11-year-old invents backpack to stop bullying in schools

Have you heard? Makai Samuels- Paige (who was a 6th grader at the time) invented an Anti- Bullying Backpack.  Makai was unfortunately bullied in school because of his size and height. “I’m not one of the tallest sixth-graders,” said Samuels-Paige. “I’m one of the shorter ones, so when I get picked on, it makes me feel like I’m nothing, and I want to change that,” he said.

And that he did! Makai Samuels- Paige patented a backpack that has 2 camera, WIFI, GPS, & Walkie- Talkie system. This little genius has blazed the trail and found a way to solve a problem plaguing children all over the world.

Thank you, Makai Samuels- Paige for pushing past opposition and using your genius for good!

Plan for the absolute worst!

When opening my business, I looked at the finances, supplies, décor, and community connections, but the only thing I did not spend enough time on was the WORST-CASE SCENARIO.

The one thing I wish I had prepared for was all the horrible things that happens while running a business such as:

  • Unreliable employees
  • Building malfunctions
  • Crazy illogical customers

When planning a business, it’s easy to take note of all the wonderful things you will be doing as a business, but it is crucial that you understand that people are crazy. It may seem as if I’m being silly or facetious, but I am being serious. In order to run a successful business, you must plan for handling unfathomable situations.

What would you do if your loss power in your building? How would you handle a customer complaint? How do you handle lazy employees?  Can you afford to fire them and pay more for reliable employees? How can you control how your business is perceived on social media? 

I believe wonderful things will happen in your business, but in order to survive you must consider the contrary things that happens as well. Today, take time and plan for the worst so that life can huff and puff but will not blow your business down.

Starting a business is like having a child.

In the same way that a mother gains new life as they learn of pregnancy. An entrepreneur also gains a new wind creating a business.

Personally, I have opened an early learning academy and let me be the one to tell you this has been no easy journey!! You can plan for years but there is nothing like owning your own business, you know with rent… employees… and most of all customers. Turning my sign from closed to open was scary because I didn’t know what I would be like as the owner of my baby dream.

I had a similar feeling when the doctor looked at me and said that I could go home with my child. While I was excited to go home, I was scared! I wanted to give my child every great, beautiful, and loving thing worthy of the majestic life I was trusted with.  I wanted to be knowledgeable, caring, and incredible as a parent, and that same intention is how I opened the early learning academy. I wanted to present my community with the best, owning a business at the age of 32 I became the parent of a fulfilled dream, but opening my business even being a parent with intention was difficult and pleasant.

Join me on my owners journey I will share the truth about living your dream. I am a mother, wife, sister, friend…. And entrepreneur.
