LEARN HOW THIS CHILD SET UP HIS OWN BUSINESS

I recently learned about a child who has set up his own business designing and manufacturing socks using positive affirmations.

As you may know, I encourage my own child to make money. I believe that encouraging children and showing them that they can create their own income should they choose, is an important part of creating a healthy relationship with money for them.

Children are naturally creative and sometimes have some fantastic ideas.   Great inventions need research and I wrote a post recently about where you can get help with making money from inventions which you can read here.

So, back to the child who designs his own socks……..

Nine year old Safin started his designs for Socky Wocky at his kitchen table and now has a website, http://www.sockywocky.co.uk/ where he sells his “really cool, bright and fun socks”.

Safin’s mum does all the admin, but the ideas and designs, including the company logo come from Safin himself.

I had the privilege of interviewing this intelligent young man to find out more.  Read on to hear more about Safin in his own words.  Prepare to be inspired!

HOW TO SET UP A MARKET STALL

Have you ever wanted to set up a market stall but don’t know how to go about it? This is just one of the things I have done in my colourful self-employed career. I set it up with a friend and it was great fun. I must confess it felt a little bit like playing shops!

I loved choosing and buying in new products to sell (it helped that it was dress jewellery and handbags!) I got a great buzz from making that first sale every day.

There can be a great community spirit amongst the traders and I loved being part of that. It’s a good way to get out of the house and meet new people. Another bonus was the bacon sandwich breakfasts from the local café!

Today I am going to show you how you can run a market stall and have your own business too! (more…)

WHERE TO FIND WHOLESALERS

When I started on my selling journey I thought it would be easy to find wholesalers, how wrong I was! Not knowing where to start, I found myself going round and round in circles. Have you ever found this?

During my journey to find wholesalers it felt like it was a great secret that nobody wanted to share. I was constantly frustrated at finding nothing and getting nowhere. I used to think “surely it can’t be that difficult, can it”? (more…)
