MBA Class Syllabus

Professor and successful entrepreneur Emma Kristine will teach you the basics of running a profitable business and how to maximize your profits.

#1--Pick something you love (like lemonade and cookies)
#2--Pick the right partners (like a sister and two friends)
#3--Find the loudest yeller possible to be your main advertiser

#4--Price your goods right (75 cents for a glass of lemonade, $1 for a cookie, $2 for a dozen cookies, and $2.15 for a lemonade and a cookie)
#5--Pick your venue right (minimum cars per hour: 2)
#6--Quality is everything. Taste test everything to make sure it's okay, then let everyone else taste test it too.
#7--Don't underestimate the power of relatives with deep pockets as customers


PS You're all invited to a lemonade and cookie party at my house tomorrow.

I think I would like a dozen cookies. That's a pretty sweet deal!

Taste testing is the best part of selling, isn't it? Looks like fun!

A right of passage that all of us did at one time or another. Of course prices are far higher now than they were in the old days.

Looks yummy Emma! Please save a couple of cups and a dozen cookies for Grandma and I.

No doubt you are destined for a successful business career.

Love, Grandpa-Grandma
