Not a lot of people know this but I wrote, illustrated and published my first piece of work At 14 years old in 2005 with DORRANCE PUBLISHING COMPANY. I remember getting a letter of interest and how my mind changed once I saw my name on something in the world . Owner of something real. Seller of words and rhymes that came from my mind. My old high school bought a box of them as let me sell it at graduation. My first time ever being a vendor at 17 and I sold out and got the check for book sales on top of that to use for my first year of college. Reading my old bio from the time is so strange how I went from wanting a career I thought would just make money to MAKING MONEY AND TURNING MY HOBBY INTO MY CAREER! (Sidenote: Neurologist? Lmao I barely made it through 1st level chemistry hahahaha) but this book isn't just a book to me it's the beginning of when I stopped accepting traditional THOUGHT and started to make my own way with something that belonged to ME! I love my family most of all for instilling in me that I could own something from a young age and showing me how to work hard and with higher purpose.
Goal #1 for ME IN 2018: Push my books more !
Suggested goal for YOU: Do what you love more until it makes money, and TEACH YOUR KIDS TO DO THE SAME!
