    It’s amazing the way even young entrepreneurs want to help others of all ages to succeed. Kid’s are evolving faster these days, and age doesn’t matter anymore as the playing field has been leveled with today’s technology. All that really counts is Knowledge, the more knowledge you have the more power.
    The Use of Knowledge is Power.

    Great initiative. I recently spoke to more than 100 “summer entrepreneurs” (age 15 – 20) about social media and personal branding. The other speakers had great talks on guerilla marketing, business etiquette and social networking “in real life”. You could read about the concept in my blog post, Summer Entrepreneur.

    Sorry for typo. It should be guerrilla marketing. By the way: I like the name of Intuit’s site: Small Business Town Hall! 🙂

  5. Missed the “Cram Session” but hope to hear more of how it went. Young entrpreneurs tend to have fresh ideas that sometimes we could all learn from.
