Emerson and Richard Daub

Emerson Daub recently published his second book, HyperKid v. BullBorg. Backed by a national PR campaign, the juvenile novel is selling well on Amazon in several categories, including Growing Up & Facts of Life.

What makes Emerson different from the crowd of other children’s books writers is that, he, himself, is just 9 years old – at least until July 22nd that is, when he turns the big 1-0.

Emerson’s parents did, and this week, reputation coach and Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart – in his best investigative mode – gets the scoop from both Emerson and his proud papa Richard. (Hint: Emerson’s favorite color is red; Richard’s is blue.)

If you’ve ever dreamed of going into business with your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, you’ll want to hear the inspiring tale behind Hyperkid v. BullBorg.

Scott Frazer and his son, Sean, help run the family’s service station and convenience store, Milne Court, in tiny New Minas, Nova Scotia, population 2,500.

Last month, when out of the blue an elderly customer in their store asked Sean to dance with her, he obliged. Sean’s impromptu senior citizen waltz was captured on Milne Court’s security cameras and Dad Scott posted it to Facebook. In a two-step, the video went viral and is now nearing 1 million views.

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Scott and Sean share with reputation coach and host Dean Rotbart the story behind their viral video, and the takeaways we all can utilize to generate our own popular online videos.
