There are kids who are showing good skills with the art and craft and making successful business models.
Why start early?
There are benefits of starting early. It is like you have started the race before everyone else and even you are doing anything part-time will add up and make to advance than those who aren’t doing anything. Even tiny experience is better than zero.
If your part-time is delivering you some cash inflow and you are financially backed by your parents, you can always save and even invest that extra cash which will make you more financially mature.
In due course of time, you can invest that money in your studies and higher education without looking for a loan. You may have less debt than your fellow students.
Entrepreneurship at an early stage also helps in giving a new perspective to your life and the society you live in.
You start identifying the passion and abilities along with the satisfaction that you are contributing to your society and making the world a better place. This new view will enable you to develop qualities like generosity, problem-solving attitude, more focus towards enhancing skills and less prone to time wasters.
This new focus will save you from all the bad habits and bad things which causes sufferings, negative pressure and depression. You may be more lively and enthusiastic because of the feeling that you are creating something meaningful.
How to start?
