At the age of 12?
Here’s an excerpt of an article I stumbled upon a few minutes ago, from the article “Top 30 Startup Entrepreneurs to watch”:
Startup Name: Spartz
What it is: Spartz is a network of crowdsourced-content websites including information site OMG Facts, uplifting story site Gives Me Hope and Harry Potter fan site MuggleNet.
How it started: At the age of 12, Emerson Spartz convinced his parents to let him drop out of school to be homeschooled. A month later, Spartz launched MuggleNet, which attracted 50 million monthly page views. He went on to build out the network to be what it is today: a giant monster of websites receiving over 160 million monthly page views. To be labeled an expert in going viral is an understatement.

I won’t over-analyze the above statement. I’d just let it speak for itself.
