Making Money While You're Sleeping: My Journey as a Kid Entrepreneur tells the story of fourteen-year-old inventor Sean Gilmore and the journey he undertook to bring a product that he conceived when he was just ten years old to market. This graphic book is written to help young people and teens understand the steps and processes needed to begin a business of their own.
