In English there are a number of websites designed specifically to teaching personal and family finances (read for example Create your own family bank Famous and teach your children how to save money and finances or even All children should know business and how to make money in a box).

I remember I was about 26 when I had the idea of starting a business, I prepared and launched an innovative idea of video store we drove with my girlfriend, who is now my wife. All was well in the business, I continued working during the day while my girlfriend was attending on the day and after work I helped him.

I know you may be thinking of you reading this article because I went through the same thing you are going through. I was scared, almost paralyzed me the idea of retiring from my job and leave a stability that allowed the money to take home. Every year I ever had in my years starting purposes, the same, “this year I will start my own business,” but each year got my courage up and faded faded as increasing a couple of months after I issued.
