I met my goals. I learned A LOT. I have $20 for a toy, $60 for the Children’s Hospital, and lots to put in the bank.

Charlie, Age 6
Lemonade Day Entrepreneur, 2023

I want to put up a lemonade stand every year until I earn enough money to start my own business.

Shriya, Age 8
Lemonade Day Entrepreneur, 2023

I was a little scared no one would want to buy my lemonade, but I did it anyways. And I made up my own jokes to tell people.

Fern, Age 6
Lemonade Day Entrepreneur, 2023

The hardest thing I faced was talking to people. I felt shy at the beginning, and then I learned it was better to be brave and friendly.

Millie, Age 5

We thought selling lemonade would be fun, and guess what? It is! Plus, it’s cool to have our own little business.
