I looked at other ethnicities who encourage entrepreneurship business owning in their communities and in their families, and the success they have from it. I knew that this was something that I wanted my son to participate in, and be a part of, to be exposed to, and learn about.

Young people actually want to find a way by which they can be a contributor, not only to their own lives, and the lives of their families, but to the larger economy.

Every student enters the program with a business idea, with an essay. Even our smallest children, our six- and seven-year-olds, even it's just a two-liner of what kind of business they'd like to start. During that six week process, business consultants, teachers, teach the children various facets of business planning, from how to write a business plan to how to research your market to how to promote yourself at special events. Children then begin to write a business plan around this idea.
The salad dressing is not made by the students in a little classroom and they're mixing it up and throwing it in bottles in their garage and then running around trying to sell it. The actual product is produced by our co-processor, so this is a legitimate food product that meets all specifications, that has met all of the testing, that is packaged and delivered and purchased by the major grocery stores, and they love it.

They decided to plant a garden and give the produce away to the needy in the community, and also promote the products through the farmer's market. After their first initial sales at the farmer's market, they realized that this would not fund a college education, so different people came in to support them, and the idea came about from them to, "Why not sell salad dressing?"

Entrepreneurship is about business skills. It's about all kinds of opportunity analysis. It's about developing your own skills related to being good at something, so you can create your own business. It's a whole series of things. It focuses on you being the entrepreneur. Whereas general business skills usually talk about becoming an entry-level employee, and using business skills and business information to move up the ladder.
