Stepping back from traditional social and academic milestones can prove to be challenging and stressful for children while coping during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Canadian Red Cross has been utilizing their resources to support local communities and non-profit organizations across Canada during the Covid-19 pandemic. Build a Biz Kids has been immensely fortunate in receiving grants this past year from the Red Cross, allowing us to provide over 1000 children across Canada with access to practical online education.
Build a Biz Kids was co-founded by Leah Coss and Braden Ricketts using their values and beliefs as the foundation of the Company, their many ideas as the construction plan with an endless elevation, and their inspiration and drive as the mortar holding everything together.
There’s a lot of things here that you don’t learn at school and I had no idea they ever existed before I took this program. It also, it teaches kids how to fend for themselves instead of their parents buying them stuff and learning to earn money and learning how to do this before they grow up. Well I didn’t really get a lot of customers at in the first 30 minutes so I was kind of worried ’cause I didn’t make any money, but then my uncle came and he told me to upgrade my elevator pitch and now I have a lot of customers
My favorite part of the program, it was honestly, it was really hard when things kept popping up when I was under a lot of stress during the time where I was preparing. I had to come up with a last minute resort but my favorite part was the best feeling when you overcome that and when a customer comes up, and all you’ve been through is just for this one moment where you’re selling. It’s amazing! When like yes, OK here’s your money, feels awesome because you know all of these things you struggled through.
My favorite part of the program would probably be during market day because market day is when you get sales. You’re so happy but then people don’t come and you have to prepare yourself to get ready for people saying no to you and being denied. Everybody should take this program because it gets you prepared for real life. people are gonna say no to you, walk by you and say I’m gonna come back later and just run. So it’s a great program to get you ready for people to say no and still say thank you.
