Money & Work: My oldest daughter is thirteen. She began an egg-selling business when she was eleven. She kept business records on the computer. She also has to break her money down into four categories: giving, savings, reinvestment (buying chicken feed), and spending. If she decides she has too many eggs to wash, she has to hire her sisters or brother to help her.
Our second-oldest daughter is eleven, and she started working last year to learn to milk dairy goats. She is planning on beginning her business in a few months when our does birth. She will sell our extra goat milk. We wouldn't let her begin the business until she could milk the goats herself.
We also have an 8-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son. Who knows what kind of business they will come up with?!
