Default Two kiddos, each with a new business

Hello!

Well, this is going to be a busy summer!

I have two kiddos who have started businesses. The oldest (my son, 17) has started with Mia Bella. My daughter (15) is working Jamberry Nails and has an Etsy store.

And......they both are officially kicking off their new businesses this week!

Has anyone else had two kids going into different businesses? Or have you helped a kid build a business?

I have the feeling it's going to be very interesting, to say the least.

I didn't know anyone under 18 could do direct sales! That's pretty awesome. If that's the case when my kids get older I would rather them do direct sales over flipping burgers at McDonalds!

I would also check to see if they can contract with those companies under the age of 18.

That is exciting, though I'm with Mia Bella and you have to be 18. You would have to sign up as if you were the distributor until he turns 18.

Best of luck to your kids.

Yes, I'm aware of the fact that they are under 18.

I'm the one who signed up with the companies, but they'll be the ones who are working them (with my help, of course).

Hey! Good to see you!

Yes, I think she'll like it. I'll be working with her a lot, but she's already been wearing the wraps and showing them off - so she's off to a great start.

My 13 yo has had her photography business for about a year. She mainly sells at vendor events, etsy and has been commissioned by a couple local businesses to do local shots for their lobbies.

My 18 yo is with Steeped Tea to help her pay for college.

Train up a child in the way they should go :-)

That is so wonderful Shay!! Entrepreneurship at a young age can be so beneficial to them all through life. Teaches them to be organized, communicate with people, budget their money, and know the more they put into their business, the more they will get out of it.

My 17 yo daughter was talking to me recently about possibly joining Mia Bella too! She already had the taste of going out and trying to find a summer job.. not much luck. Even though it says 18 years old on the application, they can actually become a distributor at 16 & 17 themselves as long as the family is involved in the business.

Best wishes to you and your family

Alison

I love hearing about other moms having kids involved in business!

Today was fun! It's always nice to see kiddos excited about entrepreneurship.
