Listen to the interview with my son, Matthew, and his perspective on being homeschooled and how he successfully pursued  his entrepreneurial goals

How do you homeschool your entrepreneurial child? If you have more than one child you know that they are each unique. Even though they may  have the same parents, and are raised in the same home they can be so very different. And if you have more than one child with entrepreneurial characteristics, they could eventually become owners and founders of vastly different businesses.
If you have a child that dreams big and has big ideas, you might be raising an entrepreneur.

27 million or 51% percent of Americans are starting or running a business. Your child may already be in that percentage.

Are you aware that “recent research clearly indicates that in some cases, environment triggers genetic tendencies, certain situations trigger genes that would otherwise lie dormant”? James V. Koch

It is very important to know your child, see their strengths and help them develop those strengths. How Am I Smart?, or the updated version, 8 Great Smarts by Kathy Koch was so helpful to me in learning how to find these strengths in my children.

According to multiple studies, there may be an "entrepreneur gene"--or possibly people with certain genetic characteristics and personality traits that are more likely to be successful entrepreneurs than others. They have been “hard-wired” that way.

As your child grows, learns, and develops you may spot many of the characteristics that entrepreneurs have in common. Learn the traits to look for in your entrepreneurial child.

I have written a guest post over at My Joy-Filled Life, Are You Raising an Entrepreneur. Find out what we did in our home to encourage our entrepreneurial son who now is a very successful owner of several software companies.

 

One of the many perks to homeschooling is the extra time that your children have available to pursue their passions. Helping them find their giftings and equipping them to be successful in using their skill sets is a blessing that we as parents have been given. Learn how to spot an entrepreneurial mindset in your child and help him refine these skills so he can soar into adulthood with the tools needed to be his own boss.

What interested your entrepreneurial child most right now? How are you helping develop his or her skills? I'd love to find out. Comment below.
