Hand-crafted Stands Available for Free Use on Lemonade Day

Creativity comes in many ways…

A big part of being an entrepreneur is knowing where it makes sense to spend your time, effort and money.

What are you really great at? It could be making the product, marketing your business, designing your brand, building a stand, or selling to customers.

Being in business is not about spending the most money or being flashy. It’s about spending your money wisely, having a great product and providing an exceptional customer experience.

The Lemonade Day curriculum offers the option to build a stand, borrow a stand or purchase a stand. And here in Lomita, we have another amazing opportunity for our Young Entrepreneurs thanks to one of our sponsors.

West Coast Wildflowers Design Co. is offering hand-crafted lemonade stands to be used (free of charge) on Lemonade Day Lomita to the first 15 young entrepreneurs who submit their application by Saturday, July 24th.

For those entrepreneurs who wish to have a stand for future business endeavors, they’re also offering a discount. Plus, there’s an opportunity to win a custom sign with your unique business name.

If you’d like to apply, please read the information here.

Good luck to all Lemonade Day Lomita young entrepreneurs.

Finding your zone of genius will put you on the path to success.

Lemonade Day Lomita Micro Loan Pitch Week 2 (sponsored by South Bay Credit Union)

Lemonade Day Young Entrepreneurs are invited to participate in the Micro Loan Pitch Event (sponsored by South Bay Credit Union) -- during the week of July 12th at the Lomita Branch.

This is an amazing opportunity for kids to go through the entrepreneurial startup process in a fun ‘Shark Tank-style’ pitch competition while building self-confidence and developing their planning, team building, and communication skills. While it is extremely rewarding watching these kids in action, it is almost better to watch the reactions of the judges and mentors. Priceless!!

A pillar of Lemonade Day is the “Spend, Save, Share” approach to spending profits earned.

Youth are introduced to the concept of saving and financial understanding of a loan and borrowing money for their business. Children with their parents can visit the South Bay Credit Union branch in Lomita with an appointment on the designated days and times to present their business plans and request a start-up loan and learn how to save, repay and report on business results.

PARENTS: Please reserve an appointment for the Pitch Event here: https://bit.ly/lemonadedaylomitapitch

In-person pitches give young people the opportunity to receive positive attention and valuable feedback from experienced adult mentors while being challenged to stretch well beyond their comfort zone. Youth may pitch in person or submit a video. Please reserve a day/time.
