10-year-old entrepreneur starts flourishing business
I started Not Enough Cups because: I had an idea for an invention and asked my grandpa for a lot of money. He said to think of something to sell to raise the money, so I came up with the idea to do custom hand-painted tumblers and wine glasses.
I sell my cups: Mostly on my Facebook page and some local places like Jeannie’s Place in Eustis and Infinity Salon Studios in Umatilla. I am working with a few Racetracks and restaurants in town as well.
I like to give back by: I have donated a lot of cups to things like golf tournaments, police departments, chambers of commerce, breast cancer awareness events, suicide awareness events, and other organizations. I have gifted the Eustis mayor and police chief a custom cup to show my appreciation.
When I grow up, I want to be: Maybe a police officer, mega truck racer and still run my own business, like a football or basketball team.
My inspiration is: My Grandma Maggie and my Grandpa Jim. They have made a lot of my dreams come true and they help me as much as possible. Eustis Police Chief Capri is also inspiring because he does a lot for everyone, which is something I like to do.
I want my message to be: Always try your best and never give up. It’s out there, you just have to go get it.
