Today is the neighborhood garage sale, which means there are a lot of people driving really slowly along the streets, peering out at the stuff in yards. Zack had the bright idea of setting up a cookie and lemonade stand to catch the traffic.
Interestingly, cookies are far more popular than lemonade. We had to make an emergency batch this morning to keep up with demand. In fact, we decided to offer free lemonade with the purchase of a cookie so we don’t end up with several gallons of the stuff at the end of the day.
It’s good to see Zack with a little entrepreneurial spirit. We also did a little coaching, pointing out that if he smiles and says, “Good morning” to people walking past that his sales will dramatically increase. So he’s gaining some social skills along with a few dollars.
