Author of the Alfie Potts the Schoolboy Entrepreneur books. Life lessons kids don't get in school
After losing my business in 2008 I went on a mission of learning and personal development to find out what went wrong. I went to seminars, did courses, spoke to wealthy people, and read blogs and books on wealth creation, business, and prosperity consciousness such as those written by Randy Gage and Catherine Ponder, to name just a couple.
Realising I would actually have been better off learning this stuff when I was much younger than 45 and broke, I decided to find a way to teach the things I'd learned to children.
After a little thought I came up with the idea for a children's books series about a 12 year old boy who, with the help of his dad, becomes an entrepreneur. My thinking was that through Alfie's entrepreneurial endeavours and his dad's teaching, I could pass on my new found wisdom to children before they were programmed for mediocrity by 'well meaning' family members, the media, and the world we live in.
