Kidpreneurs … it’s kind of a funny word to say, right? But there’s nothing funny about having a great idea and turning into a business that can earn you money! That’s what the new book Kidpreneurs: Young Entrepreneurs With Big Ideas by entrepreneur brothers Adam and Matthew Torren is all about!


Big Ideas

Who says kids can’t have big ideas? Kidpreneurs starts off by asking a question you’ve probably already heard a zillion times before: What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up? Even though the future may seem a long way off, this book says a great time to start planning what path your career will take later in life when you’re a kid.


”Did you know that many grown-ups end up doing something completely different than what they thought they wanted to do as kids? Sometimes it’s because they changed their minds once they got older, but other times it’s because they didn’t have a plan to help them make their dreams come true.”


To help you start working on your plan, Kidpreneurs gives you some great info about the grown-up world of working and helps you figure out whether you’re an entrepreneur or not.


Be Your Own Boss

So what exactly is an entrepreneur anyway? Well, it’s someone who has lots of great business or money-making ideas and works to turn those ideas into reality. Usually, entrepreneurs work for themselves, meaning they don’t have a boss telling them what to do. In fact, some entrepreneurs are so good at what they do they need to hire other people to work for them!



Check out Kidpreneurs to find out more about what being an entrepreneur means (there’s even a quiz to make sure you’re all clear on the details!). After that, the book goes on to give lots of helpful tips and advice to help you start being one! From thinking about your interests and talents to scoping out potential customers to building a website for your business and more, this book will show you everything you need to know in order to be a great Kidpreneur yourself!


Some Samples

Kidpreneurs gives lots of cool examples of businesses kids can create themselves:

  • Babysitting service
  • Lawn care service
  • Lemonade stand
  • Dog-walking service

  • If one of these ideas sounds good to you or gives you an even BETTER idea of a business you can start and run yourself, grab the book to find out how to put your plan in motion!



    Fun Features

    Kidpreneurs isn’t just a book you read – it’s a book you study, write in and keep that can make you an expert, successful entrepreneur! Here are some of the extra features of the book:

  • Quizzes at the end of each chapter to make sure you got all the important stuff down

    You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

    I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

    If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

    Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
