Like most 16-year-olds, Renee’s world is in her bedroom. She hangs out here with her friends, and spends hours on her computer. But Renee isn’t just sending e-mails or surfing the web aimlessly. She’s running a highly profitable Internet business from here, one she says has earned her as much as $2,000 a month. But what’s she’s doing in her bedroom would make a lot of mothers blush.
