Student proves a quick earner, thanks to advice from many CEOs

Douglas Barry was all of 12 when he ditched his dream of becoming an archaeologist.

It was too much hard work, with all that digging.

Instead, he decided managing archaeologists would be the way to go.

"I began to wonder if it might be better to just sit in a nice office … while I still got to reap the benefits of the dig," Barry, now 18, wrote in his book, "Wisdom for a Young CEO," a collection of career-advice letters from chief executives across the country.

Ah, spoken like a true chief executive officer in the making.
