We’ve all heard the saying “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!” Well here at Lemonade Day we take that saying to a whole new level.
I’m sure you’re wondering, what is this Lemonade Day? Well let me tell you a little about this exciting new program for the youth in Chicago. Lemonade Day is a FREE city wide program for all of the youth in Chicago. Lemonade Day teaches youth how to set goals, develop a business plan, establish a budget, seek investors and of course make some money! Here at Lemonade Day we believe in teaching our children the skills needed to be entrepreneurs. We want to show the future of our nation that no matter where you come from and what your interests are starting your own business is a career option for anyone! By teaching the youth to be entrepreneurs through building a lemonade stand they will have the skills needed to be successful business owners for the rest of their lives and will be able to implement them into the building of their own business in the future.
Lemonade Day has occurred in five cities across the United States, where over 50,000 kids were empowered to build their own business on one single day! How powerful is that? For the 2010 Lemonade Day we are bringing the program to 11 new cities and I am so excited to get Chicago involved in being one of the biggest lemonade producers in the country on May 2, 2010.
So what are we waiting for Chicago?? Lets start empowering our youth to be entrepreneurs and best of all lets make some lemonade!!
