Raising a Speaker
When it comes to nurturing the dreams of child there are many who would give a side-eye to the child wanting to become a professional speaker. Hey, we heard how Steve Harvey talked about getting in trouble in school for saying that he wanted to be on T.V. It was his father that inspired him to write whatever the teacher wanted to see on the paper but to still go after his dream. (We see how that worked out right?)
After reading about Himanshu Garg being named the youngest fitness influencer and speaker in his country it sparked some inner joy. I know of a youth that is even younger here in the United States that are speakers and authors. It warms my heart when children are influenced to follow their dream and supported by their parents. Himanshu even attributed his success to the involvement of his parents in the original article on The Asian Age website.

So, how do you support your child’s dream of being a motivational speaker? How do you give them the necessary tools for them to stand on their own in the speaking industry?
