Conrad Black has nothing on her

I think Leah might have a head for business. She decided to set up a face-painting stand at the end of the driveway to make some money to spend at the Carp Fair. She was very methodical. First she drew designs of the various face paintings on offer on pieces of paper that she inserted into plastic photo-album pages, and created a catalogue of designs. Then she bought some face paint crayons.

I heard the following when she was discussing how much she should be charging for the service with her sister:

Rae: How much are you going to charge?

Leah: I don't know. A dollar? Hey! We should go on Dragons' Den and ask for $300 in return for 40% of the business.

I figure I'll be getting a Rolls for my birthday in a couple of years.

(For my American friends, you have Dragons' Den too, only it's called Shark Tank down there.)


  1. I'd pay a lot more than just a loony. :-)

    So, did she make any money?

  3. Buy her a power suit for Halloween and rent Wall Street for her to watch. Maybe you will be able to retire early on her coat tails!


  4. Smart kid. She’ll go far.

    She needs to set up a stand AT the Carp Fair and/or market. A friend of mine does face painting in Halifax and it's her full-time job. She makes a killing over the summer and just travels and does her own artwork over the winter.
