Do today's children care about business? Apparently they do. We made a trip to Belleview School in Sonora, California, and asked the third graders what kind of business they'd like to own someday. Here are some of the answers they gave us:

  • I would like to own a dude ranch when I am older because I love animals, especially horses. The name of my dude ranch would be Palomino Getaway. The type of service I would give is breakfast in bed each morning at 8 o'clock. This would be a great business for me because I am great with horses. --Lindsey
  • When I am older I would like to own a business called Hot Glass Classes. I would teach people how to sculpt things with hot glass, like a candle holder made out of glass. It would be fun to teach people how to sculpt things out of melted glass. --Dylan
