This is the story of Ella, who when faced with a cash crunch, learns business skills to solve her problem. Ella and her friends, Madison, Jack and Tyler, have formed a band. But they lack the powerful sound of an electric guitar. Ella's parents are in no hurry to buy one. Instead, they offer to instruct Ella on ways she can raise the money herself.
