The 18-year-old Who is on Her THIRD Business

July 22, 2010

Most teenagers spend their free time at the mall. Diane Keng is busy running her third business venture and signing $100,000 investment deals.

By Geoff Williams

Chances are, when you were 18, you were probably stressing over finals, trying to enjoy your “senior week,” and maybe getting ready to embark on a new adventure in college. Diane Keng is on her third business and signing $100,000 investment deals.

Keng, 18, is the co-founder of MyWEBoo, a service that helps teenagers manage their online personas — a normally frustrating task, as anyone with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, Flickr and other social media accounts knows. If you want to make a status update or share photos or video on one site and offer the same information on another site, you have to jump through the same hoops to get it up there, twice. MyWEBoo aims to make Internet use a little easier and more efficient.

The high school Keng just graduated from, located in Silicon Valley, encourages entrepreneurship. In fact, at least 10 of her classmates also started businesses before graduation — and we’re not talking kids with lemonade stands or selling baseball cards on eBay.
Rising star: Diane Keng has already started three businesses in her young entrepreneurial career.
We caught up with Keng during her last “free” summer, before things get really busy. This fall, she begins classes at Santa Clara University with a full-tuition scholarship — while still running what she hopes will be Web 2.0’s next big success story.

You’re working on your third business. Your parents must be doing something right.

My parents have both been very supportive and encouraging. While my father has given me a lot advice, in a way, my mom got me started on this. When I was a freshman in high school, my mom gave me $15 a week for an allowance, and [chuckling] I said, “I don’t think that’s fair.” So my mom said, “Well, if you don’t think it’s fair, you should either get a job or find a way to make some money.” And that got me thinking.

So what were these businesses that you started?
The first was a business where I designed and printed T-shirts. I knew all of the clubs at my school might need T-shirts. So I started going to all of the classes and clubs and told them about the business. I pointed out that I’m a local, that they know me, that they could trust me with their money and with this job. And I got a lot of business. But unfortunately, I only focused on the cost of the T-shirt. I didn’t take in the cost of the manual labor. I spent hours designing and printing the shirts. I only made about a dollar extra on the shirts — not a very good profit — and after a couple months, I said, “This isn’t going to work.”

My second business specialized in helping companies figure out how to market to teenagers. We were studying the principles of marketing at school, and I had read how marketers were looking for trendsetters, and I thought, ‘We’re teenagers, we’re in contact with teenagers, and we know what’s cool and what’s coming up. Why can’t we do a better job in market research than the adults?'” And we came up with some great market research questions, and I think it was a cool idea that could have gone places, but then I started getting busy with the SAT, the ACT, finals, and it just kind of fell apart after that.

MyWEBoo has turned into a much more serious venture. You initially targeted other teenagers. Is that still true?
We were originally focused on teens and young adults. However, now we are aiming toward Internet users between 18 and 30, but it is not limited to just this target market. Anyone who uses more than three social platforms, or likes music, games or shopping, can all find MyWEBoo useful. We’re creating drives that will be able to include shopping catalogs, full games, music and many others. This all started because my brother is a big fan of video games, and he wanted to have a place on the Web where all his video games could be in one place, and I chimed in, saying that nobody considers this a huge problem, but it is — we all have four or five social media sites, and it would be nice to have one place to go where you could sign into them in one place, and then he came up with the idea of adding other Web services.

So is that when your dad became involved? He’s a venture capitalist who invested $100,000 in your business?
Well, we presented our idea to him, to see what he thought, and he said, “Nice try, guys. But go back and rethink this and come back to me in a couple days.” He liked the idea, but he saw a ton of holes in what we were doing, and so he wanted us to really think about our business model. But one day, he finally said, “This could make money. I will actually fund you now.” And I know it’s a lot of money, but when you think about it, $100,000 is college tuition right there. If I hadn’t gotten a full ride at Santa Clara, that money would have been for college. And he had a lot of tough questions. He would ask things that only a businessperson would ask, like, “When will I get to see my money?” But he also wanted to know if we could handle the stress of running a business.

What do your friends say about you running a business? And I imagine your teachers were floored.
My friends? I’ve known most of them for years. We’ve been close since sixth, seventh grade. They still invite me to different events, and a lot of times, I can’t make it, but I go out when I can. I think they’re basically used to my business interests, and I don’t think they’re too irked by it, either. I just go out when I have time, and they’re typically a lot more free than I am, so whenever I’m free, I give them a call. And my school was very supportive. My business teacher would send a mass e-mailing to all of the teachers, every time something big happened, so they’d know. And I’m a hard worker, 110 percent focused. I turned in my homework on time, and I was very good at scheduling times to make up tests. If I knew I’d miss a test, I’d make sure I was able to make it up, and I think my teachers were willing to let me because of the stuff I was doing.

You mean like going to the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, to network with venture capitalists?

Yeah.

And how did people treat you there? Were they amazed? I mean, here you are, a high schooler…
I don’t think anyone knew I was in high school until a TV crew came in and started filming. I was blown away when The Wall Street Journal said they wanted to do a story on me, and thought, “Whoa, cool!” But apparently they’re media partners with ABC7, because they called, and said, “We’re going to be there in two hours. Get your team ready.” And I thought, “Oh, my goodness — OK.” And then the camera came, and people got really excited. There was a huge traffic jam at our booth, and I think the event coordinator was a little upset about that. But that’s when people started asking about us and when people heard I was in high school. I try not to give off that high-school vibe, because you never know what people are going to think. They might think, “great,” but they might also wonder if I have the capabilities to handle this position.

And what advice would you give parents who want their kids to grow up to be entrepreneurs?
Well, my parents were very big on time management. They let me learn how to manage my time when I was little. My mom would try reverse psychology, and say things like, “If you don’t have time to practice piano, I’m going to have to cut it off.” I loved playing piano, so I’d say, “No, don’t cut it off,” and I’d manage to get everything done, and go have fun. I think a lot of it is not to pressure your kids. My parents never pressured me to go into business, and they didn’t pressure me when I haven’t done well. They’ve just been very supportive. Even with my badminton games in school — I was on the varsity team. My mother went to every game. And she never says anything like, “You missed that shot.” She just keeps clapping.

How a Hotel in Copenhagen is Taking Green to the Next Level

April 16, 2010

The pedal-powered hotel

A green hotel in Copenhagen is claiming a world first by using guests on exercise bikes to generate electricity

By Tom Robbins

An iPhone attached to the handlebars shows how much power is being fed into the hotels system

Bright idea … an iPhone attached to the handlebars shows how much power is being fed into the hotel’s system

Forget solar panels and wind turbines, a hotel that bills itself as one of the “greenest” in the world has found a new source of renewable energy – its guests.

From next Monday, those staying at the 366-room Crown Plaza Copenhagen Towers will be encouraged to head down to the gym to spend time on its new fleet of electricity-generating exercise bikes. The bikes have iPhones mounted on the handlebars which monitor how much power is being produced and fed into the mains supply of the hotel. Any guest producing 10 watt hours or more will be rewarded with a free meal.

The scheme is a pilot project that will run for a year, and if successful, could be rolled out to all 21 Crowne Plaza hotels in the UK.

“The electric bikes offer our guests the chance to get fit and help power the hotel at the same time,” said Allan Agerholm, the hotel’s general manager. “It will be interesting to see how many guests take part and how much electricity we generate.”

Getting the free meal is surprisingly easy. The hotel’s calculations suggest one guest cycling at 30kmph for an hour will produce around 100 watt hours of electricity, meaning that reaching the threshold for the meal should take only six minutes.

Critics might argue that even those who cycle for a full hour will be making a rather token contribution to the energy use of a huge city hotel – 100 watt hours of energy is only enough to light a single 100 watt bulb for one hour. However the hotel counters that it wanted the target to be “achievable” so as many people as possible take part.

The hotel, which opened in November last year, is attempting to become carbon neutral. It has EU Green Building and Green Key certification and uses a groundwater-based cooling and heating system, low energy lighting and hand dryers, and is covered in solar panels on its south-facing aspects. So will its latest scheme catch on at other hotels around the world?

“Realistically, this isn’t a practical way of generating a useful amount of energy, but I certainly wouldn’t criticise it,” said Alex Randall, a spokesman for the Centre for Alternative Technology. “As a lesson, and a means of public engagement, it’s excellent – if you sit someone on a bike, pedalling hard, and show them they are only generating enough to power one lightbulb or TV, is makes them appreciate how difficult energy is to produce, and therefore why we should be careful not to waste it.”

Honeymoon Tester is Latest Dream Job

April 4, 2010

By A. Pawlowski

The winning couple will be sent to resorts in Africa, Europe, Asia and the United States.

The winning couple will be sent to resorts in Africa, Europe, Asia and the United States.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Travel agency will pay couple to go to romantic destinations for six months and blog about trip
  • Applications have been pouring in from all over the world for “The Ultimate Job”
  • It was partly inspired by Australia’s “Best Job in the World,” which launched others
  • Man recalls spending six months as “wine country lifestyle correspondent” for $60,000

Wanted: Luxury-loving couples available to globetrot for six months and get paid to test out the most romantic wedding and honeymoon destinations around the world.

It’s a hard offer to resist, but what’s being described as “The Ultimate Job” is just the latest in a series of recent dream positions to capture the public’s imagination and serve as a brilliant marketing tool for people and places.

“It’s been sort of crazy,” said Rosemarie Meleady, managing director of RunawayBrideAndGroom.com, describing the response to the new promotion.

The Irish travel agency came up with the idea in part after seeing last year’s blockbuster “Best Job in the World” campaign in Australia.

More than 1,000 couples have already applied for the chance to be sent to resorts in Africa, Europe, Asia and the United States.

The winners will be asked to blog about their experiences a few times a week “when they can get out of the hammock after sipping a glass of champagne,” Meleady said, and write for The Irish Times once a month.

They will also be paid 20,000 euros (about $27,000). Hopefuls have until April 7 to apply for the “horrendous assignment” — as the company teasingly calls it — which starts mid-May.

You don’t have to be Irish to apply, but you do have to tout Ireland as part of the process.

“We’ve had applications from Korea, China, Macedonia, Croatia, India and Saudi Arabia,” Meleady said. “They’re coming in about five every hour — I’m working around the clock.”

There’s also been high interest from the United States, with one couple who is to be married in a California vineyard this summer vowing to cancel their plans if they win so they can get hitched in Ireland instead.

How it started

The travel dream job craze exploded onto the scene in January 2009 when Australia’s Tourism Queensland announced it was seeking someone to spend six months on Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef.

The person was to be paid almost $140,000 to blog about the experience and promote tourism in the area — or the “Best Job in the World.”

Ben Southall, a 34-year-old British man, beat out 34,000 other applicants for the gig, which ended earlier this year.

“I think I’ve done more in these six months than I’ve done in the previous 34 years of my life. To be able to do this sort of thing, in this location, and report on it can’t really be classed as work,” Southall told CNN as he prepared to return home.

The success of the Tourism Queensland idea inspired several similar dream jobs.

Last fall’s “67 Days of Smiles” campaign by the Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau in Florida paid a couple $25,000 to spend 67 days visiting every theme park and attraction in Orlando and — you guessed it — write about it.

I had a lot of spectacular times, but it was never a vacation
–Hardy Wallace, former wine country lifestyle correspondent

Then there was the “Really Goode Job” created by the Murphy-Goode winery in Healdsburg, California. About 2,400 people applied last spring to become the company’s “wine country lifestyle correspondent” — a person tasked with promoting the winery through social media sites. The six-month gig paid $60,000.

“It was the most fun job I’ve ever had in my life,” said wine aficionado and blogger Hardy Wallace, 36, who was selected for the position just a few months after he was laid off from a sales and marketing job in Atlanta, Georgia.

He knows what you’re thinking: The gig probably amounted to nothing more than sipping wine and visiting a few Web sites, right? Wrong, Wallace said; it was actually a ton of work. In six months, he wrote 200 blog posts, shot 45 videos, sent 7,000 tweets and attended numerous events to promote the winery, he recalled.

“I had a lot of spectacular times, but it was never a vacation,” Wallace said.

The job opened up many doors when it ended last month, and Wallace now permanently lives in Sonoma County, California, splitting his time working for two small wineries he’s always admired, he said.

“A year ago, I was unemployed, and I was trying to figure out how to make this work. And when I think of everything that’s happened in the past year, I’m extremely grateful,” Wallace said.

Allure of travel fuels viral marketing

Some of the companies behind the campaigns are probably very grateful too.

The “Best Job in the World” generated tens of millions of dollars in free publicity for Tourism Queensland thanks to bloggers and media outlets fascinated by the story, said David Meerman Scott, a marketing strategist and author of “The New Rules of Marketing & PR.”

He travels all over the world as a speaker and has been asking audiences in countries like Japan, India, Estonia and Latvia whether they have heard of the Australian campaign. On average, 20 percent of people raise their hands.

“That’s remarkable — that you can do something which doesn’t cost a lot of money, compared to television commercials, and 20 percent of the world … has heard of it,” Scott said.

The chance to go to exotic places was a big selling point in the “Best Job in the World,” and copycats have followed because travel is associated with luxury and it’s something lots of different people can write about, Scott said.

RunawayBrideAndGroom.com can attest to the allure of globetrotting and the power of viral marketing. The company’s Web site has had 100,000 hits since announcing “The Ultimate Job,” Meleady said.

“It snowballed, it’s so exciting,” she added.
