My father helped me start my first business when I was about 8-9 years old. Through my little stand, he used this opportunity to break down business concepts such return of investment, supply and demand, acquiring vendors, etc. It is something that I carry with me to this day and someday hope to pass to N as she grows a little older. This is why Gunner and Lux’s story touches me deeply.
Gunner and Lux is a Daddy and daughter duo that makes these amazing statement pieces for kids and grown ups! They started selling their necklace through their daughter’s lemonade stand. As interest grew, they eventually sold them online and now their items can be found in places like Barney’s and Nordstrom.
One of the things that I love about Riley and John is that they are truly partners in this business. John asks and trusts Riley for her input and encourages her to make decisions for each piece that they create. Empowering our children, especially our daughters, and teaching them that their thoughts and opinions count - regardless of age - is a beautiful thing.
