Morning Blend on ABC News 10 with Mark S. Allen

Many of you know that I started an Entrepreneur Club at my school. There are kids in grades 6-8 in the club and it’s been super fun hearing their ideas and watching them take action to make their own money. I was asked to put something together for the Kids Expo so my mom helped me put together a panel of young entrepreneurs for a Q&A on Saturday at the expo. TJ who is the young founder of the expo, Layla and Mya who have a business called Suga-Babes body products and of course, me, with Mason Made Products.


We did the media rounds leading up to the big day on Morning Blend with Mark S. Allen on ABC News 10 on Friday, and then Saturday morning we appeared on Good Day Sacramento.

From my mom: “These kids are AMAZING!! Really, they are learning and growing at such a rapid pace, speaking more articulately and presenting themselves as polished and professional with each new appearance. The day of the expo, they answered questions and were spot on with the correct information and advice. I am so proud to be on this journey with Mason and I love seeing other kids making these impressive strides as well.

While Mason was making the media rounds I was hearing people say, Mason is so well spoken. He really has a gift for speaking and being on camera. He’s a natural. I agree with most of that, the part about being a natural reminds me of how often people will note that someone is an overnight success, someone who has been playing or performing for years! Mason is a “natural” who has been practicing being on camera since he’s been 8 years old. He’s 14 now, so that’s six years and over 130 videos on Youtube that make him naturally experienced! LOL! I have been feeling more and more proud of Mason and I see him finding wild success in his life.”

Listening to the news and hearing all the negative news, it’s easy to think that this world is going downhill fast, but I’m here to tell you, we are young people who will make this world a better place, heck, not will, we are making this world a better place right now. Don’t you think so?

¹There are many different types of curry paste that come in packages, jars, bottles, or powder varieties. Use what ever you think suits your palate. You can always change it up next time.

²Naan is an Indian flat bread similar to pita bread which could work as a substitute. Falafel bread would also work. Naan is usually found in the frozen food aisle as it has no preservatives or you can find it at any Indian restaurant or specialty food store.

³Chutney is spicy jam usually made with mangos. You can find this in the condiment aisle of most grocery stores. Once again it comes in a variety of flavors so experiment.
