Tips from Caine

Remember Caine Monroy? 9-year-old Caine spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store, and invited people Imageto play. Business was nonexistent until a filmmaker named Nirvan stopped at the store. Caine’s Arcade has gone viral and serves as a source of inspiration for young entrepreneurs and seasoned business people alike.

Caine recently shared what he learned at a TEDx Youth Conference. His advice?

  1. Be nice to customers. (This one is circled)
  2. Do a business that is fun.
  3. Do not give up. (This one is circled and underlined THREE times)
  4. Start with what you have.
  5. Use recycled stuff.

Good advice.

Caine’s success has now sparked the Imagination Foundation and a scholarship fund. You can get a Caine’s Arcade staff T-shirt too. All profits from shirts sold online will go towards the Imagination Foundation to find, foster and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in kids.
