B.S.E. gives students the opportunity to sell merchandise, in the form of books, to learn important lessons in entrepreneurship and enterprise.
Santa Clarita, CA: October 3, 2021.
Alessandro Concas, a budding entrepreneur from Tesoro del Valle Elementary School, is setting a new venture in motion that will give other young students interested the chance to learn business skills. Book Selling Enterprise, or B.S.E., will provide Alessandro’s published books for children to sell, from which they will gain experience in entrepreneurship, public relations, and salespersonship. Further, those who sell books with B.S.E. are entitled to 25% profit, giving them an understanding of what it means to have a salary and balance personal finances, and are likely to benefit from future advantages such as scholarships, awards, and promotions.
“I realized that there are not many afterschool programs that teach kids how to be good entrepreneurs, so I created B.S.E. for kids like me to have the chance to learn more about having business responsibilities and practice their skills in the real world,” explains Alessandro, Founder and CEO. “My hope is that B.S.E. will expand to support students across California, and even other states, so that more students can learn from this program.”
Children who are primed to think with an entrepreneurial spirit obtain behaviors and skills that can help them lead a successful life, such as self-confidence, resilience, problem solving, creativity and innovative thinking, goal setting, initiative, and even empathy. B.S.E. is focused on instilling those same core values in the young minds of current elementary and middle school students. Alessandro has felt the way that his business and finance skills have motivated him, and he wants to share it with as many other children his age as possible.
Students affiliated through B.S.E. will be selling Alessandro’s penned novels, “The A to Zs of Fighting Boredom” and the exciting, sci-fi “Life of the TIme Cat.” These books were written to keep children his age engaged and active, and provide fun storytelling for all ages. B.S.E. is excited to expand its book and merchandising stock in the coming years and reach more children eager to learn.
