JJ Ramberg, host of Your Business on MSNBC and the founder of Goodshop is releasing the book The Startup Club: The Big Idea. It’s a fun fiction early-reader series about a group of elementary school kids who use their creativity and passions to start small businesses.
Kids are natural entrepreneurs – just think of all the lemonade stands you see over the summer. As an entrepreneur, a journalist who covers entrepreneurship, and a mom of three kids (7, 8 and 9), JJ was shocked when she couldn’t find any books that tap into kids’ natural interest in starting a business. It seemed like a wasted teaching opportunity.
So, together with Melanie Staggs and S. Taylor, she wrote a book that is both fun to read and based on characters that real kids can use as inspiration when they start their own kid-run companies. Through the book, kids will learn the components of starting a business in an age appropriate way. The book comes out Aug 7 but is available for pre-order now.
