Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs
In so many parts of the world, entrepreneurship isn’t a luxury but the only choice to survive and get ahead economically. Developed countries raise their children to be key contributors and leaders in the work place because there is a high probability that barring all ill-luck, a child that stays in school and gets as far as a college degree will land a reasonably comfortable job; and as long as he or she is able to keep a job, there will be a pension or retirement account to draw from when retirement comes around.
However, in a lot developing countries, this sunny scenario isn’t the case; rather entrepreneurial skills become the most nightly coveted tool to take care of you beyond retirement. Hence the dire need to start them young; as young as their first teenage years.
