I love this story from the UK about a young man who doesn’t make much money but figured out a way to provide affordable shelter for himself. He didn’t wait for a handout in a challenging situation but instead did something about his problem. American children need to think like this young man did.
Don’t miss this terrific article about how one dad is teaching his children to learn to work. A great read!
Charles Hugh Smith takes a jobs report from this summer and dissects it. Note in particular the chart that shows the three (of nine) job sectors that have actually expanded since 2000. Just as I explained in Thriving 🙂
Lately, great entrepreneurship stories just keep popping up (there’ll be another one next post). But for today, what a way to educate your teens and young adult children without racking up student loan debt! Here’s a great article that also includes an interesting video interview of a man who teaches people how to grow food in cities. The young people who come to work with him are getting an invaluable education in a growth area: organic gardening. Learn more HERE.
Entrepreneurship continues to thrive, even in a lousy economy: this young man, despite several twists and turns in the road (along with a few discarded careers), stuck with his dream of creating a business by selling fantastic cookies made with his grandmother’s recipe, and now he’s finding success. Inspiring story! Share it with the young people in your life to give them a vision of entrepreneurial challenges and success.
