Entrepreneurship in elementary school hasn’t always been a thing, but we can tell you that it is now! Kids are being empowered in so many ways that help them not only develop increasingly in-demand skills, but it can allow them to be more helpful to the overall family dynamic.

We sat down with three budding entrepreneurs, ages 9 & 11, to chat about their first foray into business, Lemonade Baristas! Listen to their appearance with Jason Mudd on the #502LeaderSeries show on the Yes Brands Audible Experience network and make sure you follow them on Facebook

Their poise and engagement are what most impressed us about these young business owners. They may be kids, but they’ve got passion and they’ve done their homework.

It’s important to note that their journey was kicked off by Lemonade Day, a non-profit that, per their website, “is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand.”

We absolutely love everything about this. An organization that uses fun, engaging, and current/trending ways to teach young humans about the real world from an early age. How simplistically brilliant is that?!? It’s not philosophical or metaphysical, it is 100% pragmatic.
