When she was just 11 years old, Jasmine Lawrence got upset when she put relaxer on her hair and almost all of it broke off. So she concocted some natural hair oil and tested it. By the time she was 13, she was selling her stuff to her delighted friends. When she was 15, Oprah interviewed her. And her business took off. The experience was good for her; now she’s in college, with a good solid company supporting her.
How can we homeschoolers encourage our kids to consider entrepreneurship?
Starting small and early would be a good idea. Perhaps your child would be interested in making baked goods, chocolate, or jewelry to sell at craft fairs, yard sales, or kids’ soccer practices. Or creating computer images for peers, such as avatars. Starting small is how Jasmine did it.
