Buying a Lemon is a Good Thing!

 

It's official, my kids are opening a one day lemonade stand right here in Dallas! They are tickled pink yellow at the idea of making some extra money to take with us to Disney World in a few days. And what more can entrepreneur parents give their kids than the knowledge and experience that have gotten us so far in life.

 

To get involved, check out LemonadeDay.org and buy some lemons (or lemon juice, in our case). It's never too early to start teaching children about business and money. No excuses here. What? You don't have any kids you say? Find a kid on your block, at your church, maybe a niece or nephew. Just look around and see who you can help!

Just like any other business, you're going to have to do some marketing :) Let's the kids help make flyers, call friends and family. Don't forget about Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc... Get the word out and teach our children marketing and business 101.

 

Who's in? I can't wait to hear your results!

Jessica, this is an excellent way for kids to learn capitalism, work ethic and self reliance!
