My mom calls me her little entrepreneur. Would you like to know why? It’s because I have so many ideas of how to take the things I love doing and make money with them! I like making money to save for vacations and trips. I also want to adopt endangered animals through the World Wildlife Foundation to help save them.

I have had many ideas of businesses I would like to start, but the first one that I have done is my mother’s helper business. I like playing with other kids and thought that I could use that to make money. I started my mother’s helper business by putting a notice up on the bulletin board outside our kitchen. I offered to keep peoples’ kids occupied for just $2.50 an hour. I had my first job soon after and made $5.00. So far I have only watched one child in our building, but she is really nice and sweet. We have a lot of fun when I watch her. The best part of this job is getting paid to have fun with children.

I have recently become addicted to finger knitting which gave me an idea for another amazing business! I am going to sell finger knit scarves, bracelets, and headbands. In night care, three of the children have already asked me for scarves. I still need to get the prices right for my “Finger Knitting Corner,” but the ones for the kids are on the house so I have been busy working on them.

I have many ideas that have to do with things I enjoy. Do you have fun things you like to do? Maybe you could somehow turn it into a business, too.
