Ormewood Park's Littlest Businessman

Amil Moore, a rising sixth grader, sees opportunity in sno-cones and popcorn.

While most 11-year-olds are spending the last few days of their summer vacation in fun and frolic, one young man is all about business.

For the past week, Amil Moore, has been operating a little sno-cone and popcorn stand outside in Ormewood Park's Ormewood Square.

At 75 cents a pop, business has been brisk and the budding mogul, a rising sixth grader who will attend Cedar Grove Middle in DeKalb County this fall, is happy with the results.

He says it leaves him tired at the end of the day.

The idea for the business was simple, he said.

"I started the sno-cone business because I wanted to make money off of the machine that I bought," Moore said as he prepared for another day of business Monday.

And like any successful businessman, Moore has learned at least one thing and has a piece of advice for anyone — big or small — looking to go into business for himself or herself.

"If you have an idea," he said, "just go with it."
