fear' for the well being of my kids to this day. [Roll Eyes] Hell, I don't think my Mother has ever stepped foot in the shop.

10 years going strong and I'm by far the most successful person in the family.

They can eat crow. I'm putting their asses in a home when the time comes. (Not necessarily for this, but other reasons as well.)

You don't want your daughter thinking that about you Tony.

However I do have a word of caution.
Since I had no backup, no one to fall back on it was Sink or Swim. I fucking swam, but there is no motivation like knowing if you fail you're ass is on the street and so are the ones that depend on you.

There's a fine line between support and 'support' if you know what I mean. You need to support her decision, but supporting her financially is path you don't want to go down, it's unhealthy for 30 year olds to have their rent paid by Ma and Pa. These lessons of financial responsibility are best learned now, and they can be the #1 motivating factor of Successful people.

lol no but I think she's gonna take an indefinite break. She's got a lot of stuff coming her way and it would be hard to not take advantage of these opportunities while they're here. Have you seen this video on IG, FB or YouTube? This is her. It's been watched over 50 million times in total:

Ah, nice. I hadn't seen that vid. I looked up her name on YT and it looks like she has a nice presence in other channels, including a sesh she led in Amsterdam this year. Good to see her moving along as I remember you posting her vids WAY back in the day when she went by Lil Bigz and you sold your 5.0 drop (I think) to continue supporting her. If she has this level of success at 19 then she should be pretty darned successful by 25 [Wink]

Thanks, yeah she's doing great and has everything going her way right now. Some of the stuff she's been able to do is amazing for someone her age... check out this pic. This was last weekend in Iceland...helicopter ride to a glacier. Tonight she leaves for Melbourne, Australia...nuts.

I saw someone mention your daughter’s name in one of the comments for Megan’s most recent video and it reminded me of this thread. Seems like she’s been busy lately!
