So my 12 year old is desperate to earn money - he wants things we are not prepared to pay for.  So, as a 12 year old, you cannot work in the formal employment sector.  Umpiring and time keeping jobs only start at 13 and 14.  so, yesterday, I came home to discover that he and his friends cycled to Staples, had business cards printed for their new "leaves be gone" business.

Within hours, he and his friends distributed 400 business cards around the area, and had 10 people sign up for his leaf raking enterprise.

He negotiated with the manager at Staples, to put their logo on the cards, and the manager did not charge them for the business cards.  I phoned the manager last night to thank him for supporting the kids' little business.  

The thing I love about being here, is that my 12 year old did all this on his own, using the buses and his bike to get around!
