The emphasis should and does always start with: education, education, education. Nice to have money to spend, but in order to be an entrepreneur you need your head filled. Educate your children!! Let them get a high school degree. That is the basis for it all. The basis. And to have people copy one’s own life choice or field of interest in academia does not really help. People should be educated and taught to respect themselves and thereby others. Formal education. So you stand on your own two feet, have a degree and know you can go on. To make the choices for your life yourself. Not others. Your horizon widens, you are the master of your own fate.
Also: not everybody wants or should be or could be an entrepreneur. That implies also that entrepreneurship a.k.a. a means to get wealthy is or should be the only way to go. That is ridiculous and denying the talents and freedom of choice of people. As if only if one is a businessman or businesswoman (s)he is somebody worthwhile to him or herself and/or the community at large. That type of thinking is a disease of these time in which only business and going for the top dollar seems to be the way destroying the world. Go have a healthy chat in Zucotti Park. If you do you will see masses of a.o. black people participating. They do not need to be egged on. They think for themselves and are very articulate also in discussions. And why not. Do not treat people including black people as dumb puppets who need to be led as sheep. (Who also are quite intelligent but that is another matter).
Another thing; get yourselves a copy of the very insightful “Inside Job”. The ugly truth behind the 2008 financial crisis.
Sorry. “Inside Job” is a Oscar nominated documentary. It is out on DVD and cheap to buy.
