This Fall, Angela and Leah are going to pilot a creative activity for a small group of girls called Girl*Preneur.
This will be a cross between an art class and a business venture! We will start with making some of the same kinds of things we’ve made in Art & Apothecary camp—from candles to jewelry to essential oil blends, etc—and we will create some opportunities for the girls to sell their wares. We’ll have a Girl*Preneur Etsy site for one, and in December we will host a mini craft fair here at the Treehouse so that friends and family can come and buy holiday gifts from the girls.
In the process, we’ll make a light study of what it means to create and manage our own business. We will think through things like costs and pricing; who our ideal customer is; quality control; how to get the word out about what we are selling; and what kind of experience we want for our customers to have when they purchase from us. (Any money the girls make will be paid to them through you, their parents.)
Of course, we’ll sprinkle in lots of magic, laughter, teamwork and connection–because we’d have it no other way!
And…if the girls get into it, we might just brainstorm some more business ideas to launch in 2017!
