Last week, our business-people-in-training got the chance to listen to guest speaker Rayce Nahmias tell us all about his life as a business-owner! Mr. Nahmias, an HHAI graduate, owns two local restuarants -- The Lit Moose and Coalition. He also happens to be the cousin of our very own Josh!
The 3rd graders have reason to want to absorb the wisdom of Mr. Nahmias. After all, they recently ran a successful business of their own. Soon we will begin our classroom mini-economy, where the students will be able to develop and run their own businesses for class currency. Knowing this, the students eagerly prepared questions in advance of Mr. Nahmias's presentation.
Mr. Nahmias had so much helpful advice to share! He gave us lots to think about, including how to decide the name/brand of your business, testing your product on a small scale, and the importance of accepting feedback from your customers. Like all savvy businessmen, Mr. Nahmias understands incentives -- if the students answered questions correctly, they got a free hat!
Little people, big minds.
