Vision for Entrepreneurial Education for Children Easily and Frugally

Have you noticed that there is nothing available in government schools about financial topics? Unless, just lately, the credit card companies are invited to come in? Have you noticed that even in business schools in university, seldom is there anything for entrepreneurs? Have you noticed that entrepreneurial education, offered by entrepreneurs is very expensive? And sometimes a little deceptive? At least hard to sort out? And certainly not available to poor children. Worse, the education and mentorship available to the poor is often of the poorest quality and even teaches them CONTRARY TO what a successful business would teach them. I sure have noticed this. Repeatedly.

This could be the answer to poverty! And so much more!

If education is not about work, what is it doing?

Enter Susan Maher. She broke the mold, in my opinion, by helping the most exclusive schools see that they could help students who, while extremely bright, were not at that point producing academics as well as expected. Some direct teaching in what I call study skills and just a little accommodation, and then we have these students shining.  She has more vision. She want poor children to have access to practical, applicable business training so they can be entrepreneurs where they are.

And she has seen it work. In a project with others, a curriculum was created and taught. It works in poor areas in the US and in very poor countries. The same curriculum works in Puerto Rico and poor Chicago. It had immediate economic impact. Hear her explain how business or entrepreneurship can be taught easily and frugally to children who need it.

Christianity and Prosperity

Is prosperity a proper topic for a Christian? Does Christianity provide for prosperity? For equality, freedom, and racial harmony? Find the definite answers, from history. And yes… God loves you!


I wrapped up my mini-series on prosperity this week. Thanks for not writing a torrent of criticism. Many words make for many places to be imprecise, misunderstood, and plain mistaken. I rely on tutelage and grace of Holy Spirit.

But really, prospserity needs to be looked at in 2 new ways, or 2 ways that are seldom talked about. The first is that prosperity is fundamentally about having enough to richly invest in a new generation — because that is where the most abundant harvest will come from — naturally speaking. The men’s world of economics is normally the place where monetary considerations are discussed, but the whole point is the women’s world of child-rearing, in my view. Investing in the Kingdom, investing in children, that is what is truly important; the rest is toys, fun, luxury.

And secondly, we seldom talk about the necessity of diligence. Proverbs makes it clear. I think that this is because there is an element, like me, that maybe work too hard, and faith is like rest. (And there were those trained that poverty was holy.) The faith message is and must be really about the grace of God and the often miraculous part of prosperity. The childrearing end of that must feature some training in diligence — without of course, overlooking faith.

How could we more use faith to improve, deepen, enrich the reaing of children?
