DIY Lemonade Stands for Kids + Adults-Only Sips for You
When life hands you lemons, start a lucrative lemonade business.
Today's youth are smart, savvy and spirited. Look at Moziah Bridges, the 15-year-old CEO of Mo's Bows and 12-year-old Cory Nieves, the CEO and head of distribution for Mr. Cory's Cookies. Why save a good idea for adulthood when you can do it now?
So, what does this have to do with lemonade, you may be wondering? Everything. August 20 is Lemonade Day, a day devoted to teaching kids the power of entrepreneurship. According to the official Lemonade Day website, "[it's] a fun, experiential program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their very own business — a lemonade stand [...] Our mission is to help today's youth to become the business leaders, social advocates, community volunteers and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow." Find your city and set up shop.
