“Every child is gifted. They just unwrap their packages at different times.”
Children are forever inquisitive and curious to learn new things and I must say that they are more sensitive to worldly issues than adults. The sudden urge to rectify a problem, when a child encounters one, sets them apart from us. Be it business, handling finances, meeting celebrities, attending press conferences, or inspiring people, this generation can do it all. Here is a list of some of the very young, child entrepreneurs who have made it big:
