Young People EVERYWHERE are starting companies,
creating new toys, inventing new products, and starting
up peer groups to help their community. The list of
things they are doing are as endless as ways you can do
the same! So, how are they doing it? They get an idea,
they find people who can help, they find a way to start,
and from there, it just starts rolling.
SO what do you
need to get started?

Here's How

1dream it.
What is ur dream? U might have more
than 1, GREAT! Now write them
down. See ur idea on paper, this helps
u visualize it better and set ur idea
into motion!
DREAM BIG ~ anything is possible!

2 believe it.
Belief in ur idea and in urself is KEY!
Without it, u'll just toss ur idea aside.
KNOW that ur idea is good and can be
added to, to make it even better.
KNOW that anything is possible. KNOW
that u have all the inner strength
and confidence to make anything happen!

KNOW it! FEEL it!

3 create it.
Now is the fun part! Think of ways to
e ur idea. If u don't know where to
start, start by asking people who might
know. Do research in the library or
internet. Get out there...ASK
QUESTIONS! You'll find someone who
knows someone who can help u. I

4 got it!

Now ur movin'! Keep going. Keep
creating. Allow ur idea to evolve and
change along the way. Take advice ONLY
when it feels right for u! If people try
to down ur idea, just move on...they are
just jealous that they didn't come up
with it themselves. There are plenty of
people who will be supportive of ur
idea. Surround urself with optimism
and encouragement. Ask lots of
questions...and did I mention...

Have a story that you
would like to share with
us about a business you
started, or some other
way you are living your
dream? Please write a
short story about what
you did, and how you
did it and SEND IT in to
us. If we think other
kids might like it, we'll
put it up on this page
for others to read!


One of our summer projects is to
raise money for "Shoes That Fit."
We have a great corner to sell
lemonade - so this is what we are
doing! We've had four lemonade
stands so far and have raised over
$200, plus a generous donation of
Sparkletts water from our local
Sparkletts deliveryman.

"Shoes That Fit" is a charity that
pairs corporations with needy
children in schools across America.
These children receive new shoes
and school clothes. We became
aware that in our middle school in
Santa Monica, CA. not every
student has a decent pair of shoes.
Our neighbor Marina Drasnin, who
published a photo book about little
shoes called Little Feet, told us
about "Shoes That Fit" and we're
very happy that she did.

With the help of friends like Molly
Southam, Melody Wise, and Emma
Brayfield, we hope to raise a lot of
money by the end of the summer.

let anyone down it. Have
faith that it is a good
YOU came up with it!
Recently I started to BMX. I pretty much got in to it because my best friend at the
time was doing it and it looked so fun. So i did it. When i started, everyone was a
little bit worried about me but they all supported me in doing it! I never really won
any races at all being i race the guyz, eveyones always telling me If i race the girls
i'd have better chances or winning but i like riding with the guyz. I can't wait to see
their reaction when one i day i come in first place! Thhats kinda been a lil dream i
have been having, winning! At the end of the season, I was 15 year old girl state
champ! I was great I was so happy! Now i have something to look foward to
when it starts back up again, another win!
