Let’s Raise Kids to be Entrepreneurs

We just finished an election cycle chock full of promises by candidates to be job creators.  Instead of depending on others to create the jobs of tomorrow, why don’t we go a more grassroots approach.  The jobs of tomorrow come from the sweat of small businesses today, and so on.  It is time we stopped pushing our children into the employee model and cultivate that things in them that will create the next Amazon.com, the next University of Phoenix, the next Priceline, and the next Zappos.  Don’t let the system make your child the commodity, encourage your child to be the trader.

About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!

  1. I definitely think there is a lot of potential in learning how to build and care for our own businesses regardless of politics. As a entrepreneur and business owner myself, I created a job when I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Work ethic and a passion for what you do will continue to drive this country in the right direction.
