My 11 Year Old CFO


So my 11 year old daughters idea of a fun summer camp experience is to go to Business School.

Have I not shown her the joy of swimming in a lake?  Of going on amazing walks through forests?  How fantastically ticklish it is to catch a gecko and observe it's amazing hands and cool lookin' head?

For the second summer in a row, my pink lovin', future prize winning graphic artist, has chosen to go to a summer "camp" called JA Biztown.  (JA = Junior Achievement)  While at this camp she will learn how to balance a check book, understand the workings of being a CFO and CEO of local businesses and take part in her fellow employees responsibility of making sure the business she is assigned to makes a profit.  And, at the end of the week, if your business has not made a profit, figure out why and how to do better next time.

I mentioned she was 11 years old, right?

Honestly,  if Rob and I didn't think this was pretty darn cool we wouldn't let her go.  But, here's the thing, she absolutely LOVES this!!!

This program is for 10 - 14 year olds and I get a kick out of seeing how some children choose to wear little business suits. It's adorable.  Today she interviewed for 3 jobs she would like to have and tomorrow she finds out which one she was chosen for.  Perhaps I should start preparing her resume now.
