We have a hard working 13 year old in this house right now.
Over spring break, he started his own business, passing out flyers to the neighbors with pricing on jobs he'll do. Included on that list.......trash can removal/replace, landscaping, pet and house sitting, etc.
He got his first job quickly and worked 15 hours over the past two days.
He has more disposable income than I do right now!
Many months ago, we started him on managing his allowance to include all social events and expenses for the two week period until he gets paid again. He's learned some lessons and has worked hard at grasping this important part of life. And, with a taste of earning money, he wanted more.....thus, this new business venture.
He already has two more jobs lined up and I'm sure there are more to come.
So proud of this kid!
He's 2.5 years from driving and is getting a good start on money management. And, he's looking for more opportunities to earn.
And, he's done all of this while playing on the middle school basketball team, maintaining a 4.0, continuing his CCD studies, and handling his own chores around here.
Good work, Carter Starnes!
