Have you ever come up with a really great idea for making money, but then not been sure what to do with it? There are many great opportunities out there for anyone (including you and your family!) to start a business and make some money. Come find out the elements that you need for a successful business, big or small. We’ll talk about specific things you need to do in order to start your own business. Learn how to capitalize on your strengths and talents, starting a business that lets you work effectively and realistically. In addition, we will talk specifically about incorporating entrepreneurship into your homeschool. Running a business together as a family can strengthen family relationships, instill character, and build teamwork. But it is not without cost as you juggle the stress, workload, and demands on your time and resources. Since our sons started their first business over a decade ago, we have ventured into all kinds of different undertakings, some successful and some not so successful. We’ll share with you what we have learned, and walk you through the basics of what to do to get up and running on your own business.
Kami Huntzinger lives in North Logan, Utah, with her husband and five children. She has been homeschooling for over twenty years. Each child has been a different and unique adventure, and that has been one of her favorite things about homeschooling. She and her family love to travel all over the world. They run Bees Brothers, a crazy science experiment that turned into a small honey business, in order to finance their hobbies. Kami has a degree in biology and chemistry and worked in science research before starting her family. She is serving as the LDSHE Youth Conference Director this year.
