Consider this: Do your part on Lemonade Day

Saturday is Lemonade Day and if you're like me, you feel a community duty to encourage kids to learn the value of planning, commitment and hard work.

The lessons learned from creating a business plan, taking out a loan, working hard and earning a profit are invaluable in life. Successful business people are being made right here this weekend.

This is about more than is about the fundamentals of economic success.

Consider this: Each one of us should make it our business to buy from at least three lemonade stands this Saturday.

We can help these kids become the business leaders of tomorrow who increase jobs right here at home because the American dream is alive and growing one cup of lemonade at a time.
