Let me introduce the team behind Enterprise for Kids. All up, we number nine “budding entrepreneurs” and we are all members of one big happy family!
Our eldest is Kaitlin. She is nudging sixteen and has a passion for the creative arts. She’s an exceptional drawer, loves photography and gets along really well with toddlers.
Jai, at fourteen, loves playing sport. He is very bright and he is incredibly skilled with using computers and working with numbers.
Next in line is Flynn. Sport is also one of his passions. He too is skilled with the creative arts. He has an easy going nature and tremendous confidence with talking to others. Flynn is twelve.
Amber, who’s ten, follows in her older sister’s artistic footsteps. She is a good organizer, loves reading and writing stories and she gets along well with everyone.
Kit is six. He loves all things electronic and has lots of buddies at school. He’s right into his football and can also talk to anyone. He has the brightest smile you’ve ever seen.
Chayse is a thinker and has a wild sense of humor. He is exceptionally bright and has turned four. He thinks he should be doing whatever his older brothers do!
Akaisha is our little baby at just fourteen months. She is the last of our children (we think!!) and is definitely the one in charge in our household!
All our kids hope to embrace Enterprise for Kids and develop a mindset for success in order to become young entrepreneurs.
Now that leaves us…
Cathy, my wife, is a trained school teacher with a passion for raising children in a holistic way. She is the backbone behind this family and has a dream to develop and run a school where all the children are free to learn using their passions and natural talents. A school where kids learn to discover enterprise, develop their entrepreneurial skills and do so without the social conditioning found in our “normal” school system that can often stifle childrens’ uniqueness. Cathy sees deep connections between the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual parts of us and tries, whenever she can, to foster these connections in our own children.
My name is Trevor and I’m also a school teacher. I enjoy all things to do with nature. I’m fortunate to have such a wonderful family and to have the opportunity to work with children. I support the idea that schools (in general) don’t provide children with a “financial” education and certainly don’t teach children to be entrepreneurial. This trait, more often than not, is developed through adversity and a feeling of “not fitting in” when going through the “normal” school system. You only have to read articles and books about amazing entrepreneurs like Richard Branson and see how most stepped away from the social conditioning of the “normal” school system and achieved success far beyond their wildest dreams. My hope is to change our own childrens’ thinking through Enterprise for Kids and go on a journey that will open up opportunities we’ve only ever dreamed about.
