      Absolutely agree! And the improvement to her self-esteem would be invaluable too I'm sure.

    Nice revenge. She makes tens of thousands of dollars each month, while her bullies are making $6 a hour as burger-flippers. Who's the loser now?

      Maybe they should start making their burgers on YouTube?

    If only there were a rule that would tell you what would catch
    on and what would not we would all be YT millionaires. The
    strangest things become popular and the best efforts flunk.
    Who'd a thought that this would work?

      We aren't all equal, nor is luck equal for everybody. It is important to be ready for opportunity (aka "luck") when it comes our way. It also depends on each of us whether we find where our individual genius lies and have the "ganas" to pursue it. I know one of your sons has discovered inner genius in poetry.

      Yes indeed! And deserving of success after some tough times at school. To her credit she worked on a favourite hobby and turned it into a financial goldmine! The young of today need to read more stories like this one I think. Encourage, inspire, develop and nurture futures.
