It seems adults are always asking kids what they want to be when they grow up. The reason your parents ask you this question is to help you plan for years down the road. Different jobs have different need and your parents want to make sure you have everything you need to succeed. If you want to be a doctor then you need to go to a special school i.e medical school, you want to be an artist, you need go to art school. May be you know what you want to be or maybe not, that is okay. You have ample time to think about your future. The best time to start planning for your future is right now. It’s not too early to start something worthy. But to do that, you need to understand a little bit about the grown up world i.e. Business, Entrepreneurship and mostly Kidpreneurship.
Grown up people earn money through job or business. If you are in job, you are actually working for others and making others’ rich. Jobs are risk free and it does not pay you too much money comparing with business. But if you start a small business at your tender age with an innovative idea and if you become successful you can earn lots of money for you and at the same time you can employ ample people from your community. Becoming an entrepreneur (be your own boss) is really pays you off in the long run. An entrepreneur can work for himself, solve social problem (unemployment) and earn money at the same time. We will motivate you to be social business entrepreneur (earning money at the same time solving social problem i.e unemployment problem by engaging others in your business).
