Introduction

The Just for Clicks Business Game has been developed to provide you with a game like experience in the  adventures of business.  If you take the time and work through the whole game you will have developed your own "kid's online digital information product" ( KODIP) and business opportunity .

The Just for Clicks Business Game is very different  from the ones you are use to playing.  We haven't developed any action characters or any special effects but we do offer you a chance to play something that will challenge you in new ways.  You may even find that  friends and family  will find a little extra time to help you out and discuss things you haven't discussed before.  Dinner time could transform into a "business meeting" and a family car ride could become a "business trip". Even your friends will be impressed with your status as a young businessperson or Business Kid. You may want to set-up a business club to help you get started.

The "Just for Kicks Business Game" has been created to provide you with some good experience in setting up a business.  This should be a very exciting moment for you, if you've never started your own business.  If you have a little business experience from running a lemonade stand, paper route, fast-food, retail or whatever, you will  still benefit from  this new experience  in developing a digital product and an Internet based business.

By walking through the game  you will  experience the rewards of developing  a business.  Your success will come in many forms, for instance, success from getting your business going with a name and product, learning about business, discovering opportunities you never dreamed were possible, improving your reading, writing, math & decision making skills and developing as a business person and  entrepreneur.

 The "Game" has been developed for kids of all ages, 8 to 18,  who will enjoy  varying levels of difficulty.  You can enjoy a few parts of it or do the whole game.  The "Game" is free and nothing is really sold.  It is "just for clicks" at your computer mouse.  There are future versions  being developed that will further your challenge and  your business experience .  

Please keep in mind that the purpose of "Just For Clicks Business Game "is to have fun creating a business, developing skills and experience. There is no cost and no business risk, so just work through the process, learn, click away  and have some fun. You can do it online or offline.
