Kiddo-Preneur Christmas Bazaar 2014: Learning Entrepreneurship at an Early Age

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Bigger and better, the Kiddo-preneur event had just concluded a well-accepted Christmas bazaar flocked by thousands of buyers from all over the Metro. Most buyers were fascinated and curious seeing children as the primary sellers of numerous products ranging from all-time favorites like ice creams and shakes to fancy printed shirts and glittery accessories. Guided by their parents and/or guardians, these kids were naturally eager to show off their products and interact with their customers like it was more than just play time.

I attended the summer run of the Kiddo-preneur event held by the same organizers a few months ago at Robinsons Place in Manila, and I could say that the event held this November, a few weeks away from Christmas,  was a stunning success for engaging a lot more young entrepreneurs in participating in a very educational and worthwhile event. I saw many of the same faces have returned to compete again for some recognition, or maybe just to have fun exploring how it is to be in business earning their own money at a very young age between 5 to 17 when most kids will just spend their time checking on their social media accounts or playing with their game consoles or tablets.

The whole day event held at the Glorietta Activity Center, Palm Drive in Makati last November 23, 2014 teaches the "kiddos" the value of earning the hard-earned money. It primarily focuses on four learning motivations on how to earn, save, invest and donate. The principle of donating is an admirable activity  added to the event as it teaches the kids to recognize charitable institutions and advocacy programs as a way of giving back to the community.

Husband and wife lead organizers Maiki and Quinto Oreta encourages children to learn the different processes of setting up a business, and to appreciate the effort given in personally managing it.

The event also teaches kids that the Christmas season is not just a time to spend but also the right time to earn. It is actually the best time to invest and earn big since majority of the people are already looking for the right items to serve as their Christmas gifts to either themselves or their loved ones. It is that time of the year when people are more generous in spending more for the people that they consider significant in their lives.

The parents are equally grateful to have been given an opportunity to bond with their children as they plan for the business they would setup in the bazaar. Nothing beats having quality time with your children while learning valuable lessons in life.

Even kids still studying can spend their summer or Christmas break doing more beneficial activities rather than just going to the traditional routine during their vacation time. It's high time everyone learns entrepreneurship as early as possible as this will bring forth a more positive effect on our economy.





Congratulations to the organizers of the Kiddo-preneur Christmas Bazaar, and most especially to all the children, and parents, who participated in the event especially to the grand winners who have been awarded with recognitions like Highest Sales, Best Concept, Best Service, and Best Booth. We hope to see you all again next year!
