PBS Show Biz Kid$ getting youth interested in eBay!

I spent this weekend filming for a new TV show on PBS called Biz Kid$. From the producers of the famous kids educational show Bill Nye The Science Guy, Biz Kid$ is targeted at kids ages 8-11, but instead of teaching lessons about science, the show gets kids interested in starting up their own businesses.

Beyond the fact that it was my first national television appearance, I thought the experience was awesome! How cool is it that more and more people are beginning to see the big picture… that our education system isn’t preparing students for anything but a corporate job. With all the changes going on in the world, people of all ages need to be armed with the knowledge to provide for themselves.

PBS asked me to take part in this segment because I started my eBay business at the age of 20, launching myself into all sorts of different opportunities. But more so, what better thing to teach young kids about business than selling on eBay?!

eBay is perfect for beginners in business because you can experiment and learn the ropes without making a huge commitment or spending a year of your life researching your market, customers don’t know your age or background, and there is very low start-up capital needed.

The show should be very cool, check it out on PBS this Fall!

Corey Kossack is one of eBay’s “top sellers” through his eBay store, Koss DVD. He is also author of eBay Millionaire or Bust and creator of ProfitBuilder software that maximizes profits for eBay sellers.
