At some point in life, one begins to understand the importance and necessity of money in the modern world. Some learn sooner than others, but everyone necessarily learns at some point.
Hudson Danger, which is honestly an incredible name, learned the value of the dollar at an extremely young age. The earlier, the better.
A 4-year-old resident of Nashville, Tennessee, young Hudson hit a roadblock after trying to convince his mother to buy him more of his favorite toys.
Mother Danger (her real name is Kristin) put her foot down at a point and told Hudson that he would have to pay for them himself if he wanted to add more to his already large collection. Although many children scream and pout when they don’t get their way, Hudson’s reaction was vastly different and demonstrated immense maturity for his age. He decided to take a proactive approach to getting what he desired.
Hudson’s mother is a wedding photographer, and Hudson soon proved to have that same creative spirit, interested in the arts from day one. Young Danger’s artistic specialty is watercolor paintings, which his parents love deeply (and he also really enjoys photography, following in his mother’s footsteps).
Hudson had the thought that if his parents admire his work so much, maybe he can expand his platform, selling his watercolors for real dollars to others.
Soon enough, Mr. Danger started listing his collected works for sale. Then, came the cash.
In fact, in his first week, he sold roughly $100 in paintings. This is the equivalent of a million bucks to a small child, maybe more.
With his newfound financial freedom, naturally, Hudson spent his money on his now attainable favorite toys. The man knows what he wants, and he does what’s needed in order to obtain them.
His mother was incredibly proud of her son, stating the following, according to inspiremore.com: “I thought I was gonna teach him the lesson of ‘you gotta work hard for stuff you want,’ but instead he taught me the lesson that I shouldn’t try to teach him lessons. One of the best things my parents ever taught me was how to run a business doing things I loved, so I’m proud to pass that on the Hudson.”
Clearly, Kristin has been instilling the right values in her son, who’s financial and business acumen is now years ahead of all his peers. Hudson’s even been selling his art through Instagram.
It’s safe to say that Hudson’s about ten or so years ahead of the financial curve (at least), quickly learning the value of money and then establishing a profitable source of income. It’s easy to forget that he’s only 4 years old. Through hard work, creativity, and his mother’s guidance, young Hudson Danger has begun to build something well beyond his years.
