Willow Tufano appears on the surface to be any normal and happy-go-lucky teenager. The 14 year-old, however, is very different from the majority of her peers. She was keeping something extremely big from her loving parents. She spent months and months carefully mapping out her plans before revealing them to her mother and father. It’s safe to say that young Willow is definitely a shrewd and smart cookie.
Things all started when Willow got the idea to collect items that were available for free on the popular website Craigslist. The teenager would collect the items and then proceed to sell them. After a little time had passed, she had finally saved a bit of money. That compelled her to visit auctions and purchase inexpensive finds that were available. The girl occasionally even retrieved things that were hanging out in the garbage! It took several months of dedication and strong effort, but Willow managed to get an impressive $6,000 fund.
Willow’s parents initially were extremely confused and overwhelmed by the whole thing. They truly didn’t get what Willow did. Her father scolded her. He told her that he spent his youth delivering newspapers, not selling things. Willow’s mother simply didn’t know what to think. She was absolutely speechless.
Willow, amazingly enough, managed to stun her mother and father yet again. She had a huge idea cooking up in that ingenious head of hers. No one can deny that this young girl is genuinely ambitious! She wanted to purchase a home. She was determined to buy a residence that cost $100,000. The market shifted dramatically, however, and the price of the property dropped all the way to just $16,000. This price seemed a lot more realistic and manageable to Willow. The intelligent girl bartered with the owners of the home. They were then willing to sell it to her for a mere $12,000. Willow’s mother and father couldn’t deny that they admired her intense determination at this point. Because of that, they decided that they would assist her with the purchase of the house.
Willow currently is the owner of a home that calls for $700 rent on a monthly basis. She’s actually the property’s landlord. Can you imagine meeting a landlord who is still years away from actually even being able to get a driver’s license? We truly live in a wild and crazy world.
The teen isn’t only a talented money saver, either. She’s also an immensely capable home design expert. She actually managed to renovate the home’s interior design all on her own. No one helped her with this process.
Famous comedian and talk show host Ellen Degeneres managed to hear about this incredible and dedicated young girl. She was so taken by Willow’s smarts and efforts that she decided to call her to be a guest on her popular daytime television program. When Willow made her appearance on the famed show, Ellen gave her a nice “little” present. That present was an ACE gift card that had a value of $10,000! Ellen gave Willow this card to enable her to take on additional renovations for the residence.
We can’t wait to see what Willow does with the property next. It seems like the sky is the limit. What can be in store for Willow’s future? She’s already accomplished so much and she’s not even 15 years in age. At this rate, she may be able to take over the universe someday. We’re definitely rooting for her. We’re sure her loving parents are rooting for her as well. The world is definitely her oyster.
