Teen Entrepreneur's Book Debut Sends Potential Business Owners 'Young? So What!' Message


HOUSTON (July 1, 2009) - While many of today's youth are concerned with the latest video games, Keith J. Davis Jr. is making his literary debut, "Young? So What!" (K. Jerrold Publishing, U.S. $15.00). This young innovator strategically lays out 10 steps to become a successful entrepreneur. Davis is undaunted by anyone who may ask, "What can an 18-year old tell me about achieving success?" 
Within the pages of his guide to success, Davis unveils how he was able to launch his first business, K. Jerrold Enterprises. Already leading a successful life, Davis outlines in his book the keys to developing a positive mental attitude, having a plan, putting great ideas into action, the power of a mentoring team, mastering your craft, networking, not settling for second place, exceeding expectations and success longevity.  He also recognizes the value of learning from your mistakes. He teaches that failure serves as a guide for what not to do in the quest for success.
"Young? So What!" is a well-written map offering directions of simple yet powerful messages that encourage people to seek success and not to stop until they find it. Davis makes it clear that success is not a destination, but a journey.
Adults and community leaders alike have found Davis' life tips stunning, particularly coming from a teen.  "Keith is an extraordinary young man and his new book is a reflection of who he is," said ReShonda Tate Billingsley, national bestselling author.  "I recommend 'Young? So What!' to anyone looking for greater clarity on how to achieve success as an entrepreneur or in life period."
Davis is a living example of hard work and perseverance. He is not thwarted by naysayers, obstacles or life's challenges. "My parents are big contributors to my mindset," said Davis. "Even though they divorced when I was five, I didn't let that bother me. They instilled in me that there are no excuses for not attaining your life goals and no certain age for when a person should begin to leave their mark in the world. 'Young? So What!' chronicles what I've learned and observed, and what I've been sharing with other kids my age for years."

Davis is a well-respected speaker who travels the U.S. delivering his insightful message of coupling the right frame of mind with sheer determination. Davis is fueled by his passion for helping people by encouraging them to pave their own path to success.  And now, through his book and speaking engagements across the nation, he once again finds a new level of achievement. 
Along his journey to becoming a proven, foremost entrepreneur authority, Davis laid the foundation for his impending success with the K. Jerrold Enterprises corporate mission statement:
K. Jerrold Enterprises believes all persons, regardless of their circumstance, have the right to enjoy the same full range of life experience that others enjoy. We believe each person who desires to live and work hard can be successful.

This highly anticipated book, "Young? So What!" will resonate with young readers as well as adults. It is a must-read and a remarkable testament to what can happen when our young people listen to their parents, grandparents, caregivers, mentors or any other responsible adult in their lives.
