Young Entrepreneurship In Action

Now this reminded me of my youth!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4987966.stm

Tomorrows entrepreneurs in action, although I think they are under pricing - I would pitch at about or just under the local sweet shop.

I once sold almost my entire Hornby train set at school piecemeal, although I didnt half get into trouble with my mother when she found the price list in my coat pocket. Thinking about it I vastly under priced that too. Common error with a new businesses, especially when you are only 12 years old.

'Starburst', isn't it? They just don't taste the same.. just like when they changed 'Marathons' to 'Snickers'...

very good
When I was about 7 or 8 I was allowed to set up a stall (well;a camping table actually) outside my dad's premises and sell all the freebie baseball caps,stickers and keyrings he brought back from trade fairs.
