We received our pack of Ship It activities in the mail from the folks at Real World Scholars. Students have been busy leafing through, picking out their favorites that they’d like to do themselves. I’m not forcing any of my Grit9 students to do them, it’s optional…with the caveat that they are already engaged in some serious business-building.

# 6 – Kylie the treasurer –

Kylie brought in a guest speaker from Superior Federal Credit Union to evaluate our business model canvas.

# 7 – Chelsey Spicer – Contact Young Entrepreneurs Association for business review

YEA rep Nicole Scott (of the Lima Area Chamber of Commerce) visited Grit9 to explain the program. Chelsey is now joining, paid by Grit9, to create her own business. Go Chelsey!

#13 – Mr. Suter – Get feedback on logo specs

Sent the Fiverr logo specs to area business contacts and past students. It came down to the G9 bold font orange, green, or blue. As blue is a complimentary color to our main school color of orange, we went with blue.

# 25 – Mr. Suter

Contacted Fiverr in October 2016 to get logo drafts:

# 29 – Mr. Suter – Set up Shop at Farmers Market

The market told us we must have “home-produced goods” to qualify for a spot. Websites are apparently not in that category.

# 32 – Mr. Suter – Call Chamber of Commerce for help

Grit9 is scheduled to present at “Wake, Rattle, and Roll” the Chamber’s morning meeting at 7 am October 27th to share our services with the entire Lima area chamber of commerce.
