Welcome to installment two of our Journey Through the Code with the The Kingdom Code . This is the week my son had been waiting for, he could pick his business and get started. I loved that it was only lesson two and he was already getting started. Some programs want to teach them everything before they get started but they can easily get bored or frustrated. By only waiting until lesson 2, he was excited and motivated.

Key to the Lesson: “In a free enterprise system, I can build a better business if I seek wisdom.”
In this lesson he learned about capitalism and free enterprise. We discussed various ways that businesses can be competitive and what freedoms are enjoyed by the owners of private businesses. We discussed various business opportunities and what each one of them would involve, the difficulties that would need to be overcome, and which one would work best for our family. He created a city featuring various service businesses out of Legos and then he chose his own business. Once he had chosen, he filled out the Treasure Builder Permit which was an agreement between the child and parents about the business that would be started. I loved how formal and official this made the business feel for my son.
He was learning to seek wisdom from the Bible and from trusted mentors, the value and benefit of entrepreneurship and free enterprise, and how to analyze the potential benefits and challenges of various opportunities. My son choose to open his own grass cutting and lawn care business as a way to best utilize his time and talents.
