Her teacher encourages the class and reminds them, “....All of you can become entrepreneurs.” She meets this opportunity with determination to create a successful business and reach a financial goal. Savannah uses the funds from a grant her teacher was awarded to start her business. She names her business … Terrific Slimerrific!
Savannah’s business is off to a great start, until she runs into a conflict. She and her best friend, Spending Spencer, go to the mall and do not spend the money wisely. After not taking heed of the advice her father gives to save her money BEFORE spending, Savannah discovers she doesn’t have enough money to cover the cost of her expenses. Savannah is devastated by her realization. She has to figure out how to get enough money to continue Terrific Slimerrific. SHE LOVES MAKING HER OWN MONEY and is set on continuing to sell slime.

It isn’t until she sacrifices some of her personal funds and changes her habits that she can recover. She doesn’t check her budget and expense list, doesn’t save her money, and spends the money she earned carelessly! She will always save her money from now on.
