Author and Entrepreneur Don-Alan Rekow has had business blood running through his veins from the time he was 10 years old. Having had businesses throughout the world, Don-Alan has worked with many people and had various mentors who have helped him understand what it takes to make a successful business. His unprecedented work on the COnCEPT Q Philosophy uniquely lays out an understanding that would be essential for everyone who desires to go into business.
A small portion of this work has been laid out in his book “GET OnQ!!” (SAbER Mounatin 2015) which is taught in Business Kids Academy. Concepts are taught to kids and teens in an online setting.
SAbER Mountain Publishers and iSAbER TV have created Business Kids Academy to teach business ideas and basics that are not taught in basic public education. Current educational systems have curriculum geared toward training a child for the general work force and not to be business owners.
