I’m proud to say, my kids challenge me. They know way more stuff than me. I was just looking over my daughter’s shoulder while she scheduled some tweets for clients and the quotes that she gathered is mind-boggling!
Did you know that she owns her own business and she is celebrating her first year in business at the end of this month? We are rewriting her first eBook and launching it in Amazon in a few weeks. It didn’t happen suddenly. We had a business mentor working with her for a whole day and she has not stopped learning since that day a year ago with Sandi Krakowski.
Let me say, it’s fun but it’s not easy to be a young business owner. Ask her!
My son always has these ‘weird’ questions. Today, he asked, “Do you think there are more people living in apartments than houses?”
“Dude, please google it!” “I don’t know and I don’t want to know.” But he wanted to know. He must be up to something good.
The next thing he asked was “how can I generate some income?” We answered, “start a blog!” in unison (my daughter and I). So he started blogging. Check him out. He is getting ready to launch his own blog in two months and possibly making $40 a month from blogging. That’s a start for a 14 year old. At the meantime, we are running a test on his perseverance through uncommongeneration.com.
The truth is, don’t underestimate our kids’ potential, vulnerability and pioneering spirit.
