9 year old Sydney boy creates Brownie business

  • Written by Candice Meisels

9-year-old Sydney boy creates Brownie business and helps local community during the lockdown. All orders are packed with extra brownies to  “Send something sweet while they cannot meet."

9 year old, Ariel Sher from Sydney's North Shore, has shown that entrepreneurial skills can be developed at any age. 


Before the pandemic, when friends were having cookie stands and selling one cookie at a time, Ariel asked his Mum, if it wouldn’t be more effective to sell batches at a time and make more money.


Ariel launched his brownie business selling a batch for $10. He learned to pay for the ingredients himself and donated 10% of his earnings to charity. Ariel's business is booming with 6 orders coming through in one day. In the past week, he has had 20 orders.


He uses his recess and lunch breaks during homeschool to bake his brownies and then does contactless deliveries after school. 




Ariel took his business one
step further during the current lockdown and includes an extra little pack of brownies to all consumers to pass on to a neighbour, friend, or relative who they’d love to “Send something sweet while they cannot meet."


Ariel's Mum, Vanessa Sher, says: "I think amidst all the lockdown stress and hardship, it’s such a nice feel-good story of a kid being resilient and using homeschool/lockdown for something positive. He works so hard at it. He has a spreadsheet and is so diligent.


It’s such an example of learning broader schools out of the classroom. Excel, People skills, having to confirm orders, message people to say orders have been delivered, Time management - fitting it all into his school day (whilst staying focussed at school) , covid safe practices, etc He even adds in surprise discounts for repeat customers."
