Entrepreneurship

Last December I realized that I made a big mistake with JuniorBiz.

I’ve talked to hundreds of high school and middle school students and I found that most of them are curious about entrepreneurship but very few are serious about it. They all want to start businesses “someday.”

I want to help people start businesses right now. Not just help them think about doing it. So I created a site that’s designed to help the 20-something entrepreneur become a successful entrepreneur. I call it 14 Clicks.

Late last night I got an email that boggled my mind, in a good way.

It came from a young man named Kazuki Kinoshita. Kazuki is currently living amidst the devastation in Japan after the earthquake last Friday. I’ve heard the stories and watched the videos, but one thing I didn’t consider was that many of the businesses were wiped out as well.

I’m pretty level-headed but there are a few things that get under my skin.

Last week Yahoo! put up an article about our interviewees and over 400 people commented. About 90% of those comments were, “hooray teenagers,” “go for your dreams,” “that’s inspiring,” blah-dee-dah. But that other 10% really made me tick.

I can’t help but fire back. Below I’ve listed five of the more intelligent comments that hate on young entrepreneurs and I’ve detailed why they’re flat-out wrong.
