I was raised to be an entrepreneur
We miss opportunities to find these kids with entrepreneurial traits
As kids we have passions (these are crushed early)
No-one says "Become an entrepreneur"
Teach kids to open a business instead of accepting government handouts
We teach out kids to go after really good jobs
Media says go for fame (become a model, singer, celebrity)
MBA programs do not teach kids to be entrepreneurs
Bipolar disorder is nicknamed the CEO disease
Entrepreneurs cheat! We don't do accounting, we hire accounting.
An entrepreneurs definition: "A person who organizes operates and assumes the risk for a business venture"
Hate the thought of having a job and love the thought of employing people.
Become an entrepreneur at a young age.
Buy low, sell hi. Don't sell to the poor people, sell to the rich kids.
Don't reveal your source
Manual labor sucks but recurring revenue is great
Make more money faster (10 dollars for 1 hour is better than 10 dollars for 5 hours)
Why not give your kids games to teach entrepreneur ship
Ensure that your kids never waste a penny
Allowances teach the wrong habbits, entrepreneurs will never get a regular paycheck
Always negotiate with your kids
50% of money goes into a bank account (house account), 50% of money goes to whatever they want (toy account)
Get your kids a broker
Don't always read stories to your kids, have them read stories to you (Get them to talk)
Show kids what a bad employee is like and what a good employee is like (Point out bad / good customer service)
Do not medicate your kids for ADD unless it is impossible to live with!
Teach your kids:
To ask questions
To be creative
To lead others
To learn from mistakes
How to save money
To want to make Money
How to sell
To ask for help
To never give up
To see solutions
Rank entrepreneurship right up with Law and Medicine!
Very inspiring stuff, When I do have kids I'll be instilling these values at a very early age. Love the idea of negotiating with my kid, everything is negotiable - it's something they should learn at a very early age.
