Is your child passionate about something?

All parents want their kids to have success, but how do you help them cultivate their talent and vision for a personally fulfilling and financially successful life? Once you’ve recognized their drive and passion, how do you set your little trailblazers free?

Highlighting the various achievements of innovators from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds—such as Geek Squad’s Robert Stephens and Nantucket Nectars' Tom Scott, nonprofit founders like Mama Hope’s Nyla Rodgers and Pencils of Promise's Adam Braun, profit for purpose creators like TOMS Shoes' Blake Mycoskie and FEED Projects’ Ellen Gustafson, activists like Mike de la Rocha and Erica Ford, and artists like actress Emmanuelle Chriqui and songwriter Benny Blanco—and with photos of the entrepreneurs as children, these inspirational interviews will provide guidance and support on nurturing your own change maker. Not every kid will be an entrepreneur, but all kids have something that makes them unique. If you’re seeking a way to nurture your children’s passions and help them harness their talent, drive, and grit into a fulfilling life purpose, this book is for you. With these ten rules and numerous inspiring stories, you’ll gain confidence in raising your child into a creatively successful adult.

The basis for a major documentary, two leading experts sound an urgent call for the radical reimagining of American education so we can equip students for the realities of the twenty-first-century economy. We prize academic achievement, pressuring our children to get into the "right" colleges, have the highest GPAs, and pursue advanced degrees. But while students may graduate with credentials, by and large they lack the competencies needed to be thoughtful, engaged citizens and to get good jobs in our rapidly evolving economy. Alarmingly, our methods of schooling crush the creativity and initiative young people really need to thrive in the twenty-first century. Now bestselling author and education expert Tony Wagner and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith call for a complete overhaul of American schools, sharing insights and stories from the front lines. Their powerful, urgent message identifies the growing gap between credentials and competence--and offers a framework for change. Most Likely to Succeed presents a new vision of American education, one that puts wonder, creativity, and initiative at the very heart of the learning process and prepares students for today's economy.

Choosing between the stability of a traditional career and the upside of entrepreneurship? Why not have both? Becoming a full-time entrepreneur can look glamorous from the outside. Who doesn’t want to chase their dreams, be their own boss, and do what they love? But the truth is that entrepreneurship is often a slog, with no regular hours, no job security, and very little pay. What if there was a way to have the stability of a day job with the excitement of a startup? All of the benefits of entrepreneurship with none of the pitfalls? In The 10% Entrepreneur, Patrick McGinnis shows you how, by investing just 10% of your time and resources, you can become an entrepreneur without losing a steady paycheck. McGinnis details a step-by-step plan that takes you from identifying your first entrepreneurial project to figuring out the smartest way to commit resources to it. He shows you how to select and engage in projects that will provide you with upside outside the office while making your better at your day job. He also profiles real-world 10% Entrepreneurs such as... •Luke Holden, a cash-strapped recent college graduate, who started his own lobster-roll empire and oversaw much of its first year of operations, all while working full time in corporate America •Dipali Patwa, a designer and mom whose side project designing and selling infant clothing is now a sensation. •A group of friends who met at a 6am Bible study class and went on to start a brewery that now generates millions in sales . A successful 10% Entrepreneur himself, McGinnis explains the multiple paths you can follow to invest your cash, time, and expertise in a start-up—including as a founder, angel, adviser, or aficionado. Most importantly, you don’t have to have millions in disposable income to become a 10% Entrepreneur. When you put McGinnis’s 10% principles into action, you’ll quickly start racking up small wins, then watch as they snowball into your new (and far more entrepreneurial) life.
