For weeks, Konos Kids have been studying what it means to be an entrepreneur. They've read Truett Cathy's Eat More Chikin and toured his headquarter learning in the process how one man relied on godly principles to guide him in the world of business. They've stretched their brains to grasp the economic principles presented in Richard Maybury's Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? And after reading, The Toothpaste Millionaire, they dreamed of emulating Rufus' entrepreneurial qualities that gave him the ability to make millions off producing and selling toothpaste.
Planning, investing and creating, they brought to market day hours of sweat and toil - finally ready to tackle the title of entrepreneur.
