Some of us take a long time figuring out what we're meant to do in this life. Some people have a hard time finding something they love to do, others have challenges turning their passion into a lucrative job. Some of us, though, figure out a profitable path super early on in life.

Not many people find their calling as early as the boy in this video from @_creditwithderisha_, though. This little boy started cutting hair when he was just 2 years old at day care; now, at 8 years old, he's basically a full-fledged barber.

So cool! And so cool that he has the support of his parents and his community. How did he learn those skills at such a young age? Because, truth be told, he even looked pretty confident in those pics from when he was 2. By the time he was 6, you could tell he was an artist...from the way he fussed with getting that hairline perfect, there's no way anyone would leave his chair unhappy with the finished product. 

Commenters thought this kid was the coolest, of course. 

"Boy was a barber in his past life. Came back and clocked in."
"'I've been doing Ts since I was 3-4 years old'"
"bro came here wit a purpose"
"Prices gonna be $100 at 10"
"That's why I'm a firm believer in letting kids follow their dreams and learn trades"

It's true: everybody's path looks different, but when you have supportive people around you who believe in your dream and help you to build your skills and hone your talent, there's no telling how far you can go!
