A knock on the door, saw an entrepreneur of the future make her first sale
I have heard hundreds of stories over the years about how some of the world's most successful entrepreneurs started out as children, making first few dollars when they were still in primary school.
I wasn't such a good entrepreneur as a child and the best I could come up with was busking at my parents bedroom door whereby they would pay me a couple of dollars to go away.
Tonight, my neighbours daughter Angelina came over with her friend Alex and asked to play with my dog Pip.
After playing for a little while, throwing toys all over my apartment, she started to chat about how she asked her mother if she could put a flyer in everyone's letterbox to ask if they needed help ironing. Her mother said it was a good idea because she could meet new people and help them.
I suggested that instead of doing that, why don't you walk my dog for an hour two days a week after school and I will pay you.
She asked her Mum who said yes, so now I have a dog walker and she has her first job. Great outcome.
She says, " I just want to meet new people and help them." How cute!
