The Lemonade Stories

What does Richard Branson of Virgin Group, Russell Simmons of Def Jam records and Arthur Blank of Home Depot have in common?

Besides being entrepreneurs and successful ones in fact, they have a great person to support and inspire their work. Their mother. The Lemonade Stories plans on a concept that kids in America usually set up a lemonade stall in their front yard with the help of their mother for some pocket money. The ongoing meet up Sembang Sembang organized by Warisan Global will be featuring this very heart warming movie during their next meet up.
