Raising Entreps

Posted on: April 7, 2011

I recently had as a guest on my show the author of this book:

Joy Abaquin is the administrator at the Multiple Intelligence International School here as well as a multi-awarded educator. Her book “8 Simple Secrets To Raising Entrepreneurs” is a tie up with Joey Concepcion‘s Go Negosyo initiative.

The book has a fun, non intimidating lay-out, so much so Joy says her high school students have read the book too.
I’m half way through 8 Simple Secrets. It’s an easy read and contains a lot of information that most parents already know. But it gives good suggestions on how to encourage your child’s “intelligences” – and before that, how to recognize them. There are also mini-sections on entrepreneur role models who made it.

But the book isn’t only about teaching kids how to start their own business. It talks about teaching kids to be money smart, how to persevere in the face of challenges, how to solve problems. The point is, whether or not your kids will become business owners, they need to have the ever adaptable entrepreneur’s mind set to navigate their way through their fast-changing world. This is a book the generation of our children is lucky to have.

Looks like a good read and I’m sure the lessons apply not just to children. Is this available online?

yes – the lessons are for everyone! don’t think it’s online.
