Kids as entrepreneurs and inspiration

This inspiring story comes to us from Australia.

Patrick, an 8 year old has is an inspiration behind a first aid course for children, www.firstaidforyou.com.au. His Mom,  Mary, runs a first aid educational company and Patrick, like most children always held a keen interest in what his mom was doing on a day-to-day basis.

One day, Patrick asked his mom if he could learn first aid skills, to help his friends. Consequently, Mary – with much input from Patrick created the First Aid For You, Kids First Aid Workshop. 

The whole idea (of a kids first aid course) came about from Patrick’s questioning, as a toddler, Patrick saw me demonstrate on CPR dolls and instruct courses, he genuinely wanted to create a course for himself and his friends so they cou ld learn to help others in an emergency situation,” says Mary. 

I think it’s a useful skill to have and if you’re helping people, that’s always a good thing,” says Patrick. 

I’ve learnt how to bandage a friend who is bleeding, call 000, know what to do when someone is bitten by a snake and spider!, learn when you need CPR or what to do when you can’t wake your friend up and think that’s cool that I do that now, if my friends get hurt, I know what to do,” adds Patrick. 

Moral of the story – share what you do with your children. Listen to them. Ask for their feedback. You may have an aspiring child entrepreneur and business partner living in your very home.
