Houston Gunn is the 16-year-old author of Schooled For Success: How I Plan to Graduate from High School A Millionaire. He wrote the book to inspire other young people to learn about entrepreneurship, but also make more parents and educators aware of a career path that’s often overlooked.
Houston is young, but he comes from a family of entrepreneurs and decided at a young age that he wanted to work for himself. He credits support and encouragement from family and other mentors for helping him get where he is today.
He learned early on that you don’t get what you don’t ask for. When he was 13 he asked his parents if he could put his income from appearing in a TV commercial to better use by partnering with them on a real estate project. They said “Yes.”
When he was 14 and working on his first book, he asked Donald Trump if he’d answer some questions about entrepreneurship. He said “Yes.”
Like anyone else, Houston has heard his share of “No’s,” too. He says “No” is a part of life and certainly a part of business, but he tries not to take rejection personally. Hearing “No” motivates him to try harder next time.
Houston's wish is that the book empowers young people as well as their parents and teachers to think about the future in new ways. It may not be entrepreneurship but it will require the courage to ask questions and take risks.

Houston Gunn is a 16-year-old-entrepreneur, author, real estate investor and musician who is on a mission to inspire other young people to take steps now to build successful futures. His first book, “Schooled for Success – How I Plan to Graduate from High School a Millionaire,” shares his story.
The CEO he interviewed for a job shadow assignment during his freshman year of high school challenged him to write what became “Schooled for Success.”
Gunn even caught the attention of famed business mogul Donald Trump, who granted an interview via email that is shared in the book.
Teachers also motivated Houston, though not in ways they likely expected. He set the goal of earning $1 million by high school graduation on his first day as a freshman. At the freshman assembly, the leadership teacher’s announcement they could earn $1 million in their lifetimes they got good grades, went to college and got good jobs.
His classmates’ cheers and whooping confused Houston, who had done the math: $1 million over a 40-year career is $25,000 a year. He thought: “Why are the teachers and freshmen cheering and going wild? We the graduating class of 2015 should be booing and have got to learn more about money. We should be worth more than a million dollars over our lifetime!”
With entrepreneurial parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, Houston knows what he wants. He has figured out how to get it and encourages all young people as well as their parents not to shy away from asking for what they want.
He is now living outside Nashville, TN, with his family. Houston loves playing everything from percussion to the guitar and bass, fiddle and mandolin as well as singing and songwriting. But he is still a teenager and loves pizza, motorcycles, and blue Corvettes.

The Summer of 1984 was an eventful 3 months for new Commissioner David Stern and the NBA; on the heels of an epic 7-game Finals slugfest between Larry Bird’s World Champion Boston Celtics and Magic Johnson’s Los Angeles Lakers, the first of 3 heavyweight bouts in the Decade, the NBA Draft was held in New York City; the Draft would introduce fans to 4 future Hall of Famers who would each write their own chapter in the NBA’s History Books. There was Forward Charles Barkley of Auburn, the rowdy, raucous “Round Mound of Rebound”, his polar opposite, little-known Guard John Stockton of Gonzaga, the majestic Nigerian Center and Number One pick Akeem “The Dream” Olajuwon from the University of Houston, and the electric (Cue Chicago Bulls Public Address Announcer …”6 foot 6 Guard from North KAR-O-LINA!”)…Michael Jeffrey Jordan. These next-level players would secure the NBA’s rapidly growing stature as the Sport of the Future, with Bird and Magic now at the peak of their powers. Jordan, Georgetown Center Patrick Ewing and 10 of College Basketball’s best would represent USA Basketball in the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, led by iconic and infamous Coach Bobby Knight of Indiana University. Knight, known lovingly as a “Raving Maniac” by his players brought his no-nonsense, drill-sergeant mentality to the USA program and molded yet another Gold Medal Winner. The agony and ecstacy of the Draft process, with its Franchise-changing consequences were never more evident than the summer of ’84.
