Our First Jibboo

Today we had our first business day for Jibbo. We had 6 businesses open - they had to fill in a business application and have it approved with a range of details included (including safety). After we advertised our businesses we had 25 minutes for sales.

The photos below show some of the action
- Mr Lovelock as a client at the 'Narly Nails' stand,
- Sophie's 'Pony Ride' business
- Benjamin learning what it takes to be a bank manager! - 'Phew, that's hard work...'

Here are some things we learnt from our first market day for Jibboo

- We need to charge a bit more for our product.
- We need to bring MORE product so our fruit sticks are longer.
- Always go to Kaitlyn's store - they have 'mean' hats to sell.
- The gambling tax is annoying - we need more stuf to sell so we don't get that tax.
- The bank needs to have the tellers on duty to help me. The people need to stand in a line.
- Next time I should be at my stand half the time and with the bank as a teller half the time.
- I need to make sure people get paid for their weekly jobs - Olivia.
- We need to ask people what they'd like to buy and we're going to do that. - That's called market research.
