Youth Entrepreneurship - Nature, Nurture or a necessary skill set?

Raising young entrepreneurs - does it come naturally, is it nurtured, is it a family-valued life skill that is developed, or what combination? Hear from parents of young entrepreneurs who have sons or daughters who have successfully created multi-million dollar businesses, appeared on Shark Tank, appeared (youngest) on the cover of Entrepreneur magazine, and have services and products available all across the United States. Hear from these parents on their experiences and viewpoints on this important topic.
