Saturday OC Children’s Business Fair was a roller coaster of emotions. We had highs and lows; we danced and we cried.
Together, we learned a few important lessons:
- rejections are part of the process and can be bounced from
- not everyone would like our ideas, and that is ok
- smiles go a long way
We go to these events to experience life, feel it, and learn the skills to navigate it. It is like real-life role-play when you get the concept on the spot because you are in it—my favorite type of learning.
As a bonus, we took some prizes home.
We competed against 17 other young businesses and took home First Place for Most Creative Business and Grand Prize for Overall Most Promising Business. I am proud of my young entrepreneurs.
