WSJ: Teaching Children How to Be Entrepreneurs (with Podcast)


This is fascinating stuff. From the minds of children.... Be sure to listen to the podcast at WSJ Radio.

"Jensen Bergman spent weeks preparing to pitch his team's business idea to investors. Minutes before the meeting, he was playing ping-pong outside the board room to stay calm. Jensen is 9 years old."

"One recent evening, Isabel—a big fan of the Disney film "The Princess and the Frog," which is set in Louisiana—proposed opening a business to sell New Orleans-style beignets."

I like the idea but they discuss 5yr olds in the article. Getting my nephew at 5 to even comprehend a business would be a challenge. Maybe they just overstated that part in the article.

Are there classes on teaching your kids how to marry rich? Asking for a friend.

That's a subjective presumption. I have a 5 year old nephew who would probably come up with some good stuff.
