About A Squared Entertainment
A Squared Entertainment is an entertainment company dedicated to producing
“content with a purpose” for kids. In today’s digital age, entertainment for kids is
no longer a passive activity. Kids interact with media and A2 creates purposeful
content that is as entertaining as it is enriching and engaging. In partnership with
one of the greatest, and wisest, “value investors” of all time, A2 created Secret
Millionaires Club to help kids better understand the world around them. The
goal was not to teach kids to read a balance sheet, but rather explain how
business functions, with situations they can relate to. And, impart some valuable
life lessons along the way that will serve them a lifetime.
We are eternally grateful to Mr. Buffett, who was instrumental in creating the
original “curriculum” that served as the foundation for the TV series and this
book, a collection of valuable and easy-to-understand life lessons to help guide
kids to develop healthy habits from a young age. Lessons like: “The best
investment is an investment you make in yourself.”
“The more you learn, the more you’ll earn.”
“It takes a lifetime to build your reputation, and five minutes to ruin it.”
“Find something you like to do, and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.”
It’s never too early to develop good habits that will last a lifetime, and we hope
that Secret Millionaires Club will help kids discover that they already have the
power to live the life that they dream of.

The Secret’s Out ...!
Hi kids! My name is WARREN BUFFETT, a local investor around these parts.
I want to tell you about a very a special club where four 14-year-olds and a
robot help other kids—and adults—answer questions and solve problems about
money and business, as well as offering some really good advice that will serve
you for a lifetime!

The club is extra special, not only because we help solve money problems for
people all over the world, but also because it’s a secret.
And that’s why we call it Secret Millionaires Club!
Besides me, the club members are: RADLEY HEMMING, an African-
American computer whiz; STARTY, a very cool robot that Radley built; ELENA
RAMIREZ, a warmhearted teenager who dreams of working for the United
Nations; JONES a freewheeling sports-guy who goes everywhere on his
skateboard; and LISA, a Chinese exchange student who wants to be a fashion designer.

The kids might all have different dreams, but everyone in Secret Millionaires
Club has one thing in common: an interest in learning about business and how it
can teach valuable lessons that they can use as they embark on life’s amazing journey.
Our meetings are held in a cool underground, high-tech conference room
where we maintain our website, connect to the world, and stream the latest social
networks on a giant video screen.

Speaking of video screen, we also have “D.E.B.”, which stands for DEMAND
EDUCATIONAL BASE—an online anthropomorphic encyclopedia that gives us
access to all the knowledge that is out there by way of our laptops, digital
tablets, smartphones, and other devices.
You might be wondering, how did Secret Millionaires Club form and what was
the very first secret the kids learned?
Well, I’m glad you asked. . .
