Inspiring Young Entrepreneurs

Kids have limitless imagination and believe what they can dream, they can create.  Many haven’t considered the possibility they can fail. Wouldn’t it be great if all entrepreneurs could be so free?

Host Mary McCarthy and Mike Davis, President of Junior Achievement of Central Ohio discuss ways to inspire young people to become the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Junior Achievement Alumni are 143% more likely to have started a business compared to the general public.

Junior Achievement prepares young people for the “business of life” by pairing them with adults who can help them learn money skills, develop career skills and an entrepreneurial way of thinking. They work with kids from kindergarten through high school and get big results.

“The earlier you start, the more time you have to mess up.”

Emil Motycka, Motycka Enterprises, who started his own lawn care business at age 8 from Junior Achievement’s blog, 7 Activities for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Host Mary McCarthy is the President of YMT Consultants, an entrepreneurial consulting and training firm. It focuses on one-on-one work with microbusiness owners (business with 20 or fewer employees, including the solopreneur), assisting them to monetize and create systems for their small businesses.
