Also, my wife and I are often looking for creative gifts for the girls. We have gotten past giving "stuff" and have been trying to find more experiences and one-of-a-kind gifts for them.
There are these guys who run a cool website, YourComicStory.com, where they make custom comic books for birthdays, anniversaries, wedding invitations and more. You create the story and send them the pics and they create your comic. Creative gift, right?
Well, get this. If your kid has that entrepreneurial spirit, these same guys have started a KickStarter campaign for an educational comic book for business-minded kids, called "My First Startup", and I can't wait for it to be available for young people. Please check it out so you can see what they've conjured up.
It's not available just yet. They are about halfway to their KickStarter goal. If you like what you see, consider contributing to their campaign. And, this is where the "killing two birds" part comes in. Not only will you help get this comic book off the ground that can help thousands of children reach their startup potentials, but depending upon the amount you contribute, you can grab some incredible one-of-a-kind gifts for your entrepreneurial kid (bird number two):
• an entrepreneurial toolkit including services from partners like Shopify, Instapage and Shippo
• a fifteen-minute Skype call with the creators of the comic
• a professional comic book style super hero poster of your child
• a lunch meeting for your young business person with an entrepreneur
• a made-from-scratch comic book that you and your youngster can help create
• having your child as one of the characters in the final "My First Startup" comic
If your kid loves business, if your kid is drawn to comics and superheroes, and if you are looking for unique gifts, check out this campaign and consider making this idea into a reality.
