Knowledge is the key to your own freedom. Every successful entrepreneur today invested in becoming a key person of influence, what we call a KPI. I would teach and write about how to become a KPI in your industry in future tutorials and blog. But one key step these entrepreneurs took was to gain as much knowledge as they could about their industry and work. The easiest way to develop this attitude is to start right from a very young age. This is where parents come in. I have met adults who were neglected by their parent. Who never received any kind of general training and boost towards attaining extra knowledge outside of school. Funny enough, what you will need out there in the practical world is the knowledge you learn outside school.
Therefore, as an entrepreneur parent, the willingness and hunger for knowledge is a very important gift you should try to give to your children. When I was growing up, my mom will wake me up every morning to read before going to school. My mother was a teacher and is still a teacher, so it was impossible to say no! As a child, I was so irritated about it. You know from a child’s view, you are convinced that your parents really do crazy stuff but now I have my own two little kids. Now I can imagine how my mom must have felt when I will be like no I want to sleep, I don’t want to learn. I am so grateful to my mother that she forced this gift into my life: the urge and happiness to want to know more. The gift of wanting to learn more.
