Have you ever had a lemonade stand? Did you make fresh pressed lemonade, build a physical stand, advertise by making a poster or sell your product for a quarter? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you have already had an entrepreneurial experience. But what is an entrepreneur?
Merriam-Webster: “one who organizes, manages and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.”
Dictionary.com: “a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.”
Although it be hard to believe, most successful businesspeople start their skills/careers as teenage entrepreneurs. Their age didn’t hold them back, and neither should yours. What better way to develop professional skills than by opening your own lemonade stand? Lemonade Day is a national program aimed to help you do just that. But whether its lemonade, phone cases, cupcakes, tutoring or t-shirts, opening your own small business by definition makes you a boss.
