Encouraging Entrepreneurship in Children

by Molly Christensen | LDS Homeschool Conference 2014

Entrepreneurship seems risky! Why would you want to encourage that?? Entrepreneurship is not just for a select few and it’s not simply an alternative to a job, it’s a mindset we can all benefit from. Children are naturals at this and the skills they can gain from entrepreneurship will serve them no matter what they end up doing as adults. They will learn the skills of work, self-confidence, continual learning, problem-solving, faith, abundance, people skills and more. And yes, they might even earn some money while they’re at it and pay for their own church mission. This is real-life learning at its best. Come find out why entrepreneurship needs to be a part of your homeschool and how to set up the atmosphere to encourage it.
