In grade school, I saw a display of “Bonkers” marked down to $0.10 each, since the candy was being discontinued.  The going rate for a candy bar was $0.25 at the time.  I went home, got every cent I had saved, $20, and bought 200 of them.  I took them to school and sold them for $0.20 and doubled my money.  As a kid, I had already come up with ideas about making a profit while also pricing my product under the competition. 

I loved this talk by Cameron Herold with great ideas to encourage our kids to be entrepreneurs, to be innovative, leaders, problem solvers, business founders instead of employees.  If you have a kid with an interest in business, making money, being a leader, go grab him or her and spend 20 minutes enjoying this video:

    Glad you liked it! And your lego party business is such a great idea. I have 4 boys and the love legos, building, racing, and crashing!
