Homework time (groan). In this series, we explore the lives of ordinary kids with not-so-ordinary hobbies. Between soccer practice and school work and swimming lessons, these youngsters also run successful businesses—sometimes with a bit of grown-up help.
As these remarkable kids were preparing to head back to school, they took time from their busy summer schedules to complete an extra homework assignment. They share some of their favorite things—from sloths and surfing to Marie Curie—and what it’s like to be the boss.
You’ll meet Gen Alpha and Gen Z superstars, including:
- The school-aged CEO of a kids’ jewelry company
- A kindergartener who hates school but loves Spider-Man and making bath bombs
- One of three young brothers who founded a candle company that gives back to those who are homeless
- A STEM-obsessed 10-year-old inventor and public speaker
- Two brothers leveling up their love of the ocean
