Little boy in the dragon's den

From Rowan Manahan's blog, here's a fantastic video of a young man (9 years old, to be exact), pitching his business idea to the Dragon's Den (a group of investors on a BBC reality tv show), in hopes of winning £5,000.

He's prepared. He has a great opening and closing. He takes questions. He tells a story. He's assertive. He doesn't fill the time with nervous chatter or apologies. He handles adversity gracefully. He even demonstrates a talent. And yet, he doesn't come across as slick or mechanical.

This kid's got quite a future ahead of him!

Go here if you can't see the video.
