GOAT TALES #04

Chris Edwards, ENTREPENEUR

01 JULY 2024, WRITTEN BY JACKIE BARON

In the spirit of Neon Goat's vibrant energy, could you share a moment when your teen son brought an unexpected splash of colour into your life or business?

My son is constantly splashing and flashing his big personality and cheeky sense of humour to us. Yesterday he told me how at his new school, in a new class he was learning about 'acute' angles and the teacher suggested they remember it because small things are cute.  My son corrected her and said that this was untrue because his mate "Ben Walker was small but not cute!" and had the class in roars of laughter.

The Teenage Perspective: Living with a teenager can be like riding a roller coaster in the dark. What's one challenge you've faced while living with your teen son, and how did you turn it into a positive experience?

I know my son cringes with talk about sex, and personal hygiene for that matter - and the best way we get around it - is talking about it all the time, and peppering everything with humour.

Shared Passions: What's an activity or hobby you love doing together with your teen son that brings out the 'cool' in both of you, Neon Goat style?

We both love wakeboarding and snow skiing - adrenaline junkies through and through. 

The 'Goat' Legacy: If your teen son were to take over Neon Goat for a day, what innovative or outrageous product do you think he would create, and why?

He would definitely create a Neon Goat aviator skin so people could be Neon Goats in the metaverse.

Navigating the Teen Terrain: Teens are known for their mood swings and monosyllabic responses. What's your secret to getting your teen son to open up and engage in meaningful conversations, especially about life and your business?

Long car trips, when they are strapped in a seat beside you and have no eye contact with you - I find they are much more open and comfortable and chat away.
