Encouraging Entrepreneurship in Your Children
Deep down, nearly every one of us wants to be an entrepreneur. However, forgoing your weekly paycheck to follow your true passion takes lots of self-confidence. Many of us lack that confidence. Therefore, a great portion of our lives may be spent working to build someone else's wealth.
If that confidence was instilled within us at a younger age, we might all have the courage to open up a business. Give your children the opportunity to truly be in charge of their lives by encouraging a sense of entrepreneurship in their youth.
Encouraging entrepreneurship within your children can teach them to be:
An effective leader
A strong decision maker
Confident in their ideas and ability to succeed
Raising an entrepreneur is more than telling your child to make money; it's about telling them to go against the crowd and follow their own intuition. Since many parents have instilled this sense of confidence in their children, the sight of self-made wealthy teens is becoming more and more common.
When encouraging entrepreneurship within your children, the only thing you have to fear is the embarrassment of declaring that your 15-year-old earns a higher yearly income than you!

Raising a Young Entrepreneur
Teaching your children about entrepreneurship need not require a fat pocket. In fact, the basis of an entrepreneurial mindset is self-sufficiency. Therefore, children can come up with the money to start the business through their own efforts.
Once your child has invested time, effort, and their own money into their business startup, they are more likely to see it through and become successful business owners.
At Zamora they'll learn every aspect of doing hair and will get guidance each step of the way and we’ll be able tweak their business until it becomes profitable. When your child embraces failure as a learning experience rather than a collapse, you'll begin to see a flourishing entrepreneur growing before your eyes.
You can encourage entrepreneurship within your kids by teaching them that:
Any idea is a valid business idea
Failure is okay as long as you keep improving
A profitable business requires continuous learning and tweaking
Creativity is what counts
Being innovative makes you stand out from your competitors
We teach teens to be resilient and keep moving forward toward their dreams. At Zamora we encourage them to seek greater levels of success. Along the way, continue to promote self-sufficiency, independent thinking, and confidence. With these three traits, success is theirs for the taking!

WOW!!! I mean...wow. Zamora's is awesome! Tonika and her team are the best. My daughter is a young CEO with a natural hair line, Curlanistas. Tonika coached and mentored my daughter and taught her how to style and properly care for natural hair. She also helped her with preparing for a speaking engagement. Can we say money well spent? She really helped Lexi with finding her voice and message for her speaking engagement. When it was time for her to speak at the event the crowd was blown away. If I could give 10 stars I would, they are simply the best. Everyone at the salon is lovely! CHECK THIS PLACE OUT! IT'S WORTH IT!

Few people actually think like true entrepreneurs. There is a difference between creating a job for yourself and creating a business.
