How to be Charlie One: "Simply Being A Young Adult in an Adult World" is a book that explains adult tasks and decisions simply for young adults. 

Charlie One was my squad name when I was deployed in 2016. Charlie One was very influential upon me maturing and learning how to navigate with adult tasks. Charlie One gave me the first step to a lot of questions I had. I tried Googling 'how to buy a house' or 'how to do my taxes' to find answers.I always got confused with textbook answers. I had the spectacular idea that there are probably tons of other young adults who have the same questions as I do. How to Be Charlie One was born and it explains 5 adult tasks in the most simplest way that it can be explained.

Risks and challenges

The biggest hump this booklet has is lack of exposure. I have written avenues of distribution to use but marketing takes time. By using Kickstarter, I can generate an audience before the publishing date to help gain exposure. There are the avenues of social media, online book and publishing websites, blogs, and YouTube.

I did a survey where approximately 35 respondents said that they follow companies and products mostly on Facebook, Instagram, and their personal website.The respondents also said that they purchase most of their books from Amazon or a direct bookstore.

With the funding I will be able to put "How to be Charlie One" on Amazon for hard copy printing and eBook. By having, ISBN and a bar code, I will be able to pitch into bookstores too.
