This is a photo of my niece’s two young boys.

They are at the end of their driveway holding their first ever Lemonade Stand Sale.

I am sure they have never even seen a home Lemonade Stand before.

But here they are all happy and excited to begin their very first steps into the amazing world we know as Entrepreneurship.

They actually made $23.00 selling Lemonade that afternoon.

I call that a huge success.

There will be no holding them back now!

This is how it begins for many.

Please come and post a reply and tell all of us how you got started!

I hope you enjoyed this, I know I did!

I got my start selling drawings in school. I only sold them for a few cents and only made about my lunch money back each day (which was $1.50). I guess that's alright for some kid in Jr. High school selling pencil drawings.

That's not me but it could be, I was mowing my spring, summers and falls every year. I washed cars and walked dogs too.
In the winter I shoveled sidewalks and sold Christmas cards. If it was legal and there was money in it I did it.
I'm still at it so I guess it becomes a way of life.

There are many organizations that provide micro loans to help poor people all over the globe to get started on their entrepreneurial journey.

I think it can be very a very rewarding experience for both the people providing the loan capital and the people receiving the loans.

You need to do thorough research and be certain that you are working with a legal, responsible and committed organization.

Children are born entrepreneurs. They love making their own money.

Unfortunately, too many times they do not know where or how to begin.

This is where you can step in and help to guide them.

You can start by taking them to the local library or showing them how to do relevant
searches on-line that can help to guide them in the right direction.

Just be sure to check with your local government to make sure that they will comply
with any local or state ordinances. This may be a learning experience for you too.

A child’s first business doesn’t have to be just a summer thing, although that is a
good place to start.

Step up, be a valuable contributor to someone else’s success. You never know where
This will lead.

Hi Cecelia,
I believe in encouraging children to work. It's good to get a head start in life
It helps to teach them independence and gives them more self esteem

Thank you for sharing *~
