Does your child have a uniquely creative spirit or a knack for coming up with innovative moneymaking ideas? Listen in on the discussion as guest Adam Reid shares his approach to facilitating youth startup businesses, while enlightening listeners on the many reasons why he believes it’s never too early to begin cultivating your child’s inner entrepreneur.
Generally unengaged and disenchanted with his High School experience, Adam Reid launched his first business – a music production studio out of his home garage – at the age of fifteen. He went on to earn his B.A. from Portland State University and his Masters degree from Stanford University, and then helped to facilitate the launch of the Ethos, Inc., a nonprofit multicultural music center that brings music education to underserved youth and communities. He is the Co-Founder of Leadership and Entrepreneurship (LEP) Public Charter High School in Portland, Oregon, where he currently lives and serves as Impact NW LEP Expansion Director.
