06/18/2008 - Developing a Business with Character(s)!
NAWBO St. Louis welcomes local author Michelle Bain, the creator of Thumbs Up Johnnie™ children’s books. Please attend this magical, characterrific event as Michelle shares her experiences about growing her national book series that teaches values and promotes character-building. There will be a book signing after the event and 15% of the proceeds benefit NAWBO St. Louis.
Michelle Bain owned and operated Home Instead Senior Care for 10 years before creating Thumbs Up Johnnie™ in the Spring of 2002. As a child, reading fueled her imagination and gave her an appetite for the artistry of writing. Her quest for creating a world where children can learn through humor and by examples of virtue is her primary motivator. Her vision is for The Adventures of Thumbs Up Johnnie™ to “imprint” traditional values and strong character in her young readers, as well as restore innocence to today’s youth.
