Here in Corning we have a unique opportunity we did not have up North. Here they have YEA! It's Young Entrepreneurs Academy. It's a year long after school class that teaches your middle school student how to start & run their own business. Their motto is to teach a kid how to make a job, not take a job.
It's a boatload of work. Lexi is wrapping up her business plan now and is miserable.
Let's face it, nobody wants to write one of those, but they are very necessary if you want to run your own business.
Part of the class was a recent session that involved five local CEO's that participated in question & answer sessions. I learned LOTS myself! Parents were invited. I managed to sneak a really terrible photo that I converted to black and white as well as adding the text of the event. I figured it worked, even if the photo wasn't all that.
I have a little butterfly on my layout from Renea Bouquets and a little piece of vintage from my haul I blogged about yesterday.
I'm really glad a scrapped a page about YEA! I think Lexi will look back when she's older and remember the things she learned.
Hope your Tuesday was awesome!
