In a pathbreaking book by the same name, “Raising an Entrepreneur”, based on interviews with 70 top entrepreneurs and their moms, author Margot Machol Bisnow provides a guide to help your kids identify their passion and figure out how they can spend their professional lives doing something they love.

Margot shows parents that their well-intentioned efforts often boomerang and that by ignoring their kids' skills and interests, they can inadvertently create pressure and anxiety, thwarting their kids' ability to excel and find happiness.

Too often, following your heart is deemed impractical, whereas it’s often exactly what leads to success and fulfillment. This book shakes the longstanding assumptions of parenting. Through 99 stories of people who are now changing the world, she shows us how to raise creative, confident, resilient children who are filled with joy and purpose.

And the things that parents say to their kids can either encourage and give them confidence, or lower their self-esteem and hold them back in life.

Join us in this exciting ​​parenting fireside chat with our eclectic panel of speakers who are successful artists, authors, entrepreneurs, business people, parents, and pathfinders in their own right - to explore this important topic on raising an entrepreneur, drawing on some of the most valuable lessons from the book - which directly translates to what it takes to raise successful kids - but on their own terms!
