I think one of the most important things to teach young people is how they look at money.
I bought into the "hourly wage" paradigm for much of my young life. Always trying to figure out what I could make "per hour". It's a loser's game.
I think what young people need to be taught is that you provide value first, you show up on time, and you do what you say you are going to do. Take the experience first and the money will naturally come later.
If you must ask the question "how do I make money" it must be followed with "by making someone's life better". The question is always who, what, and how......and life (generally).....provides plenty of time to figure that out.
