How my kids are making money

You probably already know that I get my kids working and making money pretty early on. They start with little jobs around the house at 2, regular chores at 4, little businesses around 9, and by the time they are teenagers they are pretty good at making money.

Along the way, they are expected to read my books, as well as a few others that I pick out. They also usually sit in on various company meetings I have and training sessions I put on.

In the Summer of 2020, or as we call it ‘The Summer that never was’, I had my 3 youngest boys learn photoshop, web design, video editing, coding for Swift, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, SQL and more. They became so proficient at it that I started giving them jobs and paying them for their work.

Although they do lots of things to earn money, the most impactful book that I created that has helped other families and their kids, not only mine, is my book Guerrilla Parenting: How to Raise An Entrepreneur, which became a best seller before I even wrote a word of it. To this day it is still one of my better sold books. The most important question I tell parents to ask themselves is, “Does my child’s current education live up to my child’s full potential?” If the answer is not an immediate YES, then it’s time to look into the unconventional for options. Guerrilla Parenting offers learning solutions and covers business plans for:
  • Door-to-door car wash
  • Enchilada sales
  • Virtual assistant services
  • Musical lessons
  • Babysitting services
  • Jewelry making and selling
  • Personal shopping services
  • And more!
You can get your copy of Guerrilla Parenting at With COVID still being a challenge and schools are unpredictable, it’s important to share with your child other avenues for them to find success in the world rather than relying solely on the educational system to guide them.
