Content partners help Voyage in so many ways from spreading the word about the work that we do, sponsoring our mission and collaborating with us on content like this. Check out our conversation with Jabez and Christopher below.

Jabez and Christopher, it’s been too long since we last connected. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with our community again. Some readers might have missed our prior conversations, so maybe you can kick things off for us with a quick intro?
We’re kidpreneurs, Jabez and Christopher, owners and designers of Kings and Gents Accessories. We’re from Atlanta and 15 and 14 years old. We design and make bow ties for boys by boys and choose, cut and sew the fabrics. Because of the success of our bow tie business we landed a book deal and wrote a book about our kidpreneur journey called Bow Tie Brothers.

How do you balance being a kidpreneur and being a kid?
We have to manage our time between being in business, school and sports. We mainly do our business on the weekends, around sports and keeping our grades up in school. Our games are during the week. We have a new show coming out in April and we record on Sunday. The show highlights kidpreneurs like us and will air on YouTube and our new network, Kings and Gents TV, on Roku.

What has been your favorite moment so far as a kidpreneur?
We’ve had some pretty cool opportunities because we’re kidpreneurs. We were the only kid-designers at Atlanta Intl Fashion Week. That was an awesome experience to have our bow ties featured on a platform of that size.

Any advice for other young people thinking about starting a business or project?
You can be successful as a kid, just stay focused. Always believe in yourself, even when others doubt you, and you can do it.

Thank you so much again for sharing all of this with us. Before we go, can you share with our readers how they can connect with you, learn more or show support?
