The Wise Walker project started about 18 months because I wanted to teach Annalise and Sarah about entrepreneurship. I had no idea at the time exactly what I thought I was going to teach them or how valuable it would be for them at their young age. I just thought it would be fun to expose and explore entrepreneurship with them.
As I worked with the girls, I discovered that there we actually a LOT of super valuable experiences! In a nutshell, they were getting a glimpse of how the world works. Products and services start out as ideas... then a person turns those ideas into a reality... which sometimes leads to a startup... and a web site... and manufacturing... and marketing... and PR... and employees... and so on. Each aspect was an opportunity to learn and, especially, a chance to do!
I was learning a lot too, about how to share the lesson of entrepreneurship with kids. Together, we learned so much that I wanted to share what we learned with other entrepreneurial mom's and dad's who have an interest in exposing their kids to these lessons. To do that, I'm going to write about all those lessons and post them up on a blog called NEWCO Kids and make it available as resource for other entrepreneurial families.
