LEMONADE STAND

FROM Idea TO ENTREPRENEUR

For 6 to 9 year-olds

“What a fun way to introduce kids to the idea of building a business.  Steve Glaveski shows it’s never too early to start learning how to think like an entrepreneur.”

ADAM GRANT - New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS and GIVE AND TAKE, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

Once upon a time

We used to go to school to learn how to become something; An accountant, a lawyer, a doctor...

But technology has been improving since the 1960s, creating a very uncertain world. Some estimate that 40% of today's jobs won't exist in 10 years!

It's no longer enough to remember facts for a test, only to forget them shortly afterwards.

As Stephen Hawking said, intelligence is the ability to adapt to change, then entrepreneurship is the perfect vehicle to teach children adaptability and resilience.

Written by seasoned entrepreneur and author, Steve Glaveski, LEMONADE STAND follows a young entrepreneur's journey and provides kids with invaluable business and life lessons along the way.
