Lil Ice Cream Dude's COOL World

Beau Shell, the Lil’ Ice Cream Dude, is the 13-year old KidCEO who owns and operates his budding ice cream empire. Beau started his business in 2012 at the age of 8 when he asked his mom to buy him an ice cream cart for his birthday in lieu of presents and a big party. He convinced her to invest his birthday money in an ice cream cart that was made with a tiny freezer and some old bicycle tires. Now six years later and after working over 400 events, Beau is Ready to GROW!  He is ready to move out if his parents garage into a place of his own.  With the help of a very generous donor and friend, Beau has been given the opportunity to move into a 1400 square foot space with a supportive land encouraging lease.  The space is bare and it needs a lot of work, but Beau is ready to make it his own.

Risks and challenges

The risk of setting my crowdfunding campaign goal at $20,000 is that I know it will take a much more to get my ice cream shop running smoothly and functioning at a high level. However, I believe that if I can meet this goal, I will have enough money to satisfy the necessary requirements to open my shop. The installation of the floors and ceilings alone will consume most of the $20,000 but there will be enough left over to purchase the basic equipment I will need to get up and running. Once opened, my family and I will be able to work and earn the rest of the money needed to grow, exponentially, my COOL World. The challenge is to convince others to support my dream and to give me a chance.
