My son is running his first enterprise today - a Lemonade stand.

Well, Lemonade, tea, and ice-coffee. He is cleaning up! We put the sign at .50$, he keeps saying a dollar to customers, and not one has paid less than a dollar. His best customer so far paid 2.75 for a delicious glass. I can't wait for someone to give him a five, I think ti will knock his socks off.

Did he make the lemonade? And why is this in the Debate.org forum? It should be in the Personal Forum.

Yes, he made the lemonade. He squeeze ~65% of the lemons, helped with the mixing, and picked them out at the store. I would give it an honest 65% of overall lemonade making. The tea and coffee he did zero%. Building the stand he was mostly a pain in my a$$, but he was there working with me.

As to the personal nature of the post, yea, sure, it should be in personal.

You can't swear at the customers. And no peeing in the lemonade!

Sure. I think he's joking, but sometimes it's hard to tell with the younger members.

That's cool; at his age, I was dealing drugs. Much more profitable (and not suspicious), if you ask me.

I got 3k on my best day; shortly after, the cops tried to arrest me, but it was easy to bribe them with some dank weed.

Kush and weed were my primary products. I had more...expensive...options as well. Those days are in the past, though.

Or are they?

Indeed. Perhaps he will start his own business empire someday.

Hopefully nobody reports him for operating a business without a license :)

That happened to some kid in New Jersey. Two teens also got in trouble for going door to door and offering to shovel people's snow, but fortunately Christie repealed the law that prevented that.
