Lessons learned from running a lemonade stand

Entrepreneurs come in all shapes, sizes… and ages. PBS Newshour shares how having a lemonade stand can help kids learn all sorts of skills that are key to success in the business world.

Here are tips from a financial planner interviewed for the piece:

  • Have your kid be part of each step of the process
  • Work with your child to determine the appropriate sales price
  • Try the three piggy bank model for profits – share, save and spend
  • Adapt lessons to your child based on age and ability
  • Keep your expectations in check
