Most young children spend every minute of every day having fun. They tend to play with their friends outside, play video games, or watch TV. However, there are also those who spend their free time working, just like the McBrides brothers, who are 12, 10, and 9 years old.
Believe it or not, Marcus, Travell and Marcelino have started their own business, the 3 Amigos Lawncare Service, and they are very good at what they do. So far, around 40 families from their home town Saginaw, Michigan, use their services regularly.
It all started when the oldest brother, Marcus, told his mother Terri Reed of his idea to set up a business and she loved it. “Marcus told me that he wanted to start his own business doing lawn care work,” Terri told Michigan Live. “So, the following day, I got up and I purchased all their equipment and their work clothes.”
The brothers gained the trust of their neighbors because they are hard-working and dedicated. What’s most, now that the summer comes to an end, they are planning on expanding the services they offer and tend to include clearing leaves and snow among the rest.
Mom Terri is extremely proud of her sons. She is an owner of a number of rental properties in the area and now that her boys saved enough money by working hard all summer, they put it into an investment property.
“They are enjoying it,” Terri said. “They have their weekly pay days and everything else goes into their business accounts.”
Great job, boys, we wish you a lot of success with your business in the future.
