After growing up on a farm, my parents taught me the value of a good days work. SO glad! This is what I want my kids to learn. This Norwex business of mine isn’t a “me only” business while the kids jump around the house with dad, not knowing WHY mom leaves the house a couple nights a week. They understand that mom does Norwex for the family and that this is their business too.
In case you didn’t know, I have 5 children ages 7, 6, 4, 2, and 1. Many people would ask “what on earth can kids that little do to earn money and be actual employees of a business?”. Goodness there is a lot! My 7, 6, and 4 year old kids stuff and label catalogs, put together hostess & booking gifts, prepare binders, count postcards, label sample bottles, and any other officely thing. The youngest two travel around the house making messes for me to use Norwex products on and then blog about later (hehe).
I pay my kids $5/hour. When they get their paychecks, they are able to do whatever they want with 25% of it (or last week the three older kids took their little brother’s new ball and broke it, so they will use their savings to buy him a new one) while the remaining funds are given to a cause or invested for the future (college etc.).
With Norwex we are building a legacy for future generations. Not only do we have the opportunity to share these products to create safer homes in our community, but also to experience freedom in this kind of business. It is such a gift to be able to share this with my kids.
