Dream It, To See It!
I am a firm believer that if you dream it, work towards it, your dreams will come true. Hence my blog title In R Dream. Dreaming is something entrepreneurs do naturally. They may not call it dreaming, they may never consider it to be dreaming but in my opinion that is exactly what it is. We entrepreneurs are always looking for the next great idea, the next big hit, and the next business to lead us to wealth.
Entrepreneur [ en·tre·pre·neur ] A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so.
Like everything children get influenced by those around them. Along with the confidence we teach our children, the hard work ethic they see, we are entrepreneurs and teaching them the art of dreaming and reaching for those dreams to come true, happens naturally to us.
The other day the kids were all huddled together with a paper and pen. I asked them what they were up to and they had a ‘big idea’ they were drawing up their business plan. This is not the first ‘big idea’ and I am confident it will not be the last. Our little entrepreneurs see the value in business and the benefits that it will bring. We are always dreaming what if’s with them and I cannot wait to see where their dream will take them.
As a little girl I remember looking up to Barbie as my role model, she was a woman of many hats. A recent Canadian survey hosted on the Angus Reid Forum reveals that 70 per cent of Canadian women entrepreneurs believed that anything was possible when they were a young girl — a belief Barbie® advocates and is celebrating with the launch of her 150th career doll, Entrepreneur Barbie ®, in Canada.
Did you know?
Barbie® became an astronaut in 1965, four years before man walked on the moon. She also first ran for President of the United States in 1992. Entrepreneur Barbie® has a mission, to inspire every child’s imagination and to empower children to follow their dreams.
Alongside the launch of her 150th career doll Entrepreneur Barbie ®, the first-ever Barbie™ Business Bursary program is being introduced to inspire children to not only dream big, but to believe that those dreams can become a reality. The Barbie™ Business Bursary program is a national search for Canada’s Next Young Entrepreneurs, and a celebration of can-do spirit designed to spark the growth of Canada’s next-gen of leaders
The Barbie™ Business Bursary encourages Canadians to nominate a budding entrepreneur – yourself, children, siblings, cousins, students or friends – under the age of 18, who demonstrates true entrepreneurial spirit, from now until September 1, 2014. To enter the national competition, simply visit the www.barbie.com/mydreams and share your or your nominee’s entrepreneurial dream.
Barbie™ will select ten amazing nominees and post their video profiles on Barbie™ my Dreams; and a jury panel will then select three winners to receive a $2500 Barbie™ Business Bursary to fund their big ideas.
What is your ‘Big Idea’?
