Happy parents

Don't just take our word for it – our parents frequently stay in touch with us and update us on their child's progress.

We absolutely love being a part of the Biz Kidz Expo! We have done a few events, and each time it gets bigger and better. The kids have learned SO much! I would highly recommend enrolling any young, creative minds to learn entrepreneurship from people who truly care!!

My kids participated in one of the events Biz Kidz Markets in 2023 for the first time and although nervous at first we're very happy with their experience. JD did a great job making them feel comfortable, giving them advice, and boosting their self-confidence. The kids did a great job learning new customer service skills, budgeting, and financial skills, further enhancing their communication skills. My kids really did have a great sense of accomplishment and renewed confidence thanks to the opportunity given by Biz Kids Market.
