Don't Kid Yourself: Kids Can Be Taught to Become Entrepreneurs!

Yes, entrepreneurship can be taught! Let me show you how.

 Did you know that the U.S. Department of Labor estimates that today’s high school student will have 10 to 14 jobs by age 38? We must teach everyone, especially youth, to adapt, problem-solve, and embrace change! Our goal is to encourage all people to use their God-given talent and start a business in quest of solving problems worth solving!

I am the founder and Executive Director of http://sageglobal.org, an entrepreneurship program that offers curriculum, mentoring, and competition to teenagers around the world. I am also an entrepreneurship professor who specializes in helping teens start real businesses.

We will be offering an Entrepreneurship Teacher Training Workshop at California State University, Chico on January 18-19, 2019. The training course is designed for any teacher (e.g., CTE, DECA, FBLA) who wants to teach students how to identify and solve problems For details, go to http://sagetris.com. The registration fee is $350. Please feel free to circulate this note, via email or listserv, to other business and CTE teachers.

For details, see http://sagetris.com Or email cdeberg@csuchico.edu

P.S. Buckminster Fuller once said, "If I ran a school, I'd give the average grade to the ones who gave me all the right answers, for being good parrots. I'd give the top grades to those who made a lot of mistakes and told me about them, and then told me what they learned from them." Do you agree?
