Hi, I'm the 14 year old CEO of Two and Fro. My friends and family call me DD. I suppose I've always had an entrepreneurial mindset. My mind for business all started in the 2nd grade at the ripe age of 7. Looking up to my mom as the owner of her own Speech private practice, I decided that I was going to have my own business too. I folded up a paper in a square shape and wrote push in red for girls and in blue for boys. I began charging $1 per push and $2 for your own, unique push button. I remember when I first got out there with my product. I was nervous but also excited to make my own money. I sold my product by playing with it at the lunch table as other kids looked on. They saw how I pushed a piece of paper and it bounced back. They just had to try it! I was a on a roll! I made $11, with very minimal investment! Like most 7 year olds with that type of big money, I blew it all at the Dollar Tree. I felt like a million bucks walking out of Dollar Tree with my own bag of candy and my own receipt. What a great feeling! It was all short-lived because 3 weeks later my business had to shut down due to competition ( the other kids started making push buttons for themselves). I should've had them sign a non-compete. Lol!
