The Entrepreneurs: You're Never Too Young to Learn

Is it ever too early to learn about business? Jonathon Fields doesn't think so. In a recent article in Psychology Today, he interviewed the founders of Young Entrepreneurs.com, Adam and Mathew Toren, who wrote the kids book on entrepreneurship-Kidpreneurs. The Toren brothers outlined why it's beneficial to teach entrepreneurship early in life.

Carter Hegenbarth is an 11 year old fifth grade student at Andrews Osborne Academy in Willoughby, Ohio. His fourth grade class project last year was to develop a small business.

Carter was interviewed on Entrepreneurs Club Radio recently and talked about the triumphs and challenges he faced in order to make a profit.
