Our Dinosaur Site

Written by George Manty  · March 28, 2006

I have this new deal with my 12 year old son Matthew who helped create our dinosaur site. From now on, we are taking 40% of the profit and putting it into savings for his college fund and then 10% of the profit is going to his spending money. That could be a good chunk of change. For instance this month he will probably be getting around 30 dollars of spending money from the site.

In exchange, he is creating at least one new dinosaur fact page a month for the site. Last night, I put up his newest one about the Oviraptor. We still need to find/buy an Oviraptor picture for the page, but otherwise that page is done.

This is good both to help him with his writing and researching skills and to help us add content to the site, which ultimately will bring more people to the site.

I plan on doing this same thing with each of my kids when they get older:

1. Let them pick something they are really interested in writing about.
2. Start up a site for them.
3. Help them put together the site, monetize it, and promote it.
4. Let them write articles for the site.
5. Give them a big percentage of the profits.

You could do that with your kids too (if you have any).

One of the reasons, I really want to do this is to teach my children how to be entrepreneurs. Which is not a skill you learn in school, it’s something you probably learn best by doing.

Anyway, that’s it for now…
