A sense of pride and a sense of earning things you want is what Tom Partridge wanted to instil in his daughter Mia and that's exactly what he has done.
From recycling bottles and cans, to selling her dad's used buckets for $4 a pop, the eight-year-old girl may not have earned the "millions" that she joked she had, but she has definitely put away a pretty penny.
In fact Mr Partridge has already banked about $2000 since Mia started.
"When I was a kid I'd go round knocking on people's doors for work and things like that," he said.
"It's just all about making them work for what they want rather than just giving it to them and she loves it too."
The bucket business, which you can see as you drive down past their home, has been going on for a couple of years, around the same time Orange first got its return and earn machines.
"With all the recycling, we started doing that as soon as they brought the machines in and she came up with me the first time and I didn't even get a chance to do anything, she just did it all," Mr Partridge added.
"She's always out there seeing when we can take the buckets out, and I'll usually say to her what does she want to buy and that gives her the reward for doing it. She loves all those stuffed teddies and that.
"I'm very, very proud knowing that she has a respect for working and putting in the hard yards."
As for Mia, she has her sights set high.
Asked what she wanted to buy with her money, she said "a red Lamborghini."
"I have a lot of fun doing it. Sometimes I will spend my money and sometimes I'll save it."
