Happy Tuesday #Jontourage,
Welcome back to the “Classy Gent Chronicles”, where staying classy is the only way to be. Let's jump right into it....
So today is the day I reveal my book cover to the world for my upcoming book, “Growing Gents”. It has been an exciting journey to work on a second book. The purpose of this book is to teach boys at a very early age what the world expects of them. How many children’s books are out there telling boys to help around the house, open doors, and control their temper? The demand came from a lot of mothers who wish I had material for their younger kids/toddlers since "Master of Ceremonies: A Male's Guide for a Successful Life" is for the teen audience. If enough kids read this book, we have the opportunity to build a group of boys that will ultimately become men and will have respect for themselves and others. Without further suspense, here is the book cover to my second book (first children’s book).
Hope you liked what you saw. The cool part about “Growing Gents” is that this is a great book for a parent to sit down and read to their child. I am looking to release “Growing Gents” in the summer so I hope you purchase a copy, maybe two. The cool part with writing a children’s book is that I have the opportunity to expand my brand some more. I know in marketing, it’s best to have a main target audience and stick to that but I like to jump outside of that every now and again. Like that time Beyonce was on a country song….
In the midst of writing this book, I have learned some important lessons about children’s books:
Moral of the story: In business, sometimes it is okay to challenge yourself to step out of your normal routine. You might mess around and make a children's book. Be sure to order "Growing Gents" coming this summer.
Remember, in order to live out your dreams, you have to think it, feel it, live it! Until next time, stay classy...
