Future Business Leaders’ series introduces concepts of entrepreneurialism.

In today’s global marketplace of extreme competition

Atlanta-based Bouje Publishing introduced Book 1 of the Future Business Leaders’ Series: "Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine" at Book Expo America May 19 in Washington, D.C. "Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine," written by Atlanta resident Jennifer Bouani, is a children’s fantasy story introducing the concepts of entrepreneurialism to kids ages 9 to 12. Bouani, a first-time author, signed books for event attendees.

"Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine" is about an orphan named Tyler who invents a machine to help him do his homework and creates a business to manufacture this machine. He must endure many tests set out for him by the Great Spirit of the Entrepreneurs, Soté, before he can officially become a successful business owner and realize his dream of sailing around the world. These tests are symbolic of obstacles encountered by adult entrepreneurs in the real world. The allegory teaches children ages 9 to 12 business concepts in a simple yet adventurous way, showing them how to participate in, and reap the rewards of, our capitalist society.

“In today’s global marketplace of extreme competition,” said Bouani, “I believe it is more critical than ever that children learn early the principles of free market trade and how to become leaders in a capitalist society.”

This story appeals to kids because it arouses their senses as the main characters perform adventurous tasks and solve challenging, play-on-word riddles. It appeals to parents and teachers because it can be used as a teaching tool for entrepreneurialism, capitalism, networking, and free trade.

“This is a great introduction to the concept of what being an entrepreneur is all about,” said John Walter Drake, senior partner at the law firm of McCurdy & Candler and a successful Atlanta-based entrepreneur himself. “It’s an imaginative and fun book for the bright young reader.”
