Young Entrepreneurs Making a Difference and Inspiring All Ages

Young Entrepreneurs Making a Difference and Inspiring All Ages

As a parent of a young creative child I knew it was important to nurture her interests and give her the room and space to grow. I had no idea that this nurturing would lead us to where we are today. My goal is to teach my daughter valuable life skills while securing her future. I think it’s important for her to have strong core values and know how to apply them in business. When we were invited to participate in a Young Entrepreneur Expo, attending was a no brainer for us. 

 The event took place this past weekend at the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island. We had entrepreneurs as young as 6 and as old as 20 representing their businesses! It was an amazing event to be a part of and experience. As parents we were there to help our children but they run their table, talk to shoppers and process sales. What a proud moment this was for parents, to see our kids living out their dreams. If it just stopped there this would be a great story. However, it didn’t. In addition to being given a platform to showcase their business, the children had a ribbon cutting ceremony for their businesses and were given a citation from Nassau County. News 12 Long Island came out and interviewed the parents and children. You can see the interview here

Outside there was a face painter, bouncy house and snacks for the kids. They are still kids after all and they enjoyed the breaks! All in all I would say the organizer of this event, Belinda Watkins of QB Generational change really outdid herself! QB Generational change is a youth organization that exists specifically to empower youth with financial education and community development which includes entrepreneurship and technology.
