Roman (10) and his younger brother, Easton (6), are just like any other kids: they love the beach, play loads of sport, and, in their spare time, they work on their very own business, MM. CROWN. So, we guess they’re not exactly like any other kids.
MM. CROWN deals in beanies and caps, which are designed and created by the boys. It’s aptly named – Roman and Easton believe every kid deserves to wear a crown, so much so that, for every product they sell, they donate another to kids living rough.
With well-known actor Manny Montana (of ‘Good Girls’ and ‘Graceland’ fame) as their ambassador, MM. CROWN is destined for great things. We chatted to Roman about his plans for the future and what life looks like right now.
How did you get involved in your own business, and when?
About 2 months ago we started our business MM.CROWN. We are designing and creating beanies and caps. For every beanie and cap we sell we donate one to kids living rough. Our mum has a kids clothing business and this inspired us to start our own brand. We are learning to run a small business, we get to be creative and to give something back to the community.
What do you love about it?
I love learning to run a small business and seeing photos of people wearing our gear. We’ve had photos from Europe and USA.
How much time do you put into it each week?
We spend a few hours each week designing and creating. And we also spend time on our social media and online shop. Our Instagram is our main advertising.
What’s your favourite thing to do on the weekend?
Spend time with my family and go to the beach.
What book have you most recently read?
Demon Dentist by David Williams
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a Lawyer and Easton wants to be a Forensic Scientist
Which celebrity do you look up to, and why?
I think Manny Montana is awesome! He is our name ambassador. He uses his Instagram to support causes and small businesses. He has been a great supporter of our business.
Where do you see yourself in 15 years?
I want to compete at the olympics for water polo and be a Lawyer. Easton wants to be a police officer in the science/forensic department.
