Legacy. This is part of my legacy. I want to use these summers that I get them to not only have fun and connect with them on a different level but also to dig deep. Teach them the things that I would have wanted to teach my own kids!
Some examples: cleaning, cooking, budgeting, how to earn money, laughter, speaking in public to adults, the art of the hustle and not in a bad way. I also want them to appreciate home more!! So boredom with no fun cable or electronics is a thing here.
My niece is learning to earn money as well! She is getting up early with me everyday. She is in charge or many things around the house. She has been organizing things, cleaning things, cooking and bossing me around. She is also doing odd jobs for other business owners as well! She has walked many a mile hanging door hangers, cut out annoying stickers, done filing and so much more. She is learning the value of money. She is learning about life. She is a little young for a real job hence why she is doing more around the house and office and less outside of it! She has started a vehicle detailing company where she cleans vehicles for clients while they are here. She has also decided that her big goal for the summer is a laptop! Let’s see if she gets there!! We go for long drives looking at fancy houses every night and talk. We talk about life and the future and silly things. We dream, we laugh, we plan.
And no they are not only working this summer! We are also flying to Winnipeg to visit family and go to a football game this month! I am also going to take at least the niece to a Tony Robbins conference. I am curious to see what she will think of that…. We are going to festivals, we are binge watching Netflix a few times, we will go to markets and play games and laugh a lot.
This. This is my legacy. My “kids”. My clients. Their futures.
