Speaking - Have you ever ... ?

Q: Have you ever tried to start

your own business💰?

A: Yes, I have tried to start my own business. When I was 5, I sold Kool Aid in front of my home🏡. Unfortunately, I didn't make enough money to retire early😉! However, it is a fond memory🙄 of my childhood.

Kool Aid = a powder that is added to water to make a fruit-flavored drink.

retire = to stop working, usually for the rest of your life.

fond memory = If you have fond memories of someone or something, you remember them with pleasure🙄

    @Robbie English Teacher yes, kids sell something mostly for fun, but maybe you can find some kids’ business talent.
