I’m so happy to introduce a fellow teenpreneur to you today. Sade´ has an amazing heart for others and she is turning that passion into a business. She is really good at math and loves it (where were you when I needed you Sade´!) and wants to help other students do well in math. When she decided to start a tutoring business she saved her money, built her own website and just launched recently. I’m so glad to have the opportunity to meet so many teenpreneurs from around the country and I can’t wait to meet Sade in person this June at The Teenpreneur Conference! Here’s her story:
Hello everyone, my name is Sade´ Ried and this is my phenomenal story of how I’ve grown to become an entrepreneur and speaker.
My entire life I’ve always been the type of kid to make my own money; my family regularly called me the “hustler.” As I got older I started to realize how far my hustling potential could take me. I have a great father in my life who has high expectations for me and who purchases me lots of books relating to entrepreneurship. Those success stories motivated me to get interested in business.
Not only did my father buy me tons of books but, in addition, my mentor at school let me borrow a few books as well. “Act Like A Success, Think Like A Success” by Steve Harvey, was one of the best books I’ve ever read. This book gave me the tools and the mindset to become an entrepreneur. It explains how to set goals and not waste your time because once you waste your time, there’s no getting it back. A few other books I’ve read that were huge influences are, “Crush It” by Gary Vaynerchuk and “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. Those books gave me the insight of others success.
After, reading so many books and hearing how others became successful, I learned that most businesses come to be based on what people love to do, or typically what they are good at. I am good at many things but what I really love to do is math and problem solving. Noticing so many discouraged kids in my math class is what gave me the desire to help kids become great in math.
Determined to help other kids in my community, I came up with a solution to start my own math tutoring business. Coming from a family with not much money (but enough to make ends meet) plays a big role in my dreams and aspirations. I did not let the absence of finances hinder me from believing in my dreams. I worked very hard at school and at home to earn money so I can pay for things beneficial to my business such as pencils, paper, rulers, etc. Soon after, I was able to purchase my domain name and hosting. I began by creating my very own website for my business and am really proud of what I was able to do on my own.
“Math Sade’s Way” is my very own math tutoring business, designed to help kids understand math easier and changing their way of thinking.
I’m certainly looking forward to attending an event like The Teenpreneur Conference. This is a great opportunity for me to meet other teenage entrepreneurs and to share my story.
