I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Sarah Cook, CEO of Raising CEO Kids. She has created a fantastic resource for parents and children who want to pursue an entrepreneurial path. The website contains all types of resources required to begin and run a company and is connected to a network of over 20,000 experts and users worldwide.
During the interview we talked about the importance of the “entrepreneurial experience” for children growing up in this fast-paced society. The rapidly changing world makes it more important than ever for our children to learn creative thinking and problem solving.
Here are a few other learning experiences and benefits young entrepreneurs gain:
*the opportunity to create new ideas
*how to make an income doing something they are passionate about
*money management skills including profit and loss, budgeting and philanthropy
*how to speak in public and develop their communication skills
*how to manage their time effectively
*how to set effective goals and determine the steps necessary to reach those goals
“Entrepreneurs have to be creative, it’s part of the process. It not only helps them grow their business, it helps them overcome obstacles.”
Hear some of the incredible “Kidpreneur” stories from Sarah’s new book coming out this September.
