Aaron Moreno started his entrepreneurial journey at just eight years old. When his mother lost her job during the pandemic, he started selling plants and helped to get his family a new home.
The family was living in a shed and young Aaron wanted to do something to make some money. Luckily his mother believed in him and gave him her last few dollars to invest in some plants to sell.
You might find it hard to believe that a mother would give her last few dollars to an eight-year-old boy, but she must have recognized the entrepreneurial fire in her young son. When you are in such a desperate situation and have a ray of hope, sometimes you have to take the risk.
Using the power of social media and crowdfunding, Aaron and his family have managed to build up the business and make enough to move into a new apartment according to FoxNews. At the time of writing he has raised over $56,000 on GoFundMe.com and has over 30,000 followers on Instagram.
