The daughter of two entrepreneurs, Asya Gonzalez wanted to follow in her family's footsteps.

''I remember asking my Dad why my uncle couldn't come with us on spontaneous trips, and he said because he works at an office,'' Gonzalez recalled. ''I knew right then that I wanted to have freedom, make my own money and make my own rules. You can't do that climbing the corporate ladder ... as my Dad says.''

At 13, Gonzalez launched Stinky Feet Gurlz, a company that designs, markets and sells 1940s-inspired t-shirts and apparel.

Her company also donates a portion of every shirt sold to She's Worth It!, a nonprofit organization she founded, dedicated to ending human trafficking and child sex slavery.

'' 'Buy a shirt, save a child.' That's our motto,'' she said.

The company expects to make $20,000 a month beginning next year. ''Most adults like to help and give advice so be open to it,'' she said. "And above all, have fun!''
