How to Raise your Kids to THINK like an Entrepreneur - Feat. Tameka Montgomery

  • October 2, 2019
  • BY ANIK SINGAL

Episode Game Plan:

Kids should learn entrepreneurship because it is not taught in school.

Our guest today, Tamika, commented, “The school systems certainly not helping and I haven't seen any change in that area myself.”

Entrepreneurship is important. It drives the economy of a nation. But get this: This is the point where education falls flat.

Which is why parents are playing vital roles in becoming the sparks that empower their kids to be entrepreneurs.

Today, we are fortunate enough to have Tamika here with us. She was appointed by President Obama to represent mostly all the entrepreneurial education that happens for the 22 million small businesses in the United States of America. This episode is a treasure trove of tips, ideas, and concrete steps to educate your kids about entrepreneurship.


In this episode, I asked:

  1. How did Tamika end up as the associate administrator of the office of entrepreneurial development of the SBA? (06:16)
  2. Why teach entrepreneurship to kids? Why not just put them in the school system as everyone else does? (16:27)
  3. How do you teach entrepreneurship to kids through daily living? (22:49)
  4. Intentional teaching is time-consuming. How can parents implement this easily? (42:06)
  5. What else can parents start doing with their kids in shaping their entrepreneurial spirits? (53:25)

Podcast 3 Keynotes:

  1. The reasons why you need to teach entrepreneurship to your kids at a young age, and how this will dramatically change their lives in ways you wouldn’t have thought possible.
  2. If you feel guilty about not entertaining your kids enough… forget about it. (This is not the reason why they lack the quality of an entrepreneur)
  3. Don’t answer their questions. It just so happens, paradoxically, that you can teach them more by not answering their questions.
