Turning Kids Dreams In Entrepreneurship with Jess Ekstrom
I like to think I am a recovering ‘snow plow’ parent. You’ve heard of helicopter parents that hover over their children, right? Well, instead of just hovering, you remove all the obstacles for your kids in order for them not to experience disappointment. I think it’s hard for any parent to see their kids struggle, but the struggle is what builds resilience, right? This week on the podcast, we interviewed Jess Ekstrom to hear her story in entrepreneurship and her new book, Create Your Bright Ideas, for tweens and teens.
A piece of advice I love from Jess is around “safe falls.” Jess is a new Mom and her daughter is learning to walk. She said that she knows she can give her daughter more room to explore and test her new found skill when she knows she can fall safely. Jess said that’s the same for kids and entrepreneurship. You have to let them try on their own, especially when they can fail safely.
