EntrepreneurshiP

How does business and entrepreneurship fit with the Christian family? Well, we at Teach Them Diligently believe God has given Christians business as a tool to promote Him and His gospel. We hope these posts will help you better succeed at growing your business for God’s glory.

What Is Entrepreneurship?

Entrepreneurship is simply put creating a business. Paul used making tents in the market to spread the gospel. Business just like anything else in life is a tool God has given us to serve Him with. These articles should help you not only succeed at business but also see how to keep your business Christ centered. 

Teaching Entrepreneurial Skills

Have you ever had a lemonade stand?

If you answered yes, you know a little bit about having an entrepreneurial spirit.

Teach kids entrepreneurial skills by having them come up with their own product, service, or invention. You can give them some parameters to guide them or give them free reign to come up with any type of product or service.

One idea is to have the student use his or her first name and come up with a hypothetical product to sell that starts with the same letter as their name.

Homeschooling & Entrepreneurship

Homeschool students have a great atmosphere for building entrepreneurial skills.

Because they are not constrained by a fixed schedule, homeschool students have the flexibility to study and also work.

Having a lawn mowing service, babysitting, or baking are three popular jobs for homeschool entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurship for High Schoolers

Critical thinking and problem solving are essential to developing entrepreneurship for high school students.

Break kids up into small groups for brainstorming sessions to get the creativity flowing. What does profit mean?

Teach kids about managing money as this is one of the first steps in becoming a successful entrepreneur.

Encouraging Creativity in Your Children

Encourage kids to come up with their own ideas and give them the freedom to do so.

What does this look like? Allow your children to pretend play, make things, make messes, and mistakes without hovering. 

Giving your child unstructured time allows them to come up with their own ideas and gets those creative juices flowing.
