Celebrating Young Entrepreneurs on Lemonade Day

I will celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit on May 1 by serving my own twist of a half-and-half lemonade with iced Russian Caravan tea.

For inspiration, watch the film with Will Arnett on how Arnold Palmer created his own “lemonade-and-iced tea beverage that has become a piece of Americana.”

I hope that the true American spirit will come to field of business and I will therefore organize an event on Lemonade Day with my new project called Americanized. Here is an excerpt from the article, Government regulation: Lemonade Day done wrong, by Nicolas S. Martin:

Lemonade Day is promoted as a way to “inspire a budding entrepreneur!” But it is actually a dispiriting lesson about how hard it now is to become an entrepreneur, whether you’re an adult or a child. It is about how even the most harmless enterprise, the humble lemonade stand, has been sacrificed on the altar of government regulation.

(Los Angeles Times, May 1, 2011.)

Selling lemonade shouldn’t be a crime! Did you attend the Lemonade Freedom Day in August, 2012?

Cheers!

  1. Hi Martin,
    Thanks for the post on Lemonade Day, the power of entrepreneurship and the problem with too much regulation. It’s one thing to provide regulations that protect citizens and quality of life, but when these regulations extend to preventing something as apparently harmless as a young person’s lemonade stand on a day meant to celebrate entrepreneurship, perhaps things have gone too far. Thanks for sharing this post with the BizSugar community.
