Where It All Started
In 2008 corporate executive Ty Allan Jackson was asked a question by is 6-year-old son Ajayi Jackson that would change his life. “Hey dad, can we open a lemonade stand?” In only three hours Ajayi made $50.00 selling lemonade prompting him to ask, “Dad, what am I going to do with all this money?” When given a question that he doesn’t know the answer Ty was taught by his mother to find those answers in a book. Unable to find a book that could teach children about finance and entrepreneurship Ty decided to create one. That book is titled Danny Dollar Millionaire Extraordinaire. Today Ty is no longer an executive. He is an award-winning children’s book author and Danny Dollar has been turned into a serial stories in numerous newspapers around the county and even adapted into a theatrical play. With four books written all under his company Big Head Books Ty is thrilled to be an author whose book inspire countless children around the world to dream big!
