Yes She Can: Meet Taylor Moxey, The 8-Year-Old Pastry Chef
by Clutch — Jun 10, 2014

Most 8-year-old children aren’t busy with running their own pastry business. But 8-year-old Taylor Moxey isn’t like most children. In the words of Jay Z, Taylor is a  business, man. Taylor is  a pastry chef from Miami, and starting out by selling cupcakes at her church, which turned into having private clients! Need I remind you this is an 8-year-old?

Taylor decided to start her business after her father insisted that she figured out how to come up with money for a doll she wanted.  Want a doll? Start a business. So Taylor did just that.

From ABC News:

“If I have a client on Tuesday, say my dad picks me up at like 1 and then we go to my house and we get the ingredients ready and start baking and by the time it’s done and we deliver it, I go to dance,” Taylor told ABC News about juggling her schedule.

She’s still in elementary school, after all, so homework and other extracurricular activities can sometimes get in the way of maximizing profit.

[...]

“Her mom and I gave her a loan of $40 and said she can pay it back. We were confident she’d make $40 but we thought that’d be the extent of it,” Moxey said. “But that Sunday at church she made $175 selling the cupcakes. We were blown away.”

Rather than buying the doll she had earned, Taylor chose to use the profits to buy business cards and start a real pastry business.

“She started passing the cards out as ‘Taylor the Chef,’” Moxey explained. “My phone number was on them, so people started calling, and all of a sudden I’m getting cupcake orders. And it’s just spiraled.”

To say Taylor has moxie, would be an understatement!

You can follow Taylor on Instagram and Twitter.

Thumbs Up Starting off young! Hopefully her parents are setting some of the money she makes aside in a savings account for her.
