About the Author

Cheryl Sturm is a cofounder and vice president of R. Crusoe & Son, which creates unusual cultural journeys around the world. She used what she learned from her MBA at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management—and many other life experiences at home and abroad—to help build a successful company. The daughter of an Army major, Cheryl was born in Berlin, Germany, raised in Wisconsin, and lives in Chicago. She began her career as a television reporter in Wisconsin, but a professional detour happily lead her to international travel. 100 First Words for Little CEOs is Cheryl's first book with Familius. Her inspirations are her nieces, nephews, and godchildren, and she looks forward to sharing her insights about the world with other thoughtful and curious children.

Kyle Kershner has loved drawing since he was a tot. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in sequential art and spends his days doing what he loves most: illustrating children's books and making kid-friendly art.

"Whether we realize it or not, we all spend our lives selling. Even if we're not sales professionals, we're promoting ideas, developing projects and asking for help, persuading others to our ways of thinking... 100 First Words for Little CEOs is a great beginning for the littlest go-getters to start learning how to communicate and lead, and those are the primary building blocks of any professional and personal success. This book also engages the loving adults who read to the children in their lives. Cheryl put her own Kellogg MBA to work as she helped found the top international travel firm, R. Crusoe & Son. Now all those lessons learned are coming full circles as she shares them with business leaders to be".
