Course Description

This course is about encouraging your kids to make and save money.  I define a kid entrepreneur as a young person who makes money, can save the money, and handle all the responsibilities of school, family, and friends.  There is a very strong possibility that someday your child will become an entrepreneur.  Schools are not teaching entrepreneurship, because they don't know how. But, I do. I produced 10 lessons that will guide you to becoming an entrepreneur coach.  Each whiteboard lesson is between 7 and 15 minutes.  Notes are included with each lesson.  Most of the lessons have homework, which are activities for you and your child to do together.   Making and saving money builds self-esteem and confidence.
