Raising Kids to Be Entrepreneurs

About a year ago, I came across the TED videos and I watch the ones that interest me personally.

This TEDx video in particular by Cameron Herold was very interesting to me since it involves kids, education, and entrepreneurship.

Here are some bullet points from the video that I wanted to remember and will try to apply as my kids grow up:

Entrepreneurial Traits to Nurture:

  • attainment
  • boot strapping
  • customer service
  • handling failure
  • introspection
  • leadership
  • networking
  • sales
  • tenacity

Entrepreneurial Skills to Teach:

  • how to sell
  • how to save money
  • problem solving
  • public speaking
  • to ask for help
  • to ask questions
  • to be creative
  • to lead others
  • to learn from mistakes
  • to never give up
  • to see solutions
  • to want to make money

Thanks Cameron for a great video.

Oh, by the way a TED event will be coming to Albuquerque, NM on September 18, 2010.  You can find out more here TEDxABQ, I’ll be there.
