  1. Absolutely one of my favourite kind of articles to read or listen to. There is always something very special about working an idea, hobby or life passion past the testing stage and growing it into a serious business. I think they are starting younger these days. The fourteen year old daughter of my beautiful Bride’s friend also has developed a small enterprise of selling clothing. During the pandemic, the young lady could not venture outside our subdivision because of her age and needed the assistance of her Mom to obtain stock. She replenished inventory with her own funds. She would even show up at the home of friends (our twelve year old included) for them to look at and try on some of her finds. Tee shirts, a good deal on brand new sneakers, you never knew what was next! Way cool that a fourteen year old is earning steady money all during the lockdown. Some adults could take a lesson or two from this young lady.
