What a Wonderful Gift for Some of Your Grandchildren

I have eight grandchildren and this year I decided to make their birthday gift worthwhile....give them money they could use to start generating even more income than just a "money gift!"...and push them a little bit to become an entrepreneur or an investor.

I checked out the Internet for some articles on what to do with investment money and found some quite interesting.  I also took an example of what one of their group did to work for "themselves rather than for someone else” and last year was making over $10 million from his diligent approach to marketing  (Electronic products used as a premium and a different way to market them).   I do have to say that he had taken a different course in college that was being offered in their curriculum. For four years prior he had worked for a few companies to learn the inside of how a business is run.

Younger grandchildren can also be helped on their way on learning how to manage money through a part time business, too. If you know how the stock market works, teach them that too as you give them "monied birthday gifts."

Also push them to take a job to learn how it works inside. (If you analyze how the laws of this country are written for people in their own business, entrepreneurs/inventors especially, you will learn they are not written for the “average worker."  For my first working years  I worked for many companies until my last 35 years  when I became an entrepreneur in the publishing business.

There are other things you can do to help your grandchildren make money work...but also make sure you teach them how to really make more for themselves and their families as the best gift possible....and we have set our sights on the great grandgirls!!



This week we use the letter "L"

Love letters left living laments,

Leaving leaderships lasciviousness

Lowering leaderships lavishly longer.

Likely leapfrogging living levels.
