Parents are complaining that their children aren’t “entrepreneurial enough” (I can just see the conversation: “son, what’s that lemonaide stands competitive advantage? Who’s your target market? What’s your wireless strategy?”). PTA bake sales involve discussions of databases. Going to Fry’s is seen as a family outing. It’s only funny until you realize that you’re living it.
