Has your preteen ever come up with an idea to be an entrepreneur? Mine has..LOL

Joshua. Joshua. Joshua. (He's 10 btw)
I am glad for his ambition. And I dare not laugh as he stood before me and told me his idea of the day. I'm actually suprised at how well thought out his idea is.
He came home from school today with a huge drawing in red and black ink on his forearm.It says "MOM" and is decorated with what he called barbed wire. Before I could say anything about him writing on himself he starts in about how he made some money at school today. He has decided to start his own "tattoo business". He brought out a bunch of colored pens he had neatly wrapped in a paper towel inside his bookbag.He was CHARGING kids at recess today to draw "tattoos" on them..50 cents per tattoo. He said, the 1st one was free.The 100th customer gets a 20 cent discount. Like I said, glad for his ambition,lol. I just hope I don't start getting calls from parents,lol.

  • Encourage is inginuity and creativity. Help him talk about his ideas and be sure to explain there are laws and rules that block some ideas without a lot of paperwork. Just remember, someday he could be president.
