I guess it's not every 14-year-old that wakes up, stumbles out of bed, goes to the kitchen, and makes jam. Let's just say Fraser is special. Fraser Doherty now runs his own company, SuperJam. He was taught to make jam by his grandmother at the age of 14. He later began making jam at home, selling it to neighbours, at farmers' markets, and to local shops.

Fraser became the youngest ever supplier to Waitrose, a major U.K. supermarket chain in 2007. And SuperJam currently supplies over 2,000 supermarkets around the world.

Fraser's company is estimated to be worth over £1 million. I guess he's not done too badly for himself.

I got the chance to ask him a few questions about his life and work.

Question: It's not every 14-year-old that wants to start up their own business. What inspired you to do that at such a young age?

Fraser: I was inspired to start making jam by my grandmother. She was cooking jam in the kitchen one afternoon, and I got really excited about it and started cooking jam as a hobby in my spare time. The neighbours soon started buying my homemade jam, and then I began selling it at farmers' markets and to small shops.

Question: Were you exposed to entrepreneurship as a child? Did you have any family members who influenced you in that way?

Fraser: My parents and family weren't entrepreneurs, but they always let me try out new things and do whatever I wanted to do in my spare time. I was always interested in making a bit of extra pocket money and tried out all kinds of ideas. My favourite story of all is when I hatched out some chickens from eggs that I got from a local farm. I kept the eggs warm on top of the telly, and amazingly they hatched. I sold the chickens to the neighbours and that was my first ever little business.

Question: On those impossible days of starting up, what motivated you to keep going? Fraser: I was motivated by a feeling that I was doing something worthwhile with my life and by

the fact that I was enjoying what I was doing every step of the way.

Question: How do you manage the growth of your company?

Fraser: The business is growing very fast, and we're launching new products in new stores all the time. The most important things are that we have stayed focused on the idea of making 100% pure fruit jams, have focused on keeping the retailers happy, and have improved every aspect of the business as we're moving forwards.

Question: Excluding yours, what company or business do you admire most?

Fraser: I admire entrepreneurs like the late Anita Roddick and other entrepreneurs who have run businesses with not only an aim of making money, but an aim of making the world a better place. Inspired by companies like theirs, I set up a charitable project over a year ago, running tea parties for lonely elderly people. We have now run over 120 tea parties, with live music, dancing, and scones and tea; some parties attracted over 500 guests. It feels great to be able to put something positive like that into the world.

missed texts and information over the past two days.

records and teased me to dance with him.
