TEDx Talk: Raising Kids to Be Entrepreneurs

  1. I’d be on board if making wads of cash from gullible people wasn’t always the motivating factor. The video at the end applauds entrepreneurship for making the world a better place, which I think is a good lesson to learn. But taking advantage of your granny’s bridge club because they think your cute is not what I’d like my kids learning.

    I hate to say it, but I’m glad this guy isn’t my dad. Or my neighbor.

  2. oops, “you’re cute” – sorry dad (my dad preached grammar, not entrepreneurship, to less success, I’m afraid).

  3. You should check out Ken Robinson’s talk on Ted. Really great.

  4. Wow – Thanks for posting.

    And Ribbu – my point perhaps re: Grandmothers bridge club only showed one side. if they didn’t get value – they’d have quickly stopped buying. One of the women re-told me about it every summer for about 20 years after.

    Entrepreneurs start companies – and our clients let us know if the value is worthwhile. Basic Supply & Demand. The jobs created, and taxes generated for the economy.

    Thanks for the feedback though.

  5. Cameron – point taken. I suppose that since money does make the world go ’round, it’s good someone is keeping it spinning.
