Nico is a wild 3 year-old with an incredible passion for soap. One day, his nanny, Bella, brought over soap-making equipment as a casual activity. He was in love. He passed out his soaps generously to all of his friends and loved how happy people became.
Nico started asking to make soap every day. With time, his skill and his inventory grew. Eventually, he had given all of his friends soaps but the desire to make people happy with this soaps remained.
Nico makes soap three to four times per week. He makes his creations from start to finish with the supervision of an adult. Nico packages his soaps himself.
Where is the Money Going:
Nico is responsible for paying back his parents for the initial investment for the equipment and supplies but the remaining money is being deposited into a college fund for him.
There is a college fund set up for Nico, but he will also have a physical piggy bank for discretionary funds he can use as he sees fit. This is in an experiment in both entrepreneurship and finance, as well as being a fun and creative activity.
