Entrepreneurship 101.

I don't know quite what it is, but expose my kids to something, and they are keen as mustard to do it themselves.

Go to a dinosaur exhibit - suddenly we're drawing, talking and wanting to watch movies about dinosaurs.

Read about superheroes - suddenly we're (Jack, mostly) dressing up as superheros.

Watch Toy Story - suddenly cowboys and spacemen are the go.

What you are about to see is what happened after we took the car through a carwash...


Yes, it happened. Last Saturday. With an incredibly reluctant father who was forced to admit...IT WAS FUN!

Don't know if you can see the price - $1! And we used polish. Wow, that's a bargain!

Our biggest problem was that the people who stopped by seemed to think we were selling bikes and scooters. Nooo. Those bikes were our own that I had Kylie and Jack practice on while we waited for customers.

And we waited...

And waved at the people going by...

And called out to every bike that rode past...


I paced the washing of our bikes and scooters because I suspected it would be slow.

And it was...

So wifey sent out a text:

And one family turned up with five bikes/scooters. We were in business! What with the neighbours two scooters, those five and wifey paying for the wash her bike had without her knowledge, we ended the day with a grand total of $8!

Not bad for a first go. Best of all, it really was fun!

Great idea, Kylie!
