Raising entrepreneurs…

29 Mar

Check out this TED talk by Cameron Herold. He is a successful entrepreneur, and has some interesting ideas about preparing our children for the future. For example – instead of giving his kids a weekly allowance, which he feels prepares them for a weekly salary – aka – a job that entails working for someone else – he lets his kids go around the house to find jobs that need doing, and then he lets them negotiate a rate for their work. Half of the money that they make gets put into savings. At the end of each month they go together to the bank and to talk with their broker. Yes, his kids have brokers.

Interesting food for thought. http://www.ted.com/talks/cameron_herold_let_s_raise_kids_to_be_entrepreneurs.html
