Students who participate generate their own customer base through cold call and referral selling. Like other small businesses, they receive products at a wholesale rate and offer them to customers at a retail rate. Students use the deposits collected with each order to pay the wholesale cost of the products, therefore they do not use any of their own money upfront for inventory. The student makes a profit on each sale made.
In our program, students run their own businesses. Things like food, gas, rent, and personal items are paid using the sales profit. Because this is often a first-time practice, all students are personally coached in business management and shown how to stay organized and keep their expenses low to maximize their profit.
