Corey’s Protein Balls
Corey’s Protein Balls
Pursuit of passion
Corey’s business was driven by his passion for pursing an athletic career. With the help of his sister Jeldi and parents Corey created, branded, marketed and sold his own protein balls.
They were very popular and freezable, meaning Corey could produce them in large quantities and offer bulk order discounts. From here Corey established a re-order business via his Facebook page and achieved good reviews and regular customers.
The intention was for the business to contribute to the costs of his chosen sport. Unfortunately Corey sustained a spinal injury in December 2017 and is unable to continue with his BMX ambition. Thankfully his entrepreneurial spirit is still strong and Corey now sells toys, water bottles, and wrist bands to fundraise and contribute to his ongoing medical costs and his new career aspirations as a champion para-athlete. .
Love from our teachers
"The program brought small business and financial management to the forefront of our students minds. It really opened their eyes to the ‘real world’ and that money does not just magically appear. It put things into perspective and their initiatives displayed at the Market stall day really showed the learning they gained from the program.
The Year 5 students are already talking about it!"
Melanie Buller, Principal SHHP 2019
"I was absolutely blown away by how successful the night was. The students did an amazing job and I am so proud of them. I haven’t done the final count, but I won’t be surprised if between them they have raised over $2000 in profit! And it’s not over! I have a meeting with our P&F representatives tomorrow to see if we can support them with their Christmas stall."

Parents of Kidpreneurs - Kat, mum of Ash
How do parents feel about their kids running businesses? We are deeply curious about this at Maker Kids, so we ask the parents we meet regularly.

Hope you enjoy it 🙂Posted by Maker Kids Club on Monday, June 26, 2017
