In late 2009, Houston entrepreneur and native Hoosier Michael Holthouse asked me to bring this great program he founded- Lemonade Day -to Indianapolis are. This much needed program teaches kids how to start,own and operate their own business. A Lemonade Stand. Kids viscerally learn about entrepreneurship, financial literacy, philanthropy and much more. Without hesitation I stirred Lemonade Day Indianapolis and started a new foundation. Yes, it a huge commitment but I didn’t hesitate and here why
Today fewer and fewer kids are engaging in entrepreneurial activities like mowing lawns or starting lemonade stands. And yet many entrepreneurs talk about their early childhood experiences starting a lemonade stands, or selling golf balls to empty-handed golfers, as the moment when the light bulb went off. The moment when when they know could control their own destinies and possibly even change the world with their ideas. A lemonade stand did that for me, and I want other kids to have that “light bulb” moment.

Simply put,Lemonade Day is about providing kids of all ages the opportunity to EXPERIENCE entrepreneurship by starting, owning and operating their own business: A Lemonade Stand! AND it’s FREE!!
