Class Activity: Meet and Greet Let’s discuss how to act and speak like a business professional when talking with people in person. Can you give me an example of how to act professionally when meeting someone for the first time? Examples: Use eye contact, speak confidently, firm handshake, use open body language (don’t cross arms when speaking), listen intently, paraphrase when possible, ask questions, etc. Let’s practice with each other! Would 2 people come up to the front of the room to demonstrate? (Ask them to introduce their names to each other and their favorite thing to do). Does anyone have any constructive feedback? Would anyone else like to try? Class Activity: Greetings: Find a partner and create a fun and unique handshake/greeting. (for example.. a combination of.... front-hand slap, backhand slap, fist bump, body turn 360, clap, and then high five). You can make it simple and boring or multi-stepped and entertaining. Ask for volunteers to demonstrate the new greeting!

Internet Safety


Ensure all online communications, especially with people you don’t know, can be easily monitored by your parents. If you are under 18, communicate with your parents that you will be building your business by utilizing social media (if over 13), email, and audience-reaching platforms to market your business and sell your products/services. They must be aware of your online activity. All students under 18 should consult with their parents before opening and managing a social media account. Any student under 13 will not be able to use social media. They absolutely can ask their parents to create and help manage new social media accounts which will be specifically used for business purposes.


Never meet with anyone alone, ever. If you schedule an in-person meeting/lesson/session, ask a parent to accompany you. If you are engaging with customers in a virtual setting, be sure an adult can monitor your sessions.


Never share personal information online with others, such as your birthdate, home address (unless you are operating your business out of your home), social security number, or other sensitive information. Keep all interactions professional. Report anything unusual or inappropriate to the instructor or your parents/guardians immediately.



Online Scams


Let’s take a minute to talk and learn about SCAMS and how to avoid them.


CLASS ACTIVITY: Scam Examples Can students share any examples of scams?


You can often identify the scam by looking at the web address. Notice if the web address is nonsense. For instance, if I get an email from Paypal telling me to log in, I’ll click on the link and then get redirected to a page that looks IDENTICAL to PAYPAL BUT the web address is absolute gibberish, and it doesn’t appear as a www.paypal.com web address as it should.


Approach everything online with extreme caution and never share information with anyone online that you don’t trust. And, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
