Five-year-old Gabriella has begun her budding business career, selling "lemonade" on Sumner Street, Batavia.
Well, it's not really lemonade. It's ice tea, but that's the sign her mom made for her, she explained.
After I took the picture above, she proudly showed me the money she's made today (below).
Here we have a young lady eager to join the work force... Kudos to you gabriella!!!....you are off to a great start in life and wish you great success!!!!....
I wonder how long before some government bureaucrat reads this and tries to shut her down. Don't laugh. it's happened in Rochester and Henrietta.
We're all very proud of you Gabriella and support your business venture!
Uncle Andy is gonna want his sales tax dollars, I hope she kept track and fills out the proper paperwork!
Might want to pull the story, Howard... Might get this girl into a lot of trouble!
(However, as folks are mentioning her getting into the 'work-force', the State/county/city paperwork and fines crack-down and other legal issues might just be a good way to introduce her and her friends to what doing business here in NY is REALLY like!) I'd suggest Rob McCutcheon to represent her! lol
