We have a young entrepreneur with us today who just happens to be my own 8-year old son! His name is Keoni, and in this video I teach him and other future young entrepreneurs 5 things to STOP doing in order to start and grow a business.
A little bit of background: I’m fortunate that through example, Keoni is interested in entrepreneurship. We throw around ideas all of the time, and I’ve actually captured many of those moments in an upcoming podcast that will be coming soon that he and I co-host together.
The school he attends is also a huge advocate for creating young entrepreneurs. A year long assignment in his 2nd grade class involves creating a startup company (think Etsy type physical products), pitching ideas in front of judges, prototyping, marketing, branding, manufacturing, and working with others. This culminates at the end of the year when the top businesses in the school sell their products at a fair where parents and other community members can come to buy these items. How cool is that!?
As a result, Keoni’s become super pumped about starting a business. He also, on his own, started a fundraiser raising hundreds of dollars to help the people of Port Aransas, TX after the hurricane that devastated their town last year.
It’s my life-long mission to help young kids get inspired to learn the principles of entrepreneurship. Whether they become an entrepreneur or not, they’ll at least have the skillset to stand out, success, problem-solve, present and get over fears that often hold people back from living the life they want to live.
I’ve got big plans to make this happen, but for now, enjoy watching this conversation between my son and me.
If you’re interested in checking out the few videos he’s got on his YouTube channel (I’m beginning to get him to learn how to create and edit and upload videos on his own), check it out below:
Cheers, thanks so much for your support, and please share this with someone who you know has a future young entrepreneur close to them!
