My kids' current favorite show is Shark Tank, where budding entrepreneurs pitch ideas to a team of corporate tycoons who double as potential investors. While listening to concepts for, among other things, collapsible kayaks and colored fur spray for dogs, my daughters vigorously interrogate the television.
As we approach our one year anniversary of our appearance on Shark Tank, I am so thankful for all the support and guidance we received along the way. Now it's my turn to share what I've learned by offering aspiring entrepreneurs some words of wisdom and advice that I wish I had known when we first started.
We've created a few (totally fake, sadly not-for-sale) examples to send your child back to school feeling confident about their identity as well as the integrity of that peanut butter and fluff sandwich that you packed with loving care, and with the intent of surviving an ATV crash into the side of a brick building.
