One way of setting your kids on the pathway to entrepreneurship is to inspire them to make money. Richard Branson reared parakeets and marketed them as companions when he was eleven years old; Warren Buffett peddled packs of gum at a young age of six. Mark Cuban absorbed distinctions of business hawking trash bags when he was just twelve. There are several things that kids can do without putting themselves at risk, such as tutoring smaller children and encouraging neighbors to use them for mundane tasks like walking the dog or watering the garden. Beginning a mini-business will help them become multi-taskers and encourage them to think on their feet as they manage their business.
