Entrepreneurial Lessons from a One-Day Cookie Biz
By Connect 2 on May 16, 2012
The most powerful lessons are the most simple. That is why I LOVE this story of an entrepreneur, single mom and what her kids are teaching her about business via their one-day cookie selling spree. Even the little ones can school those MBA's! Coming on the heels of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, the possibilities are endless...
One of my joys of entrepreneurship is occasionally letting my kids skip their after-school program to have playmates over after school. Monday afternoon was such a day for my daughter K and her friend D. The two girls schemed for this event for a week. They planned to wear matching outfits, bake cookies, and go door-to-door in our neighborhood selling them. When K initially informed me of the agenda, I admit I was completely resistant.
