Are Entrepreneurs Made or Born?
What makes an entrepreneur?
Is it something from their childhood, a life changing experience or simply their personality that sets them up for success?
Our upcoming panel will attempt to answer these questions and discuss what parents can do to help their children build an entrepreneurial mindset.
This well-rounded panel of experts are here to engage with you and dive into queries that have been left unanswered in your mind.
How to encourage your child(ren) without killing their dreams, set up learning opportunities, and guide them through hiccups comes with knowing how to facilitate your child's experience.
Raising an entrepreneur is not only a lesson in patience, but trust. Trusting your child(ren) to forge their own path.
You won't have to worry about your child being prepared for the unknown future if they develop a creative, entrepreneurial mindset. They will have natural insights that many other children were never able to develop. And by helping them develop this, you'll know they have the tools to face many challenges that arise in their lives.
This panel was brought together to provide a well-rounded perspective into the journey of entrepreneurship, parenting, and encouraging self-directed learners.
