Five Star Review on Amazon by Spencer X Smith
Seth Godin famously said that any non-fiction book really only needs to be five pages long. What if the book is not just a book, though? What if it’s a book, how-to guide, and step-by-step success manual all rolled into one? “More Than A Lemonade Stand,” is all of these things, and it is written by a true expert to boot.
The subtitle of “The Complete Guide for Planning, Implementing & Running a Successful Youth Entrepreneur Camp” is exactly the right description for this excellent guide. As a former kid entrepreneur and current adult entrepreneur, I can assure you the real-life business concepts taught in this book will benefit both the kids themselves and the adults involved in the teaching.
Kudos to Julie for her excellent work. I’d give this book 6 stars if I could…get it now!
