Our daughter is what I call a serial entrepreneur. She is now reaching college age, and she has earned enough money with her business ventures to pay for it all on her own. She started out delivering daily newspapers. She developed a way to handle more routes than the other kids in a shorter period of time. The newspaper circulation department paid her for her ideas. It was only fitting that she would be going to one of the better business schools in Singapore for her education in business management. She had such a natural ability that going into business education for a degree seemed the natural course to take.
She did wonderfully. Her abilities thrived and bloomed in school. The natural talent was enhanced by now learning how things work in the business world. She started two businesses while in school. The money paid her way all through college. She stayed in her own apartment close to the school. The company that hired her for her internship offered her a full time position upon her graduation. A project she undertook for the company brought them in several million in fast revenue.
She had great instincts for business. She just needed to learn the methods that have been tired and proven true over the years as well as all of the technical jargon. I have always said that once you know the jargon, that is half the battle of understanding the field you are entering. She is one of those people who could sell sunshine to a desert dweller and ice to someone living in the Arctic. I see great potential for her. She is already the highest paid person in her position at the company she works for, and other companies have been trying to recruit her. I am glad we pushed her a little to go ahead and attend business college.
