About the Author

Troy Dunn is a self-made millionaire. He is a successful businessman and public speaker, radio host, and writer on the subject of financial success and personal happiness. For his business venture dedicated to reuniting separated friends and family, Troy was considered for more than a decade one of the most frequently seen guest experts on national television. After thirteen years of building and running that company, Troy sold it for undisclosed millions, freeing him to focus on his passion for assisting other organizations. He now consults four corporate clients a year in motivating their own management teams in leadership, overcoming obstacles, team-building, and guerrilla marketing and in major media manipulation, strategy, and results. Troy married his high-school sweetheart, Jennifer, and together they are raising seven beautiful children.

Every Parent MUST READ THIS!!!
Who Dean E.
Money is tight for us, but I also want the kids to have great work ethic and to be aware of their spending habits as well.

This book is an excellent place to start for anyone that wants more for their children (& themselves).

I enjoyed this book and agreed with the principal of teaching your children to be enterprising, not just eventually "get a job", or worse, provide everything they wish. My husband is self-employed. He and his siblings were very entraprenurial as kids and they have all become successful in their ventures as adults.

A few things I think need mentioning. First, not all people are entrapreneur material. And people who are often are without any overt help from their parents. Some kids are leaders, others not. Second, don't underestimate the amount of effort it takes for a parent to set their child up in a business, unless your child is already a teenager. My son, age 8, is eager to sell candy bars, one of the businesses Dunn lists in this book. But the majority of the legwork has to be done by MOM. It's not hard to see why one might rather give them an allowance.

This book is not thorough. Three chapters were business ideas, which made me wonder why break them into chapters. Dunn does not go into depth on spending money effectively, which is a major part of how wealthy you actually become. Also, Dunn mentions a website for young entrapreneurs, but when I looked it up, there was nothing there except a place to enter my e-mail addy. Maybe I need to look at it again, but I was mystified when I tried to find it.

My only other small peeve is the wording of the sub-title. Why not, "How to raise enterprising, money-smart kids" or something similar. The money is not the thing. If I hadn't seen Troy Dunn on tv, I probably wouldn't have picked the book, seeing the sub-title.

Overall, not a bad book, but not my favorite on the subject. "The Millionaire Mind" and "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" are better.

It helped remind me of the most important job I have, which is as a father. I truly enjoyed the book and it has motivated me even more about my role as a parent. It has some funny stories much like other Troy Dunn books and CDs. My kids have already started to planning a little for the future then just looking at today.

Is raising your kid to be a millionaire the best goal? I am also a self made millionaire and agree with the premise that you need to raise your kids to be entrepreneurial. The pursuit of the money should not be the goal.

The critical skills that you learn by being self employed are life changing-however, be careful about stressing the money part. Money can be a byproduct of the effort it takes to operate your own business-but the real satisfaction comes from being able to be your own boss. Not working for the MAN is worth a lot. Self determination is worth a lot. But the tightrope that you walk as an entrepreneur is not for everyone. The American government's tax policy doesn't make it any easier!

Teach your kids how to handle failure. Teach them how to take calculated risks with career and money. Success comes to those that work smart and hard, not just hard.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books I have read on how to encourage the young entrepreneur in your family. Troy Dunn should know because six of his seven children are entrepreneurs! The youngest is making $85 per hour baking and selling cookies at soccer games. Troy outlines specific steps for each age group and gives some examples of businesses kids can try. Even though the sub-title is "how to raise a future millionaire", Troy stresses it is not all about the money. He wants kids to experience the excitement of using their natural talents and the fun of being the boss.

While its difficult to teach young children about money since there are issues with counting as well as the value associated with different coins and bills this book is a big help. It makes it easier to help the child identify what they want and then devise a plan on how to get there. No matter what the age this is an important concept. Start with an end in mind and work backwards. Hmmm, I think alot of the adults buying this book could implement the concepts along side the kids. I have found it is a good way to find projects to work on with the kids that they actually care about. the simplicity of the concepts makes it easy to use them in everyday life. I think this is a must read for all parents. Thanks

My grandson put me onto this book. Good choice. It inspired me into action. See "b00hfkpilo" and you'll see why one good book can make a REAL DIFFERENCE.

While it's true that there are parents who try to give there kids everything, and have the mentality to not let their kids work for their allowance, that is not necessarily true for the already poor and struggling families. Poorer families do try to give to their kids, but really, in a poor family, kids who go out and do yard work for a neighbor, are already helping to pay the house phone bills. Unlike this guy, whose kids work, make money selling cookies or something, and use it to buy new shoes for themselves. Yes, although he is rich and doesn't buy anything beyond basic needs for his children, his children aren't already helping to pay the bills at such a young age either. Those who can benefit from this book, are those who try to give their kids everything, or discourage their kids from natural talents, such as art, because as a working class family, they don't see the potential money making practicality in it.
