New Book Released Today Targets Young Adults, Creating the Next Generation of Young Adult Entrepreneurs

I am pleased to announce a new book released today ‘Freddie and Billie’s New Business Adventure’, first book in a new Doc Larsen Business Adventure Series.

The new book and series contribute to helping create the next generation of young adult entrepreneurs which I consider critically important. I appreciated the initial positive  reviews . New book draws on teaching entrepreneurship/ management at 3 universities since 2002 and my four decades of corporate and new venture development and management.

Here is copy of today’s press release:

RESTON, Va., June 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Freddie and Billie’s New Business Adventure by Paul B. Silverman is the first book in the Doc Larsen Business Adventure Series™ providing young adults with new skills helping them plan, launch and manage a new business venture.

Print and Kindle Editions

Doc Larsen Business Adventure SeriesTM

  • Teach young adults to fish and they eat.
  • Teach young adults entrepreneurship and they think about business, understand how it works, how you evaluate ideas and shape ideas into business opportunities.
  • Entrepreneurship empowers young adults with a head start – thinking ‘out of the box’, testing traditional ways of thinking, translating physical actions into models to drill-down on potential opportunities.
  • Entrepreneurship empowers young adults with a competitive edge entering the job market regardless of what career path they pursue. Entrepreneurship teaches students critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, teamwork, ethics, social responsibility and how to plan, develop, launch and manage a new business.

Young readers are introduced to the Business In A Box™ planning system with seven integrated models, developed by the author introducing young adults to entrepreneurship and providing a strong foundation on how to create a successful new venture. The ‘Business In A Box™‘ seven model approach is a powerful system, simple to plan, launch and manage new ventures. Easy to explain, the models fit together offering a simplified streamlined process and a powerful tool helping young adult entrepreneurs develop a new venture plan.

Using conversations and story-telling techniques, a light entertaining, highly readable, jargon-free style, not academic lectures, to develop a real business plan ensures Freddie and Billie’s ‘learn by doing’ experience and journey is well received by young adult readers.

The number of unemployed young adults (16 to 19 years) jumped from 12 million in March to 29 million in June. Given need to help address this challenge the new book was released today in the US and internationally on Amazon (print and Kindle). Distribution via bookstores, educational institutions and libraries, and promotional tour delayed until Fall 2020.

My view is we can do more to promote entrepreneurship, including innovative regional and possibly national programs building upon many excellent resources now in place. The new book and the creation of the Doc Larsen Business Adventure SeriesTM is my contribution as an initial step. Today’s entrepreneurial revolution is creating new alternatives to spur innovation and business development and will be discussing ideas we can pursue in coming months.

Creating the next generation of young adult entrepreneurs is an ambitious tasks and I invite all to do what you can to support this objective, or as Doc Larsen says, ‘Pay it Forward’ to our next generation of youbg adult entrepreneurs.
