Four-year-old boy pretends he's the boss of a West Monroe business

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Some kids have imaginary friends, but a local four-year-old is imagining himself as the CEO of a West Monroe business.

Nash Branch says he's the boss of Associated Business Printing, or ABP.

His mom shared the videos on Facebook and the people at ABP got the message.

"He wanted to see his ABP. He kept calling it his ABP so we just tried to make the dream come true for him."

So they invited Nash to pack up his briefcase and spend some time at 'his' office.

When he comes to work, he does what every kid does - working the machines, signing checks, and handing out business cards to potential customers.

"We let him do just about everything around here to let him be the big boss," ABP president Paul Little says.

And Nash has taken over, letting people know he really is in charge. The workers there even play along.

Little says bringing Nash to the office is about more than a day of fun, it's about making this four-year-old's dream become a reality.

"We all have kids and we just wanted to make this dream come true for some other child that really thought that this was his business," he says.

His mom Megan says this experience could make a big impact on his future because she already knows what he's going to be when he grows up.

"He definitely wants to be a boss no matter what he does,” she says. “I don't know what it will be yet but he definitely wants to be a boss."

Little says if Nash wants a real job at ABP one day, he's hired.

"One day when I’m ready to get out of this, if he's older, he'll be the first one I offer it to," Little says.

But for now, he's just having fun pressing buttons and being the boss.

And after a long day at work, Nash pays his employees with a round of high fives.
