Tip #6: A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned.

For Christmas, Ducky got a new piggy bank. He has been trying his hardest to save his money. However, this is a tough tip for Ducky to follow, because there is a corner store near our home that sales penny candy! He just loves penny candy, but he is resisting and so far he has saved $0.42! That is the most money Ducky has ever saved! His goal is $10 so we can buy a Star Wars Lego set to put on his Lemonade stand. He thinks it will help attract customers.

Tip # 5

Always pay the Bills on time.

This tip seems obvious, but if your business is booming, like Ducky’s and your having fun- you might let it slip your mind. One time Ducky forgot to pay the Bills and they were really angry! So mark your calendars and set a Google reminder! Because no one wants the Bills to show up uninvited.

Tip # 4

Always be prepared.

Ducky always likes to be prepared. He has found this to be extra important when doing business.  When packing your briefcase for a meeting or business trip Ducky’s motto is “When in doubt, pack it.” You would not believe how many times a stinky boot or a clown wig is just what he needs to get the job done. Don’t forget to pack some snacks too.

Tip # 2 Beware of Traveling Sales Koalas

Tip # 2

Beware Traveling Sales Koalas!

Ducky’s first tip, being cute, can sometimes mean trouble when trying to buy wholesale items. Ducky has fallen victim to Traveling Sales Koalas, several times. They are so cute and their offers are too good to be true.

For example, Ducky loves Sister Shubert rolls. Christmas Koala (as seen in the picture above) offered him a great deal on Brother Shubert rolls. When Ducky got them in the mail, they were stinky old sushi rolls! Pembleton would not let Ducky sell the Brother Shubert rolls because of the animal health code.

Another time, Ducky bought a year’s supply of chocolate milk mix only to find out they were made with a fake chocolate called carob. YUCK! Ducky’s customers only like the real stuff.

Then there was the time that Ducky thought he was purchasing the real Eifel Tower in Paris, but then one week later he received a 3 inch miniature in the mail. After all of those horrible purchases, Pembleton warned Ducky not to buy stuff from traveling sales Koalas, but the power of cuteness is hard to resist, especially from those wearing Christmas sweaters.
