Timmy Bauer lives in Orlando, Florida. He is the author and illustrator of “Billy the Dragon,” “The Pisonous Woods,” “Zoe to the Rescue,” “Harper Hears No,” and “Lucas the Dinosaur Entrepeneur.” Before being an author, he worked for the Walt Disney Company as a puppeteer and actor. He also hosts two podcasts called the “The Purpose Driven Entrepeneur” and “The Literacy Advocate.” He is the owner of the kids book production company Dinosaur House, where they turn industry leaders into kids book authors.

Who is Lucas the Dinosaur Entrepreneur?

Lucas is a little blue dino who dreams of creating value, and building a company that helps everyone in his neighborhood.

Lucas wanted to figure out how he could make money, so he made two lists, the first one: everything he LOVES to do. The second one, everything he already knows how to do and has to do all the time.

He realized he loves playing outside every day, and his neighbor across the street has a dog who doesn’t get enough exercise! 

Wait a second! He can PLAY outside AND earn money at the same time?! He pitched his idea to Mrs. Spinosaurus, and she was HAPPY to give him 10 dollars a week so her dog would get plenty of care and exercise.

Now Lucas is wondering… how many more houses in his neighborhood have pets who might need this?

Lucas learns everything he can about building a business from Gary Vee-lossa-raptor. I hope he can impart some of that learning to your kids. Check out the comics on Instagram @DinosaurEntrepreneur, grab a copy of the book for cheap on Amazon today.

Teaching Entrepreneurship
to Kids

dinosaurhouse

You can’t teach entrepreneurship without inspiring kids. If you’re a parent who wants to inspire your kids to be more entrepreneurial, here’s something I got from an entrepreneur named John Meese: start taking them to meet business owners.  

When you go into an establishment, ask to see if your kid can meet the owner. Let the owner talk about the ups and downs of building their business and you’ll get a TON of teachable conversations.

I have another friend named James Carbary, who instead of doing an allowance, setup a plan to pay his son to do book reports on nonfiction books on bizdev, leadership, and generosity.

I wrote Lucas because I wanted to create a fiction story that is as true to life as ever about what being an entrepreneur really is: finding a market need that matches what you find satisfying to do skillfully. Then solving one problem at a time within your business until you have a scaled business.

If you’re interested in more than that, please talk to me about a course I want to develop to help young kids find real needs they can serve well.

What Is a Story Artist?

When I was a kid, I dreamed of being a story artist. Someone who can use art to make stories come to life.

There are so many forms that this can take and so many job functions within this category.

If you’re kid dreams of being a story artist, start by encouraging them to devour and try practicing the behind the scenes practices of the works of story art they like the most.

If they LOVE Disney animation, get them every behind the scenes featurette you can and encourage them to try doing the things those professionals do. Whether its storyboarding, digital sculpting, wire frame animation, character design, background design, or any of the other job functions shown.

If you’re interested in having me inspire your kids to produce story art, I teach a mini lesson on character design that I’d be happy to host at your school.
