Recommended Reading for Young Entrepreneurs

May 20, 2012View for printing

There are tons of books that promise to help people become entrepreneurs--but most of them are targeted at adults. What about the many kids and teenagers itching to start a business? We asked some experts on kids and business for their top picks to get youngsters started.

Steve Mariotti, founder of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, a group that's dedicated to getting low-income kids interested in business, recommends "Teen Business Blasts Off!" by Andrea Davis Pinkney and Amy Rosen. The book, a companion to a documentary film, focuses on how a group of teens started their ventures and handled things like business plans and presentations. The stories show kids that their peers have done it and so can they, Mr. Mariotti says. (He adds that the movie is worth watching, too.)
