Here’s a radical suggestion: Why not challenge your young charge to take on the first three trials of an entrepreneurial “hero’s journey” to:
1 Make something with his or her own hands;
2 Sell it (safely) to a stranger; and
3 Experience the freedom (and responsibility) of having a little extra spending money as a reward.
Sound too simple? Just give it a try. You’ll be surprised at how each of these “magic seeds” will provide lessons, con dence and inspiration for years to come.
