Introduced Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine to the City of Decatur, GA

We had a great time at the Decatur Book Festival. It was rewarding to be in our own community getting a chance to talk to parents and kids about the book. We met some really neat kids – some even entrepreneurs already. One sells mica rocks and her own homemade lemonade, another is working on a joke book to sell, and another sells anything he can get his hands on, to name a few. They all bought books. 🙂

One mom told us about her son who had thought of a machine to help him do his homework — just like Tyler does in the book! So, she bought him a copy. She thought he would get a kick out of it.

We also met several entrepreneur dads who bought the book for their kids.
One woman said this book is just what America needs. She had just watched Friday night’s 20/20 episode “Stupid in America” and as a result wanted to take her daughter to Belgium to get her a better education. [A 4-min commentary by John Stossel about the episode (they play a commercial first)] Although I did not see the episode, I did watch this 4-min video about it. This woman who wanted the Belgium education for her daughter, instead bought my book for her.

My daughter (who’s only 2) was a great sport at the festival. I can’t believe how well she did without taking a nap. That’s not to say she didn’t have her fussy moments, because she did…and she ended up in the time-out chair several times over the weekend. She ate a lot of candy and junk food (nothing but veggies and fruit for her today!) But all-in-all, she kept the temper tantrums to a minimum and even helped us out where she could. The best part — she learned to say, “Buy some books, please!” -an entrepreneur in the making.
