Lemonade Day with New Orleans’ young entrepreneurs on May 4

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
Everyone knows how focused IntheNOLA is on showcasing and promoting small businesses in New Orleans. And next Saturday, don’t be surprised at just how many new ones you’re gonna find throughout the New Orleans area on sidewalks and in front of houses and businesses, all with one goal in mind…to teach our young New Orleanians the ins and outs of running their own small business.

On May 4, be prepared to sip your way through the city with Lemonade Day, “a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business using a lemonade stand as well as fundamental lessons about life, success and themselves.”
With 150,000 kids in 36 cities, Lemonade Day “educates children about entrepreneurship and giving back to their community, by letting them running their own lemonade stand and encouraging them to donate some of their profits to their favorite charity."
 
Lemonade Day entrepreneurs coordinate EVERYTHING, from creating a budget and deciding on a name for their stand, to finding investors and workers to serve the customers. “Lemonade Day is a strategic 14-step process that walks youth from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any big company. Inspiring kids to work hard and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community."

What a great way for our young New Orleanians to learn the tricks of the trade of operating a small business! And considering that New Orleans is such a hub for small businesses, it’s not a moment too soon! Most Lemonade Day entrepreneurs bring in between $150-$250 in profit and can set up anywhere in the city (as long as they have permission from property and business owners).

IntheNOLA is proud to host on of these budding entrepreneurs for Lemonade Day...from one team of young entrepreneurs at IntheNOLA to even younger entrepreneurs who are just starting out on this great journey of being one’s own boss.

So get out and buy some lemonade from a budding entrepreneur next Saturday!
