Hi parents,

i'm just wondering if you all are supportive of your children becoming an entrepreneur? My nephew is very good in art and craft, just thinking how I can cultivate that entrepreneurship in him from young.

Online is a good place to start. Low cost.

Entrepreneurship has to be cultivated deliberately... otherwise our kids will grow up thinking jobs are the only option in life.

i dont understand what is 'cheap money'.
i have friends doing handicraft beading and also seen mummies selling things that they sew and putting on online blog for sale.
don't see any problem. he who can appreciate the craftwork, will not mind paying for what it is worth. :)
