Teach Them This: Student-Preneur (video)

A subject that’s not often taught in homeschool is the subject of *Entrepreneurship.*

To its credit……IT SHOULD!

We tell our children that they can be anything that they want to be.

Well tell our children that they can do anything they want to do.

However, in that equation there usually isn’t any thought process to spurring them onward to business ownership.

We often steer them in the direction of college. Debt. Hopes of finding a job utilizing the studies they gained in college.

Or….with the understanding that college is a necessary need before business ownership.

Sure, it could. But must it be?

Entering into college and securing a job in which studies were completed is not occurring at a successful rate as once hoped.

The amount of students trekking to college with high hopes of coming out on top.

No debt. Dream job. Successful pay. Is slowing down in it’s pace. Do the research and you will find this to be the case. (I’ll save the details of this for another post.)

However, Entrepreneurship is an opportunity that any of our homeschooled students can grow into.

Dream it. Plan it. Pray over it. Study it. Make it happen!

Why not begin to plant those seeds of business ownership at a young age?

Surround them with great resources to read.

Amazing mentors to listen to.

Connect them with success business owners within the community.

Make it a part of their studies since it is their future.
