Geeky Girl has decided to start a business. This is in part a reaction to the book I got her while I was away, A Smart Girl’s Guide to Money. In it, there are ideas for businesses to start, like babysitting or dog walking, and an explanation of profit. So, Geeky Girl spent the better part of yesterday trying to decide what business to start and then calculating her profit. She figured out how much her supplies would cost, set a price for her product and then determined her net profit. She then hired Mr. Geeky and offered him a 10% cut. And she’s giving me a 10% cut to go towards my walking fund. I’m pretty impressed that she’s gone to so much trouble already. Her business? Selling cookies. So, last night, she got out cookbooks, selected a couple of recipes, and made a shopping list. She also made a sign to put on her booth. The plan is to set up at the street corner. I’m hoping at the very least to keep that entrepreneurial spirit alive.
