It always pays to advertise! Ben Roberts, 12, of Orleans needs customers for his snow removal business – so he wrote a letter to the Newport Dispatch.
“I got interested in this form of work because I have helped shovel off my walkway and driveway at home for years. I’m still getting off of the ground with the business.
I have already done business for a couple of customers.
I obviously couldn’t work at a traditional job due to my age. So, I took it into my own hands, with the support of my family and friends, to begin my own small business.
I have started a website, publicized my business on Google, created an Instagram page, and created a Facebook page. I’m in the process of designing company merchandise."
