This mindset is one which is solution orientated, always looking to solve problems and add value, coupled with a positive, can-do attitude and you have a very potent mix whether or not your kid is an intrapreneur (who works in a company), or an entrepreneur and owns their own business.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”so how to teach our kids?” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]The solution is really very simple, whilst at the same time being quite difficult for the modern parent because it goes against our natural inclination to provide for our kids. Essentially, you have to do the opposite of this, to deny your child that which they want and if they really want it, they will find a way to get it. Herold was forced by ‘s parents were entrepreneurs and as a child when he asked for something himself

Herold was not allowed to get a job as a kid, which meant that if he wanted something, he had to work out a way to get it. This forced him to develop his entrepreneurial spirit from an early age, with necessity being the mother of invention.

We strongly recommend watching the video, and the next time that your child asks you for something, say “sure you can have it, if you can work out a way to get it”.

That’s not to say that you can’t guide your child, or provide some resource, but the less you help the better the outcome- for them (and your bank balance).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”the daily lifehack summary” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466446648730{border-top-width: 3px !important;border-right-width: 3px !important;border-bottom-width: 3px !important;border-left-width: 3px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;background-color: #ce879f !important;border-left-color: #58646d !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #58646d !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #58646d !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #58646d !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;}”]

Teach your kids to be entrepreneurs

Step 1: Next time they ask for something,tell them they have to work out a way that they can get it themselves.
Step 2:Resist the urge to help, buy them less things, let them develop this mindset on their own.
