Is your child a budding entrepreneur or kidpreneur?

While other kids are outside playing or obsessing over trending fads, yours is more interested in thinking up side hustle ideas…

And you’ve heard all of these bad and, sometimes maybe good, ideas and never ending questions.

Mum, can we do a car wash out the front of the house?

Mum, can I have money to buy lollies to sell at school?

Mum, why do you go to work?

Mum, how do you make money?

In your mind, it always ends with this hilarious conclusion…

My child is either going to be rich or end up in jail!

So how do you continue encouraging curiosity while putting them in positions to either fall or succeed?

Top 5 Kidpreneur Tips

Tip #1. KISS.

Teach them simple financial literacy, in everything you do, always buy low, sell high.

Tip #2. Never stop encouraging or taking an interest in their curiosity or passions.

Kids are impressionable so it’s easy to crush hopes and dreams that can have repercussions into adulthood. Instead, carefully explain why something might or might not work so they can go back to the drawing board.

Tip #3. Think of, ideally also make, a product to sell.

Most entrepreneurs start by making a product they can sell.

Tip #4. Be supportive but also do the work with them.

Doing the work with them is so important because they won’t feel as intimidated.

Work can be anything from finding and researching inspiring kidpreneurs on YouTube, through to, simply helping with admin and logistics within the little microbusiness.

Tip #5. Share your suggestion in the comments!

Love to hear your thoughts!

So... what will or won’t sell?
Soaps and bath bombs are a great idea.
