Natalie wanted some book from the LACMA museum but we decided not to buy it because we have gotten too many books for her in a short period of time. Natalie's love for books has turned into a serious passion (almost an obsession).
But Natalie doesn't take no as an answer so she came up with an idea: I will make cookies and some cool cards and I will sell them so I can buy the book with that money. We said OK.
With Bill's help she made a big bunch of cookies. Then with Diego's assistance she tried to sell them in front of our house. This was her pitch: Delicious cookies for 1 dollar and summer cards for 50 cents !! And this was Diego's pitch: YES! buy these delicious cookies! Absolutely for free! Every time he said that Natalie had to correct him.
There wasn't a single soul on the street but a neighbor came and bought one cookie and one card. So at the right time Bill came to the house to pick up something. Seeing the situation in the kid's sales department he thought that Natalie should bring the cookies and cards to his office where there were some potential customers. She did it and guess what? Sold out! All the merchandise was gone in a couple of minutes.
Today I took the kids to the museum so Natalie could get her book and a gift for Diego. I felt very proud of Natalie. I see a good business woman in the future and someone who will get things done no matter what. She inspires me everyday :)
