‘There is a gaping hole in the market for good financial literacy for children. We know our kids aren’t getting a useable financial education in school. If they don’t get it from home, they are going to have a rough go at life.
C.S. Hughes – Speaker, Author & International Success Coach
‘What a brilliant idea! Having worked in the Learning & Development arena for the last 12 years I totally understand the importance of getting children and adults to think differently, and can I really see how these books can benefit peoples lives.
Apart from running my own training company, I am the Chair of the ‘Norwich Yes Group‘, which is a personal development group. I am extremely passionate about people development and it’s really refreshing to see such an amazing project which will inspire and empower children to think differently, develop themselves and become the best they can be.
In the personal development world we see adults in their 30s and 40s learning amazing skills and tools to enhance their lives, so sharing these skills and tools with children at an early age can only benefit them. They will then be growing up learning the right mindset needed to thrive, develop, and grow. I can’t wait to read the first book and can assure you that my son Leon will be reading the whole series ’

‘The Alfie Potts books provide much needed financial and business education for children in an easy to absorb format. And, if you are a grown up, then you may just find that the messages in the books provide you with some food for thought too!
If these books become the bed time stories our children read, we can look forward to a more affluent and prosperous society for all.’
Simon Hazeldine - International Speaker, Performance Consultant and Bestselling author of ‘Bare Knuckle Selling’, ‘Bare Knuckle Negotiating’, ‘Bare Knuckle Customer Service’ and ‘The Inner Winner’
‘As a Success Psychologist, CEO of The Happiness Foundation and MD of The Lifelong Learning Company, I just love the innovative and heart-centred way that Mark Hibbitts has developed the character of Alfie Potts. Mark has created an inspiring way of empowering and teaching young people to learn, to think differently, to recognise there are infinite possibilities in this universe, and to teach them about values as well as financial awareness and entrepreneurial skills.
The word ‘education’ originates from the latin ‘e-ducare’ meaning to draw out or lead forth. Without question Mark Hibbitts’ much needed series of books will do just that and bring out the very best in their young readers.’
‘I met Mark Hibbitts some months ago and was delighted to hear that he was writing books for children that would emphasise how important it is to be positive. It’s about time we had books written for children that break new ground; young people seem to be faced with so much negative in the media – books, television, magazines etc as well as the people around us and there seems to be so little to counter it.
Isn’t it brilliant that we now we have the ‘Alfie Potts’ series of books I wish Mark all the success I know he will have – when is there a better time to start influencing others to have more confidence, higher self-esteem than when they are young?’
