ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT (my son!)

"

for beautiful hawley.. your comment somewhere... reminded me of this picture. my son a couple years back, bit by the entrepreneurial bug..


picked a product; picked a price (25 cents per handful) staked out his territory...


and now i have to find the one of my daughter and her friend katie w/their version of a lemonade stand...


three tv trays lined up on the sidewalk.. 200 dixie cups, filled 3/4 with a "secret" lemonade recipe


one car passing by every two hours...

Sort of similar to how Apple Computer got started. Gotta love free enterprise!

hahaha that is SOOO CUTE!! I love it! And I blushed to see that you posted it for me :) I am honored!

How precious... Kids are adorable. I love it.

I used to "set up shop" in a common room in our house, taking brushes, shoes, jackets, purses, jewelry, hats, etc. from all around the house and making my desk. When it was all lined up and pretty, I would let my brother and mother come "shopping". They'd choose their items and I would write up a receipt, and they'd pretend to pay me. I think I may have even bagged them for them, occassionally done gift wrap. hahaha... It was my favorite thing.

Since the age of 6, I wanted to open a store called "Hawleywood" - which I have since decided would be cooler as "Hawley Would"!! :)

bh: thank you for triggering that wonderful memory..

and for sharing yours... how precious is that? ..plus gift wrap.. puts such a smile on my face

and you've definitely got the entrepreneurial bug in your dna (as they say)..

i'm visualizing "hawley would" as a coffee shop, slash, book store, slash, cyber cafe-ish type place
with the occasional live band and frequent open mics...

and i may be interested if you franchise..


"to our future investors and happy customers!"

much love, ~s.
