“Million Bazillion,” is Marketplace’s first-ever #podcast for kids. Host Jed Kim will answer the sometimes awkward, sometimes surprising questions kids have about money. 

Secrets for starting a business Million Bazillion

There are lots of great reasons to want to start a business: solving a problem, pursuing a passion, even making some money. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work, and even if you do everything right, it may not work out. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you failed — thinking through a business idea can build some really great skills! This week, we talk with a bunch of expert kids and grown-ups about turning an idea into a full-blown business. Plus, Jed bakes us some cookies! And just because the season is over doesn’t mean we don’t still want to hear from you! Keep sending us your questions about money at Marketplace.org/million!

Free fishing days are a perfect opportunity for beginners to try out fishing for the first time. If you already have a fishing license, consider taking a friend or family member who has never been fishing, out on the water for the day.

In Preparation: Learn how to fish, find places to fish and boat using the interactive map, get a fishing license or register your boat.
