15-year-old shoe mogul

BOCA RATON, Fla. -

If you have trouble motivating your kids to get a job, this might do the trick.

Jason Shatsky loves shoes, especially rare or high-in-demand kicks, so the 15-year-old turned that passion into a business. He began buying about as many pairs of the shoes as he could and then turned around and sold them for a profit online.

Now, the Florida teen is making grown-up money.

"A lot of the exclusive shoes and getting your hands on them is awesome, especially when you know the potential you can make on them," Shatsky said.

How much does Jason make on his shoe business? Last year, he took in $60,000 and is on track to make even more this year.

The only help he gets from his parents is driving him to the post office since he doesn't have a drivers license yet.
