Entrepreneurs’ Day at school. Kids are selling samoosas, boerie rolls, sweets, cupcakes, biryani. What are you going to do, Jess?
“Me and Aik are going to give dance lessons, Dad. Hip Hop”.
OK. She made a poster, cut a CD, cleared a classroom.
And nobody showed up. I hung around, thinking Oh well, every outcome is a lesson. We learn something from everything.
Then her teacher said “Jess, you need loud music!” Jess had been waiting for her first customer before starting the music (she’s so polite, this one!).
“Dad, I need the car keys”, she shouts. Out the gate to the car and back with a CD.
Loud music and the customers rolled in. Well played, Mrs Gooding!
They made R440 profit!
