Whenever you hear “Entrepreneurial Child”, what is the first thing that comes into your mind? Is it a child wearing an expensive suit sitting in an expensive office and shaking hands with other entrepreneurial kids after meeting? It probably did not have the image of an entrepreneurial child. Then what are the early signs of a kid that shows he/she must be an entrepreneur in the future? Here I specially address parents, if you have a point of view about something and he is mentally stable enough to make a decision – apparently should be happy about it.
The attitude of Parents towards entrepreneurial kids
Normally, parents think that their child is rebellious, in fact, you should be happy that your child has leadership skills and decision-making ability. Some grown-ups never appreciate a change. They become afraid of taking risks, non-traditional lifestyles, changing trends, and most often fear of failure. Always remember none of the fear is good for business. The fearful person does not have the confidence to step on a different, non-traditional business platform. They never are entrepreneurs.
Want to raise entrepreneurial kids?
If an audacious child is raised to be an entrepreneur, he is able to live an independent life according to his own choices and agendas. He would be optimistic and would be able to make its own decisions. Instead of directionless people, he has the courage to stand up and step into a challenging business. These fearless people when raising their own children, their skills actively pass to the next generation.
What are the distinctive features of entrepreneurs?
An entrepreneurial person is the one who has confidence and courage to survive on its own conditions. Their attitude towards problems is positive, creative, resilient, and unapologetic. Their verdict rally kinfolk and choices leave everlasting footsteps for newcomers. They always believe in themselves and their hard work. Whenever entangled in some difficulty, they always seek unorthodox solutions. The most audacious characteristic of an entrepreneurial person is – he always takes responsibility for his decision, choices, and failures. Rather than a robotic employee who is unaffected for any collateral damage, he always took the pressure of disaster.
If a person is raised with this attitude, it becomes his habit that supports him to command his own future road map. An entrepreneurial is always impending towards countless opportunities, possibilities, contentment and success.
Gathering a lot of stories from entrepreneurial childhood, here present some of the tips to raise an entrepreneurial child:
Let them figure it out what they actually want
Modern conditions and opportunities show that academic success and career success are two very different and irrelevant things. If a child is not good at academics, lacks his interest in school or college degree it has nothing to do with his business experience. Rather than blaming him for low academics, try to find out his interests. Make him figure out the things he is good at. Appreciate his well being, support him morally, and offer him with your utmost conviction. It is evident that college dropouts created history by challenging traditional business models.
Develop the skills
Appreciate your child to practice developing entrepreneurial skills. These skills involve making decisions, emotional intelligence, negotiation, leadership creative thinking, and customer services. Put your child in a fun challenge that nurtures his skills to deal with challenges in the future. You will see how these skills increase his unconscious competence. Encourage him with healthy debates, practicing activities, problem-solving ideas and decision-making situations.
Grab the opportunities
Great entrepreneurs continually seek new ideas, services, and opportunities. Being open to opportunities means seeing with the conviction of possibilities and probabilities. An entrepreneur believes that opportunities are everywhere, they just have to be found like a treasure hunt.
Read about/Meet role models
A parent is an institute for a child. Motivate your child that everything is possible in this world. Tell them stories of successful entrepreneurs, arouses their interest in reading newspapers and success stories of people. Tell them “one day you set a great example” or “One day newcomers read your success story” as these words fascinate them. These words also appeased them, they start believing in their abilities as their parents appreciate those abilities.
