When my kids wanted to do a lemonade stand in our neighborhood, I asked them for a more original idea. They decided to sell plants – because we had a number of road-side nurseries in our area. I humored them, and said we would try a plant rental business. I took them to get a business license, made them come to the printer to do brochures, forced them to come to Home Depot to get potting soil and we turned our garage in to a small plant nursery. They licked the stamps and the envelopes. Then we got a real customer – and then we had a dozen. Three years later we still have a small but growing (no pun intended) family business. We water every week and we all do it together!
