If you want to rock your lemonade stand business, this post is for you! Hi folks….
It's hot outside, and it's definitely perfect weather for some fresh squeezed lemonade. You know that perfectly tart and tangy combination of real lemon juice, sugar, and water, served in a cup full of ice…
There's nothing better on a sweltering summer day. And it's one of those things you never think to make for yourself at home, so when there's a lemonade stand at the ball park or fairgrounds, you're gonna buy a lemonade!
Kristin asked the group members for advice so she and her crew would be able to set up a lemonade stand and sell lemonade efficiently. And once she got her basic equipment and figured out how to run the stand, she covered her expenses quickly!
In just one day, she paid off her small investment, and now she's squeezing money out of those lemons, and adding strawberry lemonade, orange-ade, and diet lemonade to the menu.
First Time At My Lemonade Stand…
Here's what Kristin shared with me about getting started with her lemonade stand business:

I got to go see Kristin and her family working the lemonade business at a festival and they were kicking butt.
We Needed the Income!
Here's a follow up message from Kristin after working the lemonade stand at another event.
Event 4-8 pm sold out of 100 lemonades in three hours at $6 each regular, $7 for strawberry. Went and bought more and sold out again!
Can I say I LOVE YOU BEN. We needed income so bad!(from Kristin's email)
