Episode 199 | Encouraging an Entrepreneurial Mindset in Our Kids | Michelle Visser of Souly Rested

There are countless skills a person gains on the path of entrepreneurship, and this goes for kids too!  The kind of environment we create for our kids and the guidance we give them play a large role in determining what endeavors they will pursue throughout childhood and beyond.  Whether your children have a natural entrepreneurial bent or not, you will learn about the many gifts entrepreneurship has to give to those who are willing to give it a try.  Join us as Michelle shares about her many years of parenting and homeschooling and raising entrepreneurial kids.
