Welcome to my blog! I share my business ideas, new vocabulary words, and even just business insights from my view as a kid. Feel free to share these thoughts with your family or classroom!
Cookie Business - Part 9 "Check Your Weather App – There’s a ‘Brainstorm’ Session Rolling In!"
Have I told you about my new office? So, here’s the deal - I used to work upstairs – second door on the left. I shared an office with Mom. Once my business , Bea is for Business, started to take off, Dad thought it might be cool for me to have my own space. So, we teamed up, and he helped me to fix up his old toolshed and turn it into an office outside. And it’s #awesome.
Today after school, Kristen and I decided to meet up in my office and work through some of the details of her business. We wanted to start figuring out some good, strong, strategic (big word – means thinking ahead!) places where she can sell her cookies.
This is what I like to call brainstorming time!
To brainstorm , I pull out my Big Ideas notebook. Then, the two of us start thinking. The thing with brainstorming is that ALL ideas are welcome. So, you might see some crazy, wild, big, hairy, scary ideas, but that’s okay! Write them down! #NoBadIdeas
Kristen and I throw them all out there and then talk through the best ones. Here’s our list of the best ones – as in, the best places to sell her cookies:
- By the train stop
- At the park
- At the baseball fields
- At the town square
- In front of the library
- On the corner of Commerce and Washington Streets
- Outside the Market Square grocery store
- In front of one of our houses
- Over email (our moms could send out a note to other parents)
- At birthday parties
I'll keep you posted on what we decide!
