Washington, DC, United States, 2009/08/13 - Washington, DC Entrepreneur creates Teen CEO home study course geared towards youth ages 18 and younger who do not have business experience or financial resources.
Group Interactive, Inc. today unveiled their highly anticipated Teen CEO Blueprint which is a home/private study course co-created by a group of entrepreneurial and visionary teens and their teen entrepreneur coach. The Teen CEO Blueprint is geared towards youth ages 18 and younger who do not have business experience or financial resources.
“Today’s teens are the ‘disruptive’ entrepreneurial leaders. They are competitive, innovative, fearless and technologically savvy by nature. They know that by focusing on helping a million people first they will earn a million dollars as a result,” said Group Interactive Founder, Shonika Proctor. “Entrepreneurship is a level of consciousness and they totally get that. The challenge that they struggle with is being under the age of 18 presents a different set of challenges that most entrepreneurs might take for granted such as opening a bank account without a co-signer.”
The Teen C.E.O. Blueprint includes 20+ audio CD’s, a 200 page accompanying workbook, a copy of Teen Entrepreneur Success Secrets book, a copy of the newly released Young Entrepreneur Society Movie and a one year subscription to Inc. or Black Enterprise Magazine. The course is unique in that all of the courses are taught by teen entrepreneurs. Some of the topics included are: Teen CEO’s and the Power of Giving, Bootstrapping For Teens: Strings Not Included, Outsourcing: Be 2 Places at Once and Write Now: 10 Steps to Writing and Publishing a Book.
The teens are from all over the U.S. from small towns to big cities and range in ages from 13 to 19. They run a variety of niche businesses and some of the CEO’s featured include: Danielle Herb, 15, who runs a company that teaches alternative healing and self-calming techniques for ADD/ADHD and Autistic children through the use of natural horsemanship, Patricio Quezada,18, who runs a technology training company for the Hispanic community, and 16 year old Muata Gibson-Hunter who is a published author and is creating a series of video games to create awareness for teens around the piracy of intellectual property.
