6n8yroldsBrothers are Entrepreneurs, Change Agents and Authors at 6 and 8 Years Old

When they were 8 & 6 years old Jeremiah and Joshua West showed the world that they were caring, kind, and amazing young boys. They are published authors. They are philanthropists. They are motivating kids all over the country to help those that need it the most. These two young men from Greece, NY showed us what it means to give back and truly be a helpful person.

Jeremiah and Joshua knew that they wanted to help people in need but they also knew that they wanted to inspire other kids to do the same. They wrote children’s books in a series called “Champions of Change”. The books are all about learning how to save money, how to earn money, and how to give back to those in need. The cover depicts the West brothers helping a homeless man by giving him food. They have even come up with initiatives to help other kids become interested in volunteering for different events throughout the year.

11yroldThis Boy Will Amaze You: He’s a Business Owner and Gentleman at 11 Years Old

 Mosiah Bridges is no ordinary 11 year old. He refers to himself as NBT. What does that stand for? Next Big Thing. And that is exactly what he is. Lester Holt from TODAY said that Bridges was precocious, well-dressed, and very talented. So what does he do that makes him so talented and will make him the next big thing? He owns his own company.

Mosiah started the company, Mo’s Bows when he was just 9 years old. He is a stylish dresser and felt that others should be just as stylish as he is. He began hand making bow ties and the company flourished from there. He has sold thousands of his bow ties already. His grandmother taught him how to sew when he was very young and it has taken off from there.

These boys now work for a living at ages where most of us didn’t have a care except to go to school and try to color within the lines. is having them work legal? is it healthy? Do people even care? The parents had to be a driving force or how else wold they have gotten to be known so what does this say about parenthood? Are children now another way of bringing money into the household? Celebrities have done it so why not the common person. There is one thing when a child has talent but when it comes to taking a child’s hobby and turning it into a business can anyone really say there will be a balance with making money and having a childhood? What are your thoughts?
