Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

Chasing the Dream Entrepreneurship Camp sponsored by The Money School of Delaware provided youngsters between the ages of 9-13, an opportunity to learn the basics of starting a business.  Last Thursday they were given the tools and a venue to showcase what they had learned.

A miniature Marketplace was set up in Rodney Square in Wilmington where the campers had an opportunity to sell their products, which included body scrubs, hand crafted jewelry, sunglasses, candy, plants, lemonade, popcorn, metal sculptures even hourly math tutoring sessions.

These young entrepreneurs obviously also learned another very important lesson, the value of customer satisfaction.  They greeted each passerby with a smile and eagerly answered questions about their products.

There was a heavy downpour on and off during the day but that did not stop people from coming out to support.  There was a steady stream of customers as well as WDEL Radio personality, Amy Cherry and a 6ABC News cameraman.

I was truly impressed with not only the products these entrepreneurs had created, but how each of their personalities and positive attitudes showed brightly despite the dark clouds looming overhead.

Kudos to The Money School of Delaware for supporting the youth of today with their futures of tomorrow.

Debra Forbes was honored for creating onsite financial training programs.  These United Way sponsored events are held during normal business hours making it convenient for attendees.  Jim Godfrey was honored for partnering with The Money School in assisting consumers with debt reduction and credit counseling.  Arming consumers with important financial tools has a positive impact on the community as a whole.

Kamysha Martin, representing Theatrical Fusion, presented a DVD entitled “Shopaholics”, designed upon the reality TV concept but with a twist.  These free web based videos were created for teens and young adults to educate them about finances.  As an introduction to the world of budgeting, debt management, smart spending, and debit vs credit card usage.  Financial management is something that either parents or schools should teach but when it’s not, by the time they enter college it’s possibly too late, something I can personally relate to!

The unique concept of this program is that it gives the viewers the ability to choose the ending scene which is then played out accordingly.  The DVD also featured Intervention classes as a follow up, these web based video can be seen here.

The Honorable Governor Jack Markell gave a brief history about The Money School of Delaware.  

In 1999, The Money School launched it’s first 1 day conference with few attendees, but today has over 600 programs within the state of Delaware.  Instructors are all volunteers, and a small staff of 6 operates the main office.  Ronni Cohen, Executive Director of DFLI works diligently with the Governor to ensure the successful growth of these programs in the state.

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING!

REPEAT

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING!

REPEAT

Here we go again another excessive heat warning – PLEASE try to stay cool, hydrated and check on the elderly.

Summer is my favorite season and it’s on days like this that I would love to be home lounging around the pool instead of driving 3 hours a day adding exhaust fumes to an already damaged ozone layer!

Today is the 4th day of my black and white work week, and so far so good I haven’t spilled anything which is amazing since it seems like white always attracts dirt, I don’t know how Lisa Raye does it!
