Jamaya Steele Sells Lemonade on Lemonade Day

lemonfinal

National Lemonade Day was May 2nd and the Center for University-Based Development sponsored Ms. Jamaya Steele to set up a stand at Sal & Mookies. JSU College of Business students, Ray McCants and Kendra Lewis, assisted her with the training and developing her lemonade stand. After the day was over, the financial report from Lil Ms. Jamaya Steele was $36.00 dollars after expenses (which included paying her younger sister for assisting with sales).

Lemonade Day happens every year on the first Saturday of May. Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community.

Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
