We believe that one of the greatest lessons you can teach a child is how to run their own business. But what can they do to earn a little pocket money? In this first-of-its-kind presentation, we’re going to share our top 10 picks for a business that a child could run with minimal help from his or her parents (and none of them are a lemonade stand). We’ll also be talking to parents about things they can do to build up and continually stoke an entrepreneurial fire in their child. Kids are absolutely welcome and encouraged to attend. Parents or guardians are required to attend with them.
