Skillful Business Crafters

Youngsters to sell products at pop-up children’s business fair

At 13, Jackson Cadle has a wealth of sales experience, starting with a lemonade stand. 

“From the time he was about 2, he was selling lemonade at garage sales, and he would end up making more money selling lemonade than we did,” said Jackson’s mother, Jama.

“My husband built a little lemonade stand, and he would stand on a stool and he would ask every customer if they’d like lemonade. He made a lot of tips,” Jama said about Jackson’s early efforts.

Today, he makes and sells homemade canine fare through his business Max + Bella’s Gourmet Dog Treats.

Jackson and his younger brother, Hunter, will be among the about 30 youngsters between ages 6 and 14 flexing their budding entrepreneurial aspirations at the Acton Children’s Business Fair, scheduled for 10 a.m.-noon Saturday at Matera Gardens, 833 South First St.
