Is your child passionate about something? Maybe it's music, sports, theatre, writing, building things, or helping others--the kind of creative pursuits that create distinguished leaders and make change in the world. All parents want their kids to have success, but how do you help them cultivate their talent and vision for a personally fulfilling and financially successful life? Once you've recognized their drive and passion, how do you set your little trailblazers free?

Raising an Entrepreneur presents seventy-six stories from the mothers of some of the most successful entrepreneurs today. Entrepreneurs are the new rock stars--they're the ones who turn their passions into ingenious projects, because they're willing to risk failure to make their dreams come true. Highlighting the various achievements of innovators from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds--such as Geek Squad's Robert Stephens and Nantucket Nectars' Tom Scott, nonprofit founders like Mama Hope's Nyla Rodgers and Pencils of Promise's Adam Braun, profit for purpose creators like TOMS Shoes' Blake Mycoskie and FEED Projects' Ellen Gustafson, activists like Mike de la Rocha and Erica Ford, and artists like actress Emmanuelle Chriqui and songwriter Benny Blanco--and with photos of the entrepreneurs as children, these inspirational interviews will provide guidance and support on nurturing your own change maker.

Not every kid will be an entrepreneur, but all kids have something that makes them unique. If you're seeking a way to nurture your children's passions and help them harness their talent, drive, and grit into a fulfilling life purpose, this book is for you. With these ten rules and numerous inspiring stories, you'll gain confidence in raising your child into a creatively successful adult.
