Parents: Imagine you had the power to help your teen become independently wealthy? Would you use that power?

Parents: Imagine you had the power to help your teen become independently wealthy? Would you use that power?

As a parent I wanted my son to grow up feeling safe and I wanted him to find some direction in life that would enable him to do the things in life he loved and become successful at them. I have always believed that in choosing to have a child that as a parent I must stick with them from baby to adult and help guide them in making their lifestyle and work choices.

My own son left school at 17 and started work in a small workshop repairing electrical related faults on cars. At 21 years of age, he has developed excellent fault finding skills and is able to replace parts and repair electrics for customers.He has also developed team building skills and has developed skills that help him to relate to customers and suppliers.

In only 4 years, he is destined to start his own business and be servicing cars within a 20 mile radius.

Now, a lot of people say that it is not possible for him to achieve this in only a few years in the trade, but with careful thought toward only supplying the services he can handle, starting and running a business will be a piece of cake for him.

Especially as he has some seasoned business people around him who will support him with the development of his business.

And at only 21 years of age, he has few responsibilities, which means he is even more likely to succeed.

Yes, i’m pretty proud of what he is about to do, but i realise that he wouldn’t be able to achieve this without the love and support of those around him.
