Woman: Is this Alyssa’s mother?
Woman: This is Alyssa’s 1st grade teacher, Ms. ____. I don’t want you to take this the wrong way because Alyssa is an excellent student.
Woman: I also don’t want to squash her entrepreneurial spirit and ambition.
Woman: Do you know that Alyssa makes macramé bracelets?
Me: Yes, and she is very good at it. .
Woman: I agree, she does a fantastic job. But Alyssa is bringing them to school and selling them to her classmates. They are using their lunch money to buy the bracelets.
Woman: She is quite motivated and ambitious, but can you direct her to not sell them at school any more?
Me: I sure will. Thank you for calling.
Alyssa: Oh lots Mommy! I’ve been taking them to school!
Alyssa: Yes, I’m selling them to my friends. Everyone wants one.
Me: Well, that is just too cool. They are really very pretty.
Alyssa: That’s why everyone wants one Mommy!
Me: That’s a great idea, but we’re going to have to find somewhere else for you to sell them because you can’t sell them at school any more.
Me: Well, your friends are giving you their lunch money and they are getting too hungry. They can’t eat your beautiful bracelets.
Alyssa: (laughing) I didn’t think about that Mommy.
Me: No biggie. I’m so proud of you!!! Will you make me one too? I’ll buy it!
Me: How much do they cost?
Me: So how much money have you made with your business so far?
Alyssa: I’m rich! I’ve got $45.00!!!
That’s my girl!!!
