Dothan kicks off first children's business fair

Kids got the chance to show off their businesses at the Wiregrass Commons Mall.

The first Dothan Alabama Children's Business Fair was free and open to everyone.

16 different groups of young entrepreneurs were responsible for setting up and assisting customers.

The event was put on by Dr. Sheila Truelove, who believes it's never too early to chase your dreams.

"Allow them to build relationships, it teaches them just confidence you know to speak about what they're doing and who they want to become, and it's just important that we start early so we can create that growth mindset and that winning mentality," Truelove said.

Next year's fair is already scheduled for July 20, 2020.
