Can your child really have a successful first business? Is it possible for him to learn and have fun while he makes money? One mom offers a creative way to do it—today on Home School Heartbeat, with host Mike Farris.
Linda Raasch has joined me this week to discuss teaching children entrepreneurship. Now Linda, you and your husband, Ken, have created an online business that allows children to safely learn the fundamentals of business—and have fun, maybe make some money, too! Tell us about that.
Thanks, Mike. Our new website, Bizkidz.com—b-i-z-k-i-d-z.com—is a passion of ours to help families help their kids to light that spark of ambition. Bizkidz.com allows a child to create their own online store, add merchandize from hundreds of name-band retailers, and market the store to their safe circle of friends and family. Office supplies, travel, flowers, electronics are all common purchases made regularly by your friends, family, and friends of friends. Why not tap into that existing market and have them purchase from well-known retailers through a child’s store? There’s no extra markup on the products, and your child earns a commission. Bizkidz.com aims to launch the careers of future CEOs and business owners all over America.
Linda, I know that a lot of families are going to be interested in having their kids visit your website. Spell it for me one more time.
Thanks so much! I’m Mike Farris.
