Going into business as a 6th grader.
I realized at a very young age that business was my forte. It provided me a place to take on new challenges, make the world a better place, develop lasting friendships and all the while make money.
I thought.......... How can I make money under my own umbrella? (I had already mowed grass, installed frog ponds, built work benches and tree forts, sold candy bars and more) I wanted to make some money like adults were making......
I shared my desire to start a small business with my parents at the age of 12. Spring time came around and my mother told me that I should aerate not only my yard, but all of the neighbors’ yards whom in previous years had shared the cost of an aeration rental. I thought that fit perfectly for a number of reasons outlined below.

What I learned and will apply in many ventures yet to come ---
This small venture proved to be a starting point for many more to come! I did not make huge amounts of money, but for a middle school and early high school kid it was not bad!
