The New Totally Awesome Business Book for Kids (And Their Parents)There are children out there who start thinking about business and making money at an early age. They might start by having a lemonade stand outside their home or selling old toys/books.

If you have a child who shows signs of entrepreneurial spirit, it is important to nurture and grow this spirit and provide them with the necessary learning tools to succeed in later life.

The New Totally Awesome Business Book for Kids is a great example of a book that appeals to youngsters as young as 8 up to early teenager. Written by a brother and sister pair, this book discusses, in an entertaining and informative way, the basic concepts of how to run a business in today’s world as well as the skills every young entrepreneur should possess, such as knowing about budgets, networking, record keeping, research, advertising and how to work with others efficiently. It also gives ideas on business ethics and how to use the internet to make money.

The book also includes ideas of 20 super businesses, which switched-on kids can start right away, from babysitting to garage sales.

In my opinion, the easy style of writing with cartoons, quizzes, stories and games makes this book a fun read for youngsters who want to start making their own money by setting up their own business.

This book is available at Borders.com. Below is a synopsis from Borders, as well as a link to purchase the book.
