Little Entrepreneurs










My girls have started a business. They want to do something to earn some of their own money. Living out in the country makes it hard to have a lemonade stand. We wanted to come up with something that they could do. We helped them come up with this idea of making *calling cards for families.* Something I give out to new friends with our name and contact info on it. An old fashion idea that seems to be revived.


Chuck has helped them set up a web site to take orders. They have already hit up the neighbors for a sale or two. I told them I would blog about it to see if they could generate some new customers.










This business of theirs has been a great way to overcome some fears of speaking to adults. It has been a good way to learn about spread sheets on the computer, typing, record keeping...lots of great business skills.










Check out their web site and see their samples. If you want to order you can copy and paste their email address (the link doesn't work yet) with your order info. They can mail them to you for a very small shipping fee.
Hope you think their idea is as neat as I do. Thanks for checking it out.
Oops, I forgot to add that the girls traded an order of Call-Me-Cards for the bunny. Pretty good deal. =)

This is such a great idea. I just ordered some. They are very reasonably priced and will really come in handy. The website is really good too. So professional looking.

I jut may be placing my order once Selah gets here. I LOVE the one that says "Seth, Gage, and Selah's Mom". But I need to wait first until she is ours.
What a great idea!
You are such an awesome Teacher!!!!!!
