Sue Scheff: Bitten By The Business Bug - Teen Entrepreneur

"Bitten by the Business Bug: Common Sense Tips for Business and Life from a Teen Entrepreneur" is a practical approach to business and life with straightforward tips for kids and adults alike. It is the complete opposite to the negative, self-serving attitude of government and the corporate world that has been so prevalent in recent years. Success comes in many forms and is defined in many ways. Regardless of age, achieving success is not brain surgery or rocket science. It does not have to be complicated. Sometimes it just means simplifying things, getting back to the basics, and taking one step at a time.

At age nine, Jason O'Neill did not set out to become an entrepreneur but when an opportunity arose to make and sell a product for a craft fair, he jumped on it and Pencil Bugs were quickly born. As soon as Jason established his business, he realized the importance of giving back to his community. He continues to donate a portion of his proceeds to help other kids. Now fourteen, Jason has achieved what many people only dream of. Through short personal stories, Jason shares his values, creativity, strategies, and advice for those who have wondered, "Can I do it?" Whether you are a young entrepreneur, a high-level executive, or a parent looking for ideas to share with your family, this book is filled with many "ah-ha" moments. Doing nothing guarantees nothing. "Bitten by the Business Bug" is sure to inspire and motivate readers of any age. Try your ideas! You might surprise yourself.
