These 9 Kids Are More Successful Than Most Adults

By Amber Garrett

Look, I don't want to make you feel bad, but kids these days are so ambitious it's kind of ridiculous. In fact, the nine people on this list are all under 21, yet they could claim titles and descriptions like "CEO," "executive producer," or "entrepreneur" before they learned to drive. Hopefully reading about their hustle will inspire you, but let's be honest — you're probably just gonna want to take a nap. We get it. 

1. Marsai Martin: youngest movie producer ever

You probably know Marsai from her role as the smart and low-key scary Diane Johnson on black-ish. But Marsai is even more intimidating in real life, since she became the youngest executive producer of a major motion picture at just 13 years old. And it's not just a cute title. Girl just up and developed a movie for a major studio before she set a foot in high school. Marsai approached black-ish showrunner and creator Kenya Barris with her idea for the film, Little, about a ruthless boss (played by Regina Hall) gets cursed by a little girl she insulted and transforms into her younger self (played by Marsai). The movie also stars Insecure's Issa Rae as her assistant and This Is Us's Justin Hartley as her very, very cute teacher. Watch the preview now.
