My son’s just decided to start his own computing business. He’s applied for an A.B.N. (Australian Business Number) and he’s started telling people about it and making his own business cards. I think it’s great!! He’ll learn so much! He can do this as part of his yr 11 studies, still work at McDonald’s and get Youth Allowance – he just has to continue declaring his earnings. To me it’s the perfect homeschool project. Not that I don’t take it seriously as an ongoing business I do. I think that he’ll do extremely well if he commits himself to it. I can refer people to him and give him any help that he needs to do the jobs too.
This is an answer to prayer, and it came as a solution I’d never thought of. I’ve been asking Jesus what I should do – should I continue building my own business or focus on Teen Challenge? So with Doug starting his own business I can refer computer jobs to him, have more time for teaching him and Jess, do more with Teen Challenge and still teach the Computing For Mums courses.
