Believing in your child’s dreams can plant seeds that will bloom for a lifetime. This narrative rings true for 17-Year-Old a’Ron Burns. His mother, Alexis Burns, quit her job because she believed in her son’s aspirations to become an entrepreneur.
“Me investing and contributing and actually showing him, ‘Hey I’m quitting my job, I’m cashing in on my 401k, I’m giving this my all. Because this is a dream that you want. And I believe in you. I’m gonna trust you to do the right thing,’” Alexis said, according to WLBT News.
a’Ron is now the owner of Rolls-N-Sweetz, home to ice cream and more delights. It opened for business in June 2022 as a way to connect deeper with the community. Already, the teen entrepreneur has plans to scale the business nationwide.
“With entrepreneurship, I can provide jobs, I can provide peace, I can provide comfort. And with ice cream, it’s also an emotional support food. So, it also would help me connect to people who are going through things I might not know, but the ice cream might help,” a’Ron told WLBT News.
