We see kids aspiring to be astronauts, sportsmen, scientists, doctors and what not.
But it’s very difficult to find kids that aspire to be an entrepreneur. And honestly most of them are not even aware of this. The concept of entrepreneurship is not much talked about despite the importance it has be it in schools or at home. Kids aren’t instilled with the knowledge of entrepreneurship from the beginning and that is one major reason for kids not having an entrepreneurial spirit.
Online resources can be a good way to get kids started and teaching them some of the essential skills that entrepreneurs possess to get them familiar with this art.
