Online video has enabled people world wide to share what they are good at. Not just with descriptive words, but with the actual movements and sounds. The love and passion that someone has for their sport or art shows through the video and inspires others.
This past summer my 9 year old daughter wanted to learn how to cartwheel. I haven’t done a cartwheel in years and wasn’t an expert at them to start with so guess what we did…watched a video online showing how to cartwheel. Then, of course, we got sucked into watching how to flip, then some gymnasts, a competition….ah-em.
My daughter went outside every day and practiced doing cartwheels. At first she was really bad, but she stuck with it and now does a pretty good cartwheel. She learned it completely by herself with a little help from the internet.
In the following video the Fios Football Girl schooled herself all about the game of football with the help of the internet.
My daughter loves online video. She already has asked to have her own email and blog. She uses a pocket camcorder to make videos and asks me questions about my business. Someday she wants to have her own business.
With the internet she could start earning money at an early age. Is it easy? No. It’s hard work. Is it worth it? Totally. I actually have options for ways that I can earn money while being home and homeschooling my children. I can show her that there is an online world of possibilities for whatever talent or passion she has. It’s more effective to use a video than to just tell her that it can be done; by seeing someone else do it she knows for sure it is possible and has been done. If she applies the same determination to building a business as she did with learning to cartwheel I’m sure she’ll be successful.
What do you want to enable your daughter to do? What do you want to show her the possibilities of? You can find information and others with experience online.
