Trenton Youth Learn The Art of Business From Magician

LAWRENCE-- Local students from Trenton area schools learn the fundamentals of business and entrepreneurship from magician during Rider University's summer program Minding Our Business (MOB). Thursday afternoon, around 30 students from Hedgepeth Williams, Trenton Charter, Dunn, and other schools came together as magician and motivational speaker Frank Kennedy shared his tricks and pearls of wisdom.

From reaching your potential to doing what you love and using your imagination, Kennedy made entrepreneurship come alive to these youngsters with his magic. During his presentation, Kennedy said that despite what  conventional wisdom says,  money can grow on trees. Students in the audience saw his point and said that money does indeed grow on trees because there are many people out there that can and do make money by selling fruits that grow on trees or by selling paper, which comes from trees.

During the 14 day summer program, MOB students take part in coaching sessions, entrepreneurship classes, book club meetings, and math groups with the purpose of training Trenton youth to be tomorrow's business leaders. The program has been in existence for 15 years and is run by Dr. Sigfredo Hernandez, MOB's founder and director.
