I am Jay. I am the founder of KIDZCORP that teaches kids basic principles of business and how to start their own. I am also a Sunday School teacher for 8 years now and I am also running few of my businesses.
In my years in teaching kids, I realized that many of them are not exposed to business which I believe is an important key in their future if we want them to be financially successful.
I myself started my own business venture when I was 8 years old.
I can still remember very clearly my first experience of selling ice cream on stick when I was a kid as if it was just yesterday.
That first day, I earned my very precious Php 40 (almost $1).
It was that experience, though it was tiring, marked my most unforgettable experience.
Unaware of it, it was the experience that opened my mind to the possibilities of making money.
A different way compared to my parents.
That time, my father was a tricycle driver and my mom a housewife.
I continued my venture in business by selling candies in school competing against my teacher who reprimanded me to do so. But that did not stop me.
I sold toys, candies, biscuits, paper, pencil and a lot more. In elementary, in high school, in college and even as I was working as a Mechanical Engineer in a Japanese Company.
In 2015, at the age of 24, I resigned from my Engineering job to start my own company.
I never regret it since then.
It all started that day when I took a step into my first ever business venture, selling ice cream on stick.
All along I thought I was alone doing this as a kid. Until I realized that most of the successful businessmen and women, here and abroad started their journey between 6 to 12 years old.

What Our Parents Have to Say
Really useful! It taught me to utilize everything to teach my kid to be responsible in handling money while enjoying the things they love. As early as now, they can learn to be entrepreneurs and help others.
Learned to intentionally influence them. Kasi it's really for them din for their future.
I hope parents do take action to lead their kids along this path.
Thank you so much for new learning. For giving us idea on how to instill the value of financial literacy by being an entrepreneur as early as now.
