Appolonya, The 8 Year Old Entrepreneur!

My daughter, Appolonya, is such an inspiration to me!  That girl is always thinking about how she can help others and how

she can earn money.  She picks things she loves to make something that could help others and to make her some money.  She listens to Dave Ramsey… can you tell??  🙂    She has such an entrepreneurial spirit.  She already collects magazines for recycling from our community every Friday and turns them in to a local retailer for resale in the used market.  Last summer, she set up a lemonade stand in our front yard and sold her homemade cookie bites and made almost $100!  It’s was hard to be excited when she made more at the lemonade stand than I did at the yard sale!

For Christmas, she asked for and received about a dozen kids’ business idea books and has already begun reading through them.

I recently visited a chocolate making class presented at the Henry County Public Library (which was fantastic by the way) and I returned home teaching my 8-year-old daughter how to make what we did in class.  She was so excited!  The first thing out of her mouth was “Oh, thank you Mommy!  I can make these so people can buy them from me to give to their sweethearts!”  So, here’s a look at what she can do and how much she charges…










So here’s your opportunity -support the 8 year old entrepreneur!
