Empowering Young Minds through Entrepreneurship

Do you have a child who wants to be an entrepreneur?

In our latest episode of “Out & About with Antionette,” I had the privilege of interviewing Sherri Jones, a serial entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist who is making a significant impact on young minds through entrepreneurship.



In the episode, Sherri shares her inspiring journey and how she and her husband co-founded Youth in Business, an education program dedicated to equipping kids with financial knowledge and independence. They have become a trusted resource for parents, nurturing young entrepreneurs and guiding countless families in helping their children achieve financial independence and realize their dreams.


With a background in teaching and business ownership, Sherri recognized the lack of financial education in traditional school systems. This led her and her husband to embark on a mission to provide practical knowledge and support to young entrepreneurs. They started by nurturing their own children’s entrepreneurial interests, and soon realized the potential to be a catalyst for many more young minds seeking financial empowerment.


Their tireless efforts have yielded incredible results. From launching businesses and earning impressive incomes, to buying homes and making headlines, the impact of Sherri’s work is undeniable. And it’s not just about the financial success – it’s about the personal growth, the collaboration among siblings, and the development of essential skills that will benefit these young entrepreneurs for a lifetime.


I invite you to listen to my interview with Sherri Jones on “Out & About with Antionette.” Gain insights into her journey, her approach to nurturing young entrepreneurs, and the amazing success stories that have emerged through the Youth in Business program.

  1. The importance of cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset in the youth cannot be overstated. In a rapidly changing world where traditional job roles are evolving, and some are even disappearing, having the ability to think outside the box, take risks, and create value is paramount. Your post beautifully captures this essence.

    One of the standout points for me was the emphasis on failure as a stepping stone rather than an endpoint. Many times, our educational systems and societal norms condition us to fear failure, making us apprehensive about taking risks. By reframing failure as a learning opportunity and a part of the growth process, we can instill resilience and adaptability in young minds.

    I also appreciate the mention of mentorship in your article. Having a guiding figure or a mentor can make all the difference in the world for budding entrepreneurs. They not only provide valuable insights from their experiences but also offer moral support during challenging times. I remember when I started my first venture; my mentor was instrumental in helping me navigate the highs and lows of the entrepreneurial journey.

    Lastly, the idea of community involvement and the role of parents in nurturing entrepreneurial spirits is spot on. Entrepreneurship isn’t just about making money; it’s about solving problems and adding value to the community. When parents and communities support and encourage young minds to think in terms of solutions rather than problems, we are setting the stage for a brighter and more innovative future.

    Thank you for shedding light on such an important topic. I believe articles like these can spark conversations and bring about positive change. Looking forward to reading more insightful pieces from your team!

    Warm regards,
