Start a financial education Website marketed at cynical and disaffected teens. Call it "The Motley Catcher in the Rye." There could be "graffiti boards", "five-finger-discount foolmart", "my so-called portfolio." Make The Catcher 50 a list of 50 companies with products heavily consumed by teens -- Nike, Abercrombie & Fitch, Coca-Cola, Philip Morris, Hott Topic, et cetera. Start some portfolios based on cliques: "The Goth Portfolio" (-- bought some SPY today, then drank vodka and watched "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari"), "The Jock Portfolio," and so forth.
