When we first decided to bring Lemon-Aid back for its 25th anniversary, we had so many amazing ideas but knew we had to start on the smaller side and grow into some of the activities we had brainstormed. But sometimes you also need to leap into the deep end head first, especially when you get repeated requests.
The first of those requests will be back this summer by popular demand: the original Lemon-Aid Stands and Kits. In nearly every conversation we had, someone would ask about the Lemon-Aid stands all over Tulsa. We originally felt it would be too much for us to take on, especially in our first year back. But then we went back to the drawing board and realized it was do-able. So we jumped right back in, offering up to 100 Lemon-Aid Kits for volunteers to set up around the City of Tulsa over Labor Day Weekend.
But not surprisingly, the requests from Tulsa's very entrepreneurial youth didn't stop there. They wanted to learn as a part of this experience. Teachers, parents and youth themselves have reached out to us, asking for advice on what it takes to create the best Lemon-Aid stand possible. Since we don't have a one-size-fits-all answer, we thought this would be a great opportunity to gather tips and tricks from some of the most business-savvy, community-driven and entrepreneurial people we know.
Introducing "Q&Aid," our new on-going interview series. We will ask a series of questions to some of the top entrepreneurs and city/business leaders both in and outside of Tulsa. We hope their answers and advise will get your creative juices flowing!
