The unexpected way a police call kickstarted this 12 year old’s business


Starting a new business is always tough, but especially when you’re 12 years old! Reginald’s story is an inspiration and shows true resilience.

Reginald Fields, of Maple Heights, Ohio, said everything was going fine until his customer’s neighbors called the police, claiming the youngster had mowed part of their lawn.

“They said I was cutting their grass,” he said. “I didn’t know it.”

Fields became discouraged after the incident, but then the customer decided to post about the incident on Facebook.

The post received thousands of views and hundreds of shares, and with it, a business boom.

Now, Fields is receiving a lot of support and requests from new clients.

“Just give me a call,” he said. “I will be there. On time.”
