Ever met “big” kids so bright, polite, and pleasant to be around that you automatically want to know all their mother’s secrets? This is precisely how we feel every time we get to spend time with 12-year-old twins Phoenix and Mingus and their super-mom, Charmin Roundtree-Baaqee. This month we paid a special visit to the sweet trio to talk about a topic close to Charmin’s heart—teaching kids about entrepreneurship.
As a full-time engineer and the owner of her own art consultancy (Art Is Luv), creativity and business ownership is something Charmin has incorporated into her parenting from Day 1. It also made her family the perfect fit to try out A Kids Company About’s brand-new venture, A Kids Class About—a series of streamable classes on compelling topics (Being A Musician, Embracing Courage, Living With Authenticity, and more), tailor-made for 10- to 15-year-olds.
One of our favorite classes is A Kids Class About Entrepreneurship, hosted by mother of two Paige Hendrix Buckner, the COO of Founder Gym. Why is entrepreneurship so important to expose kids to early on? As Paige explains it: “Entrepreneurship teaches a variety of skills that apply to all aspects of life. As kids bring their business ideas to life, they learn how to think critically, test their assumptions, build and iterate on their products or services, empathize with their customers, and collaborate with other people to run a successful company. It’s definitely an educational opportunity that builds resilience.”
Check out our interview with Charmin—and some thoughts from Paige, Phoenix, and Mingus—in our slideshow below! Plus, find out how using the code MOTHERMAG will score you 2 months of FREE classes at A Kids Class About!
(Pssst: If the trio look familiar, they invited us over for a home tour two years ago: peep it here!).
