4 Keys To Create Entrepreneurial Kids
Michelle Brown | Sep 20, 2023
That’s a great question. Entrepreneurial thinking is the ability to see opportunities, take risks, and create value in various contexts. It can help your child develop important skills such as creativity, problem-solving, and resilience. Here are some ways you can ignite your child’s entrepreneurial thinking:
- Reward thinking outside the box. Generally, our school system teaches us to do things the way it has always been done. Encourage your child to find unique solutions to real world problems. If there isn’t a clear solution, help them create one.
- Develop the skills. Developing entrepreneurial skills involves practising elements of work that entrepreneurs use all the time. These include pitching, negotiating, making decisions, leadership, customer service and creative thinking. Raising entrepreneurial kids means finding everyday ways to incorporate fun challenges that nurture these skills2.
- See opportunities. Being introduced to entrepreneurial opportunities involves playing and experimenting with business ideas within a secure and risk-free environment. Letting them experience and interact with real-life entrepreneurial scenarios that open their eyes to the possibilities2.
- Meet mentors and role models. One of the best ways to inspire entrepreneurial thinking is to expose your child to successful entrepreneurs who can share their stories, insights, and advice. You can also encourage your child to join clubs, programs, or competitions that foster entrepreneurship and innovation.
