I am trying to decide whether or not I should start a business this summer. In February, we put on a party for my little brother's eighth birthday. I always love planning parties, and I've been successful at the ones I have done, about three or four of them. After that party, Mom said she thought I would be good at planning children's parties as a business. I loved the idea. I can't believe I didn't think of it before then, because it sounds amazingly fun to me. When we went home later that day, I sat down in my room with Maude (my laptop) and typed up an extensive list of different themed parties and what I would plan for them.
For example:

Theatre Party
Available as a sleep-over (Friday nights only)
For children ages 8-12

Premise: We will be playing acting games and doing makeup and wardrobe, as well as putting on a real play as the finale of the party. The birthday boy/girl will be given the starring role.
Decorations and props: Costume accessories, scripts, props for play
Games: Improvisational acting games, actor’s warm-ups, charades, play to perform
Party favors: A copy of the script, signed by the entire cast, Bowtie or Feather boa, Pictures of themselves in costume (will be sent to them after the party)

I still have the list, and summer is just around the corner. I don't have any money, but fortunately this business wouldn't require much capital. What do you think? Should I go for it?

I was going to have a birthday party sort of like that! Qestion: did you come up with the idea by hearing me talk about it? I doubt the answer is yes.

I think you would be awesome at planning birthday parties! would you pretty please help me with my next one?
