Can a Child be an Entrepreneur?
If you have taken a stroll in your neighborhood or community, you may have observed two types of kids. One type is the kids/teens who are playing with their friends, in their gardens, doing sports, and other typical activities you would expect from children.
The other type of kid/teen is outside of his/her home with a table or booth selling something. Sometimes it’s lemonade, sometimes it’s candy, sometimes it’s something they have made, etc.. And you think to yourself, this kid is not like the other kids in the neighborhood. S/he is always selling something to the neighborhood. Well, of course, s/he is different than others. And before you ask why? The answer is simple.
This kid is an ENTREPRENEUR!
Yes, this might come as a surprise to most people, but kids can also have the entrepreneurial drive from an early age. Age doesn’t make an entrepreneur. Instead, someone with great ideas and a drive to turn it into a business makes them an entrepreneur. And with the right financial support through a fundraising or crowdfunding campaign, these kids can turn their idea into a full-fledged business.
How do kids get their entrepreneurial drive?
Entrepreneurial-minded kids have inner motivation to do something great and it doesn’t matter to them what age they are. They may be motivated to help people, animals or the planet in some way. They may want to use their creative gifts or innovations to create some sort of business. Entrepreneurial kids are usually: strong willed; independent thinkers; big thinkers; innovators; inventors; artists; motivated and/or business minded. They may have observed successful entrepreneurs around them or on social media which sparks their own creativity. Kid are sponges. The observe everything around them. The world to which they are exposed will help shape their future. When they are introduced to innovative, creative, entrepreneurial mindsets, it can activate the drive within them to do something larger than themselves using their inner gifts and this sets them apart from other kids.
How are entrepreneurial kids different than other kids?
You might have seen that most kids are navigating their life by learning and identifying ways to fit in this big world.
Entrepreneurial kids have a completely different outlook towards life and this world. They are hyper-focused on their inner drive, motivation and projects and are driven to see where their project can take them. They seek out ways fund their ideas with kid fundraisers so that can they can invest that raised money in driving the idea further.
Will it be a success or a failure? If it’s a success, a kid entrepreneur will think about how much they can earn and how much more can they push in the direction of success at their mission. If it’s a failure, that doesn’t deter a kid entrepreneur from working on their new ideas. This instead ignites a fire in them to come up with new ideas that can turn into a successful tomorrow.
Passion and drive to turn their vision and ideas into a proper business plan is what makes kid entrepreneurs different from other kids.
