Encouraging Your Kids To Become Entrepreneurs

The majority of successful entrepreneurs often credit the way they were raised with their success.  In some cases it may be because they were raised by parents with a strong work ethic, in others it may be that they were encouraged by their parents to follow their dreams.  If you are one of the many successful entrepreneurs who were raised in this manner, and have gone on to experience a great deal of success, you may want to pass that trait onto your children.  If you would like your children to become entrepreneurs, there are some steps you can take to help them develop their own love of business.

To help your children develop a love for business and become interested in entrepreneurship, you need to invite them into your business life.  Allow them to see first-hand what it takes to run a business and everything that is involved.  You may even want to give them a special job that will help them understand what is involved in running a successful business.  Simply by allowing your children to enter into your business life, you will help them develop their natural interests and answer some of the questions they may have.

If your child shows signs of being interested in business, you should nurture those interests.  No matter how small their business goals may be at the time, showing them that you support their endeavors will help them become more confident in their business aspirations.  It is important that you allow your children the opportunity to discover what success is and find out how rewarding running their own business can be.  The best way to encourage your children that entrepreneurship may be the right path for them is to support their interests. 

Every successful entrepreneur understands that the first step in creating a successful business is to feed their curiosity.  How are certain things made, what goes into the manufacturing process, how will it be marketed, who can benefit from it.  These are all questions that often ignite the curiosity of an entrepreneur and are naturally found in children.  Feed your child’s natural curiosity and allow them to discover the answer to these questions for themselves.  In many cases, children often have ideas on how games or toys can be made better, allow them to play with these ideas and you may be surprised at the outcome.


As entrepreneurs we are all too familiar with failure, but our children may not be.  It is important that you pass on your knowledge and explain to them that failure is all part of the game.  Your children should understand that failure is not a devastating experience; it can actually help you grown and design a product or business that will be more successful next time.  If your child understands that there is always another opportunity available, they will not lose hope when they are faced with failure.
