  • “Fun time” is when songs are written, novels are penned, paintings are created, recipes are developed, forts are built, musical instruments come to life, and businesses are started.
  • My brother had a passion for firestarting and campfires and lighters when he was younger….and now he wants to pursue glass-blowing!
  • My 5th grade son ran his restaurant from his little tent in the backyard.
  • Selena Schulz age 9, wrote and self-published a book last summer titled “A Bed A Buck A Buddy; Cici’s Amazing Birthday”.
  • My son is making around fifty dollars per week for about an hours work with his snack business.
  • Austin wrote a check on his 16th birthday for a white four door 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 with money earned from his Sporty Citrus business.
