Powerful, dynamic CEOs aren't born that way; they are carefully nurtured and sculpted. Even the Jack Welches and Bill Gates' of the world were once just motivated kids looking for the tools they needed to fulfill their dreams and turn their ideas into reality. Too often, adults dismiss the natural skills and "out-of-the-box" business ideas of youth, simply because of the entrepreneur's age. America needs to stop and take note of these up-and-coming business titans and give them the encouragement and training they need to rise to their full potential.
In 1976, 16-year-old Steve Jobs, along with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, founded Apple Computer in Jobs' parents' garage. That collaboration would eventually launch the Macintosh computer, iTunes, the iPod, the iPad and other devices that have become all, but essential to the way we live. In 2005, People magazine called Jobs the "Father of the Digital Age."
More recently, Mark Zuckerberg was just 19 years old when he launched what would become Facebook in his Harvard University dorm room in 2003. By age 23, Zuckerberg was a billionaire and named by Time magazine as one of the wealthiest and most influential men in the world. His creation now helps more than one billion individuals and businesses interact with one another and has changed the way the world communicates.
Encouraging the next generation of business leaders has never been more important. As business becomes more global - and more competitive - we need the best and brightest minds at work for America. That means encouraging the dreams of our young men and women and making the tools they need to succeed available to them. Parents, teachers and business professionals all need to do their part.
