Hello, everyone! Let's start our #thread on #child #entrepreneurs, both in #Malaysia and abroad.

We'll talk about the success stories as well as how to foster their development 😊 Let's go! Feel free to add on to the thread with your own opinion and sharing.
Latest in Malaysia is the story of Ferris. Ferris merupakan usahawan cilik yang terpengaruh secara positif dengan siri Upin dan Ipin! It's good to see how entrepreneurship in an animated series can piqued children and their interest in entrepreneurship!

If you ask if there are more of such stories in #Malaysia, there are!

11 y.o Elisa Ahmad Sayuti and her friends got inspired by both their participation in Kelab Usahawan Cilik as well as seeing their parents who are also #entrepreneurs!

Ada juga pelajar OKU yang berwawasan besar ingin menjadi usahawan penternakan ayam!

Mohd Nurrahman Mansor, umur 13, mempelajari cara meneramkan telur ayam kampung dari @YouTube! Kanak-kanak era 21 makin bijak dan berwawasan jauh.

Outside of Malaysia, there are 15 year olds (!!!) such as Robert Nay becoming CEOs of gaming companies.

Bubble Ball, was the result of 4,000 lines of code he wrote with only a Macbook and software license. The game beat ''Angry Birds'' out of the number 1 on the Apple app store!
When he was 5, Sebastian Martinez started a #specialty socks #company named Are You Kidding.

His company has been able to already reach $15,000 in sales and is projected to double and hopefully triple their sales in the next few years.
Are these #children #entrepreneurs special cases or are they result of #parenting and entrepreneurial upbringing?

While some may develop early aptitude for #entrepreneurship, it is something parents can nurture in their children too! Some learn by watching their parents 😌
What are some of the Dos and Donts in raising #child #entrepreneurs?

1. DO encourage them!
2. DO teach them about the value of #money!
3. DO provide them with tools of the #trade ⚒️
4. DO take them to #business events or your own business operations!
As for the Don'ts:

1. DON'T let #money be the focus.
2. DON'T discourage far-fetched ideas. Children are afterall creative 😉
3. DON'T say No! immediately. Help nurture the #entrepreneurship spirit within them!
