Where is the opportunity for young people today? Did you know the debt and promises guaranteed by the US Government is equal to 54 trillion dollars? That's three times the amount of total dollars on the planet. The primary purpose of Young Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow is to provide young people with the opportunity to learn what it means and what it takes to be an entrepreneur. To develop an entrepreneur attitude is to succeed. Socioeconomic advisors say you'll have eight to ten jobs and three to fix different professions in your lifetime.

Young people who sign up for the foundation's program will be provided with books on business and leadership.
They will be required to prepare a written report and an oral presentation on the subject of the books.
Upon completion of the report and presentation, a sum of money will be made available to the students to pay for college courses related to: Accounting, Economics, and other business-related subjects. This may also be used for starting a business.
The foundation will have no interest in any business in which any of its participating students has an interest.
The foundation will also provide coaching and mentoring to students as they move forward with their education and careers.
Here is a sample of a few books that might be included in the book list the students are given
The 21 irrefutable Laws of Leadership
The Magic of Thinking Big
The Richest Man in Babylon

"Many entrepreneurs accomplish what they do because they believe in their ideas. They are able to trust in themselves when others have doubt. This is a big contributor to success."
