Nishal: Wooden Coasters
He knew of a tree that had recently been cut down. He used the wood from the tree to make wooden coasters.

Halle: Caramel Popcorn
She used her five dollars to buy ingredients to make and sell caramel popcorn. We heard it was delicious!

Alex: 50/50 Raffle
He used his five dollars to purchase a roll of raffle tickets. After getting his project started, and discussing it with his parents, he purchased a $10 raffle permit. Alex's project was the most profitable.

Brayden: Lawn Mowing
He used his five dollars to get his project started by purchasing fuel for his family's lawn mower. He was then able to begin mowing lawns.

Cole: Car Wash
He used his five dollars to buy tiny bottles of soap and a microfiber towel. He used those items to offer a car washing service.

Lily: Custom T-Shirts
She used her five dollars to create two sample shirts to advertise for pre-orders on Facebook. She used the money from her pre-orders to purchase the necessary shirts and ordered the iron-on custom design from Etsy. Lily's project was the second-most profitable.

The students learned that it is possible to be profitable when having very little startup capital.
