My Son the Entrepreneur

IMG_3853S My son Justin will be 15 years old in a little over a month. lol, sometimes I wonder how I am even surviving the teen years. The other day in the car, on the way to the skateboard park, we were talking about what he wants to do when he gets older. Like any teenager, his ultimate dream is to be a professional athlete ... in this case, the next Tony Hawk. The difference between now, and the last time we had this conversation (before I went to Iraq), is that today, he's also talking about a back-up plan ...


Apparently a guy came to their class on "career day", and told them that the best way to get rich is to own your own company. Fortunately, it appears as though that was a day that Justin was paying attention.


For the past few days, we've had several more conversations about the type of company he wants to own (skateboards, clothes, shoes, etc), and some of the steps he should take to go about achieving his goal. At his request, I just got on the Richdad website and ordered him a couple of books ... "Rich Dad Poor Dad for Teens", "Rich Dad's Rich Kid, Smart Kid: Giving Your Children a Financial Headstart", and "Own Your Own Corporation: Why the Rich Own Their Own Companies and Everyone Else Works for Them"


He's anxious to start reading them (after he finishes To Kill a Mockingbird for school of course). And I'm anxious to continue our conversations. I'm not sure exactly what I did right (if anything) to help bring about my son's attitude ... but I sure am thankful for it.

Keep havin FuN!
