In our difficult economy, more and more teenagers seeking employment are unable to find a job. If we want our children to become financially self-sufficient, perhaps starting and growing their own business is our best bet. On this week’s show, I speak with author and teen counselor, Julia Neiman. After years of working with foster youth, Julia realized the best way to empower her clients and help them achieve independence was to give them the tools and skills to become young entrepreneurs. She talks with me about why this is so important even if your child ends up working for someone else, and how we can help our kids discover their passion and become risk-taking self-starters.

After you’ve listened to the show, I would love to hear your thoughts. Does your child have a special talent or interest that he or she can develop into a business? Do you think that entrepreneurial skills are important for all kids today? Drop me a note at PlaydatePlanet@gmail.com.
