I want to share some good news with you.
Since this site went live a couple of weeks ago we've had quite a few visitors. And just recently we welcomed our first new customers!
Suddenly, my dream of owning a business is coming true!
You might be wondering how all of this started. I'm going to be 10 in July, but even when I was really little I had an obsession with ordering things online. I'm not very proud of this, but when I was almost 5 I ordered a bunch of stuff from Amazon (not toys...electronics, like a Mac computer and an Amazon Echo.). I set up my own account on Amazon and...um..."borrowed" my grandma's credit card to pay for everything. I won't go into how much trouble I got into, but it was a lot. And I learned a good lesson because my grandma made me return all the stuff I bought. I had to go in with her to the UPS store where my swimming teacher from summer camp worked, and I was really embarrassed and afraid my grandma would tell him about what I did. She didn't...but she could have!
I'm telling you this story because it explains a lot about why I've wanted to own my own online business. I love to be able to order things online. I love websites and coupon codes and getting packages in the mail. And I wanted to have a business where I could be in charge of all those things! I just didn't know how to get started.
This past spring when I was stuck at home during the COVID-19 quarantine, my grandma signed me up for some classes on a site call "Outschool." You can find classes there on any subject you can imagine. One of the classes I took was called, "Kidpreneur: Starting Your Own Booming Business." The class is taught by Ms. Natalie Hines. She is an awesome teacher, and she helped all the kids in the class come up with a business idea, put together a plan and launch their business during the 8-week class. You can find out more about her at Outschool or at KidPreneur Project.
Thank you, Ms. Natalie! I would definitely not have this dream come true if I had not taken your class!
Stay chill my friends,
