In April, 2010, I decided to start interviewing other biz kids. I have been interviewed dozens and dozens of times in different media and wanted to give other young entrepreneurs the opportunity to promote their business.
When I was interviewed, one of the questions I didn’t like answering was relating to my financial situation. While it’s great to start earning money at a young age, being a biz kid is more than just about how much we make. We have the opportunity to learn about business and life in so many practical ways that schools just don’t teach us. And for me, it’s more important about what I do with my money, like saving for college and donating to Rady Children’s Hospital, than how much I make.
So in my BizKid 2 BizKid interviews, I don’t ask about the person’s financial situation. In fact, some of the entrepreneurs aren’t making money with it at all . . . that is yet. And that’s okay. Everyone needs to start somewhere. It’s what you do, not how much you do that matters.
I hope my readers give these biz kids the support and encouragement that people have given me since I started my business five years ago.
Enjoy reading. There are lots of amazing, positive kids out there.
