A Completely Commercial Post For the Young Turk


If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that the online nickname I use for my son is The Young Turk. He is a total up and coming entrepreneur (you can read about his company and his mission statement here). So when his Cub Scout Troop announced The Popcorn Sale, he wasted no time in telling the Popcorn Kernel that he was going to be the #1 salesman this year.

Now, I am a firm believer in having the child do all the work involved in selling stuff. And he knows he is in charge of all the live in person selling (though I DO go with him).

The online world is a little trickier – and quite frankly a little scarier – for him to navigate on his own. He is only seven.  So Mom’s helping out with this part just a bit.

Below is a message he recorded for this page. I didn’t help him write it and this is the first take.

If you want to order, the link and IMPORTANT instructions are also below. Oh, and everyone who does order will get a PERSONAL thank you phone call from The Young Turk. Because that is also a part he can do.

And thank you for indulging me in this completely commercial post. 🙂
