Want To Inspire The Next Generation? You Need To Watch This...
Have you heard about the 13-year-old the City cleared to sell hot dogs? Jaequan Faulkner’s stand at 1510 Penn Ave N is officially permitted. He plans to take his food stand on the road to serve customers at places like the 4th Precinct. Our cops stopped by to support the cause. pic.twitter.com/S6ePP6VRlZ

The latest news with a dose of wisdom...
By Sukh Singh, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International
Compare your average 13-year-old to your average 31-year old... what do you think is one of the biggest differences?
OK, so the 31-year-old will be a fair bit taller.
But aside from that, there's a much stronger chance that the 13-year-old still has that zest, that spark, that hunger and desire to play, to learn, to give to others and enjoy life.
So if we want to inspire and encourage kids to keep hold of that spark... then we can't just tell them to! We have to BE the example for them! We need to embody that joy, that love, that spark and zest for life...
What kids need more than anything is real examples who they can look up to, talk to, question and feel supported, loved and cared for.
Here's a great example of this... 13 year-old Jaequan Faulkner trying his best to add value to his local community, and rather than shutting him down in the name of 'rules and regulations', some wise, loving adults at the Minneapolis Health Department and Police Department took it upon themselves to not only let him build a mini-business but actually invest in him too!

I want to make the most of my life and help others make the most of theirs. For the last 8 years I have been developing myself intensively with support of an amazing mentorship community at Lighthouse International and our non-profit organisation, Lighthouse Kidz. I am learning and appreciating more and more the importance of meaningful, trust-filled, character rich relationships with people – not just connections. These kinds of relationships completely revolutionise organisations, industries and change families and individuals’ lives.
