The Maverick 4th of July Family Freedom Celebration

Kidpreneurs is all about giving kids the opportunity to learn about and express their entrepreneurial spirit. Of course as kids aren’t 100% self-sufficient, their entrepreneurial pursuits often become a family affair – and we think that is fantastic! What better way to bring a family closer than by supporting each other to reach the dream of business ownership?
So when we were asked to present a group of powerful, educational sessions at the upcoming Family Freedom Celebration, hosted by Yanik Silver of Maverick Business Adventures, on July 4th weekend, we couldn’t have been more excited! Not only is this one-of-a-kind event going to be an outstanding opportunity for families to bond in the spirit of entrepreneurship and freedom, it’s also going to be a blast! Because this is a Maverick event, there is a perfect mix of learning and adventure for everyone involved.

Maverick 4th of July Freedom Celebration

We’re getting together in Park City, Utah on Wednesday, July 1st, and the fun and adventure last until Tuesday, July 5th. If you remember, Utah was host to the Winter Olympic Games in 2002, and the training and competition facilities from the games are still there and available for use. It’s not happening in winter, but you don’t need snow to enjoy unforgettable, exhilarating experiences like Summer Comet Bobsled rides at 70+ miles per hour, the Quicksilver steel alpine slide, and the world’s steepest zip-line, which will take you on an incredible ride, at speeds up to 50 miles per hour!
In addition to the adventure side of the event, there is, of course, a focus on entrepreneurship. On day two, we will be speaking to Kidpreneurs between six and twelve years old with an introduction to entrepreneurship and business thinking. This is something we love to do, more than just about anything. There’s such amazing opportunity in business ownership, both from a personal standpoint as well as financially, and today’s schools simply don’t prepare kids for the excitement and challenge of becoming entrepreneurs. So we’re really looking forward to helping these lucky young entrepreneurs get started on their entrepreneurial journeys the right way.
There are also incredible sessions planned for the older kids (13+), and for the parents, you’ll experience sessions presented by the likes of Richard Eyre, the bestselling author of Teaching Your Children Values, the first parenting book in fifty years to reach #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Richard is speaking in a session entitled “Avoiding the Entitlement Trap with Your Children,” and it promises to be very enlightening.
There truly is something spectacular planned for every member of the family at this year’s Maverick 4th of July Family Freedom Celebration. We hope you’ll bring your family to join us for this long weekend of fun, excitement, and learning. Your entire family is sure to experience an adventure you’ll never forget!
