OH dear! I should have posted this about a month ago. The minipreneur book workshop I attended was awesome and a must share.
Despite the pouring rain and scary rain reviews, I was able to get to the venue a bit late and not so much was missed.
Lanre, the lovely lady and author of the both was so easy to flow with as she explained what being an entrepreneur was and how to get our children to bring out the entrepreneurial spirit in them
She has a unique style of teaching that is easy for children and adults to follow. I can tell you I jotted down notes, plenty lines were filled in my notebook as I scribbled on like an effico.
Then we had the fun part, our group discussions: Primary teachers and secondary teachers. We were to come up with a business plan based on what children loved. Sort of what we could build from a habit that children loved doing.
Of course, I was in the primary group 😁. So we chose TV because children would do anything to watch TV. Very interesting session, we were actually able to come up with lots of professions.
It was kind of like taking a bad habit and squeezing out the positive side, and nurturing it without actually killing the creativity, talent and imagination the child might have.

After the discussion, then came the group presentations… I liked my group’s presentation, it was obvious we won. But the day wasn’t about winning, it was about helping the future leaders of tomorrow to think outside the box because the future will definitely be more challenging than we have it now.
I definitely recommend this book to parents and schools. It’s so easy to read and understand, and the children will love the activities Lanre discussed. Even adult would pick one or two things to help build their business ideas. We are definitely going to add it to our bookstore list👌.
