Michael Holthouse founded Lemonade Day — a chance for thousands of youth across the U.S. to operate a lemonade stand and acquire a taste for entrepreneurship. “Lemonade Day is about teaching kids how to achieve whatever their American dream is. And what’s fair about America is that everyone has an opportunity, no matter whom they are or where you came from,” he said. “Through Lemonade Day, we’ve changed lives by changing the way kids see the world — not as a place of scarcity, but a place of opportunity.”
