Where do you send your young entrepreneur? To business camp. That is where one young man earned the seed money he needed to start his lawn business, reports Savannah Now.
Eleven-year-old Marquis Elamâ€™s lawn care business not only undercut his competition, but it also offered an additional service â€” thatching.
â€œThatâ€™s what makes me unique,â€ the rising sixth-grader at Bethesda Academy said Friday in his presentation. â€œI will go the extra mile to do a good job.â€
With prices starting at a very reasonable $15 per lawn and a polished sales pitch that belied his age, Marquis took the top prize of $100 in seed money to help kick-start his new enterprise.
