This week Clelland welcomes Eli, 13 year old entrepreneur and owner of a grass cutting business. Eli found that his love of fishing and desire to have better gear necessitated his own money! One day he decided to ask his mom to teach him to mow the lawn. That lesson paved the way to landing his first neighborhood customer. From passing out flyers and knocking on doors he has grown his customer base to 9 lawns.
