Bizzy Girls, was great, it exceeded expectations this summer.  My 7 year old (yes 7!)  developed a product line, learned about branding, cost vs. profit, elevator pitch and toured various stores in the vicinity of Third Street. Look for Chatty Madi to launch her new line of home decor.

The girls created business names and marketing plans to go along with their fashion and home decor related ideas. When the day finally arrived, all the hard work paid off.  The girls were so proud as they presented their products. This can only pay off in the long run for for young girls!

Bizzy Girls Entrepreneurs!
Meet Kate Kate The Fashion Plate..and her friends,The Bizzy Girls. (ages 6-10)

Kate is an aspiring fashion designer who lives in New York with her mom and two adorable dogs. Kate and her friends have little businesses and big dreams.

Kate's mom is a famous fashion magazine editor and head  the costume collection at a big museum (sound familiar)? This gives Kate and the Bizzy Girls access to the world of high fashion, where they get themselves into trouble, faster than they can get out.

In "I Have To Be Me" Kate's mom arranges for Kate to help decorate the windows at Bergs,  New York's most famous fashion store. Kate thinks this is her chance to shine. But  when Kate arrives at Bergs, she finds the dresses "boooring". Using her creative flair, Kate gives the clothes her own touch... until the owner of Bergs walks in  and sees what Kate is doing. Now  Kate is big trouble.. what will happen to Kate's dreams of being a fashion designer?

    The Beach Reporter                   Tweens become entrepreneurs at RB Camp

Monday, August 5, 2013  
 by Carley Dryden  

                                                              Laura Hong has been sketching clothing designs at home since she was 5 years old.                                                                      Now, at just 10, the Redondo Beach resident has her own fashion business. During one                                                                   week at the Bizzy Girls Camp, Hong made 18 clothing items, including a long, flowy                                                                         dress she sewed herself in one hour.

                                                         The camp, for girls ages 7 to 12, teaches entrepreneurship through hands-on activities;                                                           the girls create their own product line, usually in fashion, accessories or home décor.

The campers, led by an elementary school teacher and assistants from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, develop their own mini business plan, follow a budget, name their company, make business cards, choose packaging and learn visual display, marketing and social media. The camp also focuses on decision-making, problem-solving and respecting each other’s ideas....see full artcile here:

Ten-year-old Laura Hong shows off her merchandise.        Photo by Rachel Reeves

Redondo Beach pre-teens were busy arranging homemade merchandise on long tables, counting money, and turning on smiles for potential customers last Friday, working diligently at a makeshift market inside a church on Broadway.

The girls were excited. Their products were selling, and quickly.

“Sorry, I don’t have any more of those headbands,” nine-year-old Sam Sternberg said. “They’re, like, a thing right now.”

Her company, I Mustache U – a play on “I Must Ask You,” she told me – sells clothing and accessories emblazoned with felt mustaches.

Ten-year-old Laura Hong was also apologetic; her clothes were selling out, and she had dollar signs in her eyes.

“This is my favorite,” she said, taking a dress off the rack behind her. “It’s six dollars but sorry, somebody bought it. This is a jacket that could also be a blanket,” she said, looking at me with apology. “This one is being sold too, sorry” – she said, but, not wanting to lose business or brand recognition, added quickly – “I mean, I can give you a candy!” see full article here:

Santa Monica Mirror, July 2012

SM PLACE — While Santa Monica Place was bustling during the lunch hour, the Community Room was bustling with the girls of Camp Kate Kate and their proud parents.

The attendees of Camp Kate Kate, a young girls entrepreneurship camp, presented the final products of their hard work for the past two weeks to their parents and teachers. These 7 to 14-year-olds all founded their own companies and created marketable, profitable products.
“All these girls are very serious little business girls,” Kanafani said. “And they'’re very enthusiastic and they want to make money!”
Whatever their products were, the girls learned a lot and made many friends in the process.
“It was a lot of fun,” 10-year-old Allie Idelson said. “I liked everything! We got to do so many things! One day we went to a spa because the person who owned the spa was an entrepreneur and the next day we went to the market because the person who owns that is an entrepreneur, so each day we did something different and it was really cool.”

Allie and her friend and business partner Billie Morton,10, created a fashion line called “Pink Girls.”
"We created clothes and accessories and everything has pink in it,” Morton said. “And we try to make our clothes and accessories as colorful as possible!”"

Morton’s mother, Jennifer Morton, is an entrepreneur herself as well as a Santa Monican; she owns two restaurants in Santa Monica, Blue Plate and Blue Plate. 
“It’s been fantastic,” Jennifer Morton said. “"Learning about developing a product from start to finish and learning how much a product costs and the reality of going into business was a great experience for the girls.”"

Samantha Sternberg,, came up with the idea of “Creative Girls,” a company that specializes in reversible purses and coin pouches. Sternberg proudly announced that she is “8-and-a-half years old” and dressed up as Coco Chanel for her presentation.

Kanafani, founder of Bizzy Girls, is very pleased with the camp and the girls’ accomplishments. She also stresses the idea of empowering girls at a young age, "Recent New York University studies revealed that girls’ self-esteem is now peaking at age 10. We have to provide experiences to keep self esteem growing, not declining," Kanafani said. See full article
