While other kids have been sleeping in and playing, three dedicated brothers have started their own company, which is proving to be a success in their hometown.

Marcus, Travell, and Marcelino McBride, brothers aged 12, 10, and 9, have already established their own businesses in their hometown of Saginaw, Michigan.

Marcus, the eldest brother, decided to start a lawncare firm a few months ago, and with a little assistance from mom Terri Reed, they established 3 Amigos Lawncare Service.

“Marcus told me that he wanted to start his own business doing lawn care work,” mom Terri told Michigan Live. “So, the following day, I got up and I purchased all their equipment and their work clothes.”

They now have a huge list of regular clients as a result of their hard work and perseverance.

“I’m very proud of them,” their mom added. “They’re some hard working young boys.”

Now with the summer season nearing fall the three brothers plan to offer all-season services, clearing leaves and snow.

Proud mom Terri said her eldest son didn’t have any lawn care experience at the time, but he had a vision and “he likes to work.”

Throughout the summer the brothers have been busy mowing, weed whacking, edging, trimming, bagging and cleaning up.

“It’s going great. I didn’t expect them to be as busy as they are. It’s been crazy,” Terri said, who owns a number of rental properties in the area.

Now, with around 40 regular customers in the books the boys have earned enough money to put into an investment property.

“They are enjoying it,” she said of the business. “They have their weekly pay days and everything else goes into their business accounts.”

These boys deserve all their success and more. 

Let’s wish them a happy and prosperous future in their new ventures by sharing this story.
