May 11 can change our country, but you probably don’t know why.
I believe it’s one of the most important days of the year, though...Lemonade Day.
Before you brush me off in laughter, let me explain what Lemonade Day is and isn’t. It’s not a national day to celebrate the sweet and sour drink. Personally, I don’t even like lemonade (I know, I should probably renounce my citizenship and move to North Korea while I am at it).
Lemonade Day is all about entrepreneurship. This video tells it all:
I love the description they provide on their site, LemonadeDay.org:
America was built on the back of small business. Entrepreneurs used to take risks believing they could realize their dream if they worked hard, took responsibility and were good stewards of their resources. Today’s youth share that optimism, but lack the life skills, mentorship and real-world experience necessary to be successful.
