"Big Al" made more than $100 operating his own Christmas and Greeting card sales campaign over the summer of 1966 at the age of 7, less than a year after surviving a power lawn mower accident which resulted in losing a foot, all while living on a farm in Iowa!

While $100 doesn't sound like much today, in 1966 gasoline sold for a quarter a gallon, both a soda and a comic book cost a dime each and you could mail a first class letter for a nickel!  A brand new 26" StarJet bicycle could have been yours for only $29.97!

That $100 was enough to not only allow him to buy all the comic books and sodas he could handle, but it also gave him the enthusiasm to maintain the entrepreneurial spirit ever since.

Now, Big Al brings his inspiring "Teen Boss"  program to today's youth offering not only encouragement and inspiration, but also the tools necessary to launch the next generation of entrepreneurs. 

Attendees will learn:

  • How to choose the right type of business - right now!
  • Licensing, taxes and other necessary "evils" of business
  • What to do to get started becoming the next "Teen Boss" immediately
