I remember last year that I thought of giving Dindin a wallet. But hubby said jokingly that it might teach her to put money there to spend. So we thought about the cash register because that would place her as a businesswoman like her grandmother. After all, she sees her grandma behind the cash register everyday. So we thought that would condition her mind to do business rather than just be a shopper.
Not sure if that really has an effect but well, there is really no harm, right?
Anyway, yesterday, when we went to my parents’ house in Tangub, we passed by a neighbor’s store that was selling fish crackers in wholesale packages. We thought of buying a kilo and repacking it in order to teach Dindin about having a business.
This morning, Dindin started selling already. She was shy to those she did not know, but well, that is okay. She sold some packs and is happy. At least now, she is calling herself a “businesswoman” and a “business expert”. Cool. I explain to her the sales, profit, the loan that she has to repay for her capital, and debt. haha The problem was, she got sad when nobody was buying. LOL She wanted a fast-selling business. LOL
When I told her that she has to repay me for her loan, she said, “What? Repay the loan? That’s so funny.” LOL
This is not really something serious. But at least, Dindin just played the part of a businesswoman and she played it well. She might not understand everything, but at least, it’s training her early.
Well, great things start from small beginnings, right?
