Jack James is an ordinary kid who started his own business at age 10. He wrote a book to tell other kids how to start one too! Jack's book is written from one kid to another. In How to Let Your Parents Raise a Millionaire Jack tells other kids the story of how he started his business, Jack's Garbage Valet. He explains how easy and fun it can be and explains exactly why other kids should strive to become an entrepreneur.

There are plenty of great books out there about kids and business, but Jack's book is different - it is the unique story of how one kid did it. It is personal, practical, easy to read, encouraging and fun.

Jack even had the courage to include a couple of special chapters. In one chapter, he talks about what it was like to be bullied. He explains how you can overcome the negative message the bullies put on you and end up even stronger. He also shares with his readers what it is like to have Dyslexia, a reading disability and how he is working to overcome it.

Jack is a native Californian who lives in San Jose with his mom, their three dogs, one parrot and every single Star Wars: The Clone Wars action figure known to man! :-)
