9 year old Autistic Social Entrepreneur

Begin doing what you want to do now. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand, and melting like a snowflake. — Marie Ray

Good News of the Day:
Kent Melville’s father was skeptical when his son first said that he wanted to use the profits from his successful summer lemonade stand to start his own soda company. Aaron Melville, who teaches business classes at a local college, did not believe his 9-year-old autistic son was ready to run his own business. He told Kent to wait until he was older. His son’s response brought tears to his eyes and change to his heart: “Dad, I have everything I need right now, but there are lots of other kids with autism that can’t do the things they want or need. I want to be able to help them get some of the things they want with the money we earn. Can’t we start now? I don’t want to wait.”
