People sometimes question whether a kid can truly be an entrepreneur. Sure, they can have a lemonade stand or something like that, but does any kid have what it takes to be a “real” entrepreneur? The answer to that question is YES! Age doesn’t determine someone’s entrepreneurial spirit!
On the November 30th episode of the Creative Monday Discussion show, Mervin Budram was joined by 5-year-old Amani Nia Budd, the owner of Baby Lips Natural Lipgloss, 11-year-old Gia Castillo, owner of Gia’s Tie Dye World; 9-year old Noelli Sabido who founded Noelli’s Treasures, and 9-year old Zaira Rodriguez; a dancer, artist, and freelance entrepreneur.
They are all Belizean kidpreneurs with BIG dreams. They are perfect examples of what a kid can accomplish when they put their mind to it. They have some great insights into what it’s like to be a Kidpreneur and what it takes to succeed.
