Due to the coronapandemie were given to the children for several months at home, in class. But there was still room for a lot more than just school subjects such as math and language. With three kids, and their dads tell them about the companies which they founded, and what they learned.
Inspired by their uncle, wanted to be a brother Junayd, and sister, Juwayriah for years like a private business. "That's when the coronacrisis broke out, and we're all a little more at home, I had a little extra time to help them," says the father, He. After a brainstorming session, decided that the family, doing odd Jobs in the neighborhood to begin with.
as the weekend went on, the children will travel back in time to the chores to be done. Weeds were weeded, grass was mowed, and Juwayriah, if even Zoom to read it. "I think that's very exciting." Her brother Junayd hopes that he will soon be going to talk to you. "Or have a dog to walk, and that seems to me to be too much fun."

in Addition to all of the work was father, He also have a few questions for the kids. "I wanted it to, she thought about why she wanted to do." Ultimately, wanted to get the children interested in making money and being an entrepreneur, but also to help people. "I want people to be happy with our work," says Juwayriah.
He hopes that his children will have a great sense of responsibility to the company to leave. At the same time, he wants to have children at the same time gain first-hand experience. "This is the kind of things you do with your family and provides great memories."you can learn a lot from children to be at such a young age, a small business can I start? Mariolein van der Plas, director of the Young entrepreneurs foundation, will see many benefits as the children can actually continue with the business. But even if the kids just give it a try, they will learn a lot from a company of their own. "They're going to work together, they learn how to cope with hardship, express their creativity and to think critically. All of the things that is also, later, could come in handy." Especially for children who are in elementary school, then it's a lot of impact, according to research by professor of entrepreneurship, Mirjam van Praag. Skills such as creativity and entrepreneurship, it may be that we just picked up. "That is because young children are very open to new skills," suggests Van der Plas. However, it is important to ensure that the business is in a safe and secure environment, it is not. "Your parents are there, so it is a good example of this. As an experiment, and there is no number to get it, there is a lot that you can do."
After the Mare, and her friend, Laurine videos on YouTube, along and saw what you textiles, you can paint it in tie dye style-they went with a start-up capital from their parents to go to the store. "We have got 40 euros from my parents borrowed it, that was deducted from my pocket money," says Mare.

The paint was not that bad, but then it was a more difficult task: how many have you sold it? "The equipment used to take a great deal of money, and we would, of course, have to make a profit." In the end, the price of a T-shirt, set of 10 euros. On the Instagram post of the two pictures in order to make their products in the spotlight.
“You can be in the economieboeken to read it, but this is a far better way to learn.”Hope Blüm, the father of the Mare,
Until now, then it's not a storm, there is still only one T-shirt sold. "But we have to continue to keep this up. The trick is to get a lot of it on social media, don't you don't."
the Father's Hope is looking forward with a happy look. "I'm surprised at how quickly you are some online shop actually starts. This makes the threshold very low to begin with." At the same time, it is a lesson to you: you're not the only one with this plan. "You can stay in the economieboeken to read it, but this is a far better way to learn."
The escaperoom the family and eternal peace, in the had done, for they could not make it yourself? With this in mind, we developed the plan to Escape the Quarantine. Father, Mark, an entrepreneur himself, has helped with the children each and every day for half an hour with the set-up of the company. "In fact, I learned about them, the agile methodology, with short sprints to work on. They are also good for their concentration, it will keep," he explains.
Together, came up with a family name, and built a simple web site. Myra and Eldin were next, and the puzzles people do in their escaperoom had to fix it. "I thought that was the most fun thing to do, but I thought it was quite nice to have a brainstorming session," says Eldin. "You can do a lot of things at the same time, to think, and then it goes very, very quickly."
“If you do it in small steps, then it will automatically be a much bigger project.”Mark, eternal peace, dear father of Myra and Eldin
A minor setback, came as the escaperoom end, the schools were open, and, therefore, there was less and less time to play with it. "You know, I've been in my class talking about it and told people, they said that they were downloading," says Eldin know.
If the escaperoom "likes" at the end to make a donation. "Half of the money will go to the corona field of research," says Myra. So far, there is still no money has come in. "It wasn't necessarily the goal," said Mark. His children are mostly want to show is that it is not difficult to get started. "If you do it in small steps, then it will automatically be a much bigger project."
