Mind Your Business


Today I got to see a great student program in action. I visited my son’s 4th grade class at West Elementary to help out with “Mind Your Business” program and was blow away by both the depth of the program and the students engagement and enthusiasm!

Created and facilitated by two amazing Andover MUMS Carlie Hornbrook and Patty Bechard, the programs purpose is to give students hands on experience and literacy of business today. In today’s session they experienced, reporting, finance, purchasing, creative marketing, sales, leadership and interacting departments. The kids not only learn key terms and concepts but business acumen and interpersonal skills.

These MUMS have volunteered their time creating and facilitating this program for the past few years.  Thank you Carlie and Patty! I see big things for you and Mind Your Business.
