Relaxation Station

Relaxation Station

A couple of weeks ago, Ines and her friend, Miya, participated in the TREPs Program in their school.  I love this entrepreneurial program for 4th and 5th graders where they get introduced into the nuts and bolts of starting a business.  The girls came up with their own business venture called Relaxation Station where they sold candles and lotions and provided two-minute massage sessions.

I love how both girls really took ownership of their business idea and seriously prepared for the big TREPs day. There were a few after-school meetings to discuss their venture and finalize details like product design and sales pitch.  I was quite satisfied that both girls stayed at their booths to talk to potential customers about their products and service, despite the numerous distractions like stopping by other friends/vendors’ booths.  I think the most remarkable lesson from that day was that both girls learned how to handle their finances and ensure that expenses are at minimum so they can yield a higher profit.  Never too early to learn some life lessons go along the way, don’t you think?
