Does your child have entrepreneurial skills? Here are four ways to teach your kids to become entrepreneurs.
While some kids have to be groomed, some kids are born with a natural entrepreneurial spirit. Most often, we have seen that some kids perform better at fairs and fates because of their creative bent of mind. By the time they hit nine or ten, they can be seen selling sports cards, pencils, candy, and gum to their classmates during recess.
By the time they hit their teens, they can be seen making the most of social media by monetizing reels for money. If you have ever seen the spark in your child's eyes, then you must nourish their skills and make them ready for the future. Join our FREE-TO-ALL Webinar ‘Art of Parenting & Success Mantras for Kids’ by Dr Vivek Bindra—India's best motivational speaker. The webinar will be conducted on July 10th, 2022.
Here are four ways to encourage your children to become entrepreneurs:
1. Assist them in identifying opportunities
Entrepreneurs have an eye for details. They do not miss an opportunity and always find ways to approach a challenge with a creative solution. In cases where there is a problem that is not acknowledged, entrepreneurs spot them and find a way to resolve them. In cases where the problem and its solution already exist, entrepreneurs find distinct ways to make the solution better.
With your smart parenting skills, you can teach your kids how to recognize opportunities that lead to entrepreneurs creating a product or a service.
2. Teach Them Real-World Applications
The only constant thing is change. And a lot of times, people find changes to their distaste. Of course! Now, no one likes to compromise with their comfort zone. However, life is all about making things better. So, if your children express their dissatisfaction with something, encourage them to think of better ways. Start simply. If they come up with ideas that already exist, appreciate them, nonetheless. Just like you use your parenting strategy in business, teaching your children to spot opportunities and act on them will contribute greatly to the probability of their future success.
3. Let them solve problems.
To protect them, most parents often hold their children back. They often do not allow their children to think and make decisions. Instead, they take charge of making decisions, rushing to fix any problems their children may encounter and protect them from harm. But entrepreneurs often have to make decisions that are sometimes very difficult. So, children who are not used to making their own decisions might feel lost. Hence, let your kids face adversity so that they can make decisions independently.
4. Develop Patience, Acceptance & Resilience
Life is not a bed of roses. Instead, it is like a roller coaster where you will experience ups and downs. Because no one has ever learned to walk without falling, one should know that kids are eventually going to fall. What's important is that they should know how to get back on their feet.
You must teach your children that failure and disappointment are parts of life. Every successful entrepreneur gets knocked down at least a dozen times in their life. They taste delightful success only by turning losses into victories. No matter if you are an adult or a child, entrepreneurship entails resilience.
Though there is much debate on whether entrepreneurial traits are the result of nature or nurture, research does show that encouraging cognitive thinking in kids will help them cultivate entrepreneurship.
