A set of identical twin brothers in Moncton, N.B., are tapping into their differences to turn a profit.

George Davison and Jack Davison, 9, are polar opposites in almost every way.

While Jack is artistic, George is an analytical planner — they even part their hair on different sides.

But the pair’s bittersweet differences haven’t stopped them from running an old-fashioned lemonade stand together.

One thing the boys do share is a flair for business and they’ve been encouraged and inspired by their mother, Natalie Davison, to think outside of the box when it comes to education.

“The boys have ADHD and dysgraphia,” Natalie said, saying it’s made adapting to school difficult for both of the boys.

She said running a lemonade stand together seemed like the perfect opportunity to teach the boys life skills that validate each of their strengths.

Jack, the laid-back artist, already owns his own business making T-shirts and mugs printed with his artistic creations.

Now, he also works for his little brother as an employee.

But having his brother as his boss is the bitter part of a family-run business.

“Sometimes, he keeps saying he is my older brother and it is very annoying,” said George.

They are typical brothers with a mom who celebrates their differences and a community that is rallying around their entrepreneurial efforts.

“Saturday morning, they are up and squeezing lemons. They may be arguing about it but they are up and they are doing it,” said Natalie.
