Descripción del libro
Cody, a young boy with Aspergers, watched his father slowly die of alcoholism when Cody was eleven. When Cody was fifteen, he saw his mother deteriorating from the same disease. An outcast at school, his only joy during his teenage years was his dog Max, talks with his grandfather, and the online web hosting business he was building. On the day when his servers crashed and his 112 customers were screaming at him, foster care came knocking and pulled Cody out of his own home. He was sixteen years old. Before Cody would become a legal adult, he was a seasoned entrepreneur, already generating nearly $1M in revenue. Now at 25, Cody is the founder of five companies, three of which generate millions in revenue each year. Cody is sharing his story to inspire underprivileged young people, would-be entrepreneurs, and people with Aspergers.

According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, Children represent 24 percent of the population, but they comprise 34 percent of all people in poverty. Among all children under 18 years of age, 45 percent live in low-income families and approximately one in every five (22 percent) live in poor families. Of children age 12 through 17 years, 40%—9.7 million—live in low-income families.
Additionally, based on U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Department of Education data, an estimated 1.3 million educators support children in need in the United States. This demographic is hungry to make something of themselves and Cody’s inspirational story can serve as a catalyst in their lives.
