College students are amassing enormous debt in their quest for higher education. No one needs to preach the importance of a college degree, but to financially strangle yourself to attain that goal is absurd! College graduates need to start their adult lives financially stable, rather than overcome with debt. Lemonade Stand Economics is not about avoiding college or starting the next corporate empire. It's about nurturing a new generation of smart, educated, take charge entrepreneurs ready and willing to impact the world by first impacting their own financial well-being.
It seems like there are thousands of books on how to cut your expenses. Lemonade Stand Economics is different. It is a non-traditional approach to a financial epidemic. It shows young adults how to work for themselves and make more money, far more than minimum wage, enough money to pay for college. The majority of today’s college students are lulled into an acceptance of student debt as the only way to pay for college. This debt is a cancer, sapping their creativity, strangling their ability to take risks and robbing them of their financial freedom after graduation. These students are not stupid. They are not lazy. They need to be shown that financial freedom is attainable. It’s not hard if you know what to do. But that’s the problem, at 17 you just don’t know where to start. Lemonade Stand Economics simply says “Here’s what you do... now let’s go do it.”
