Fiona Reed


Fiona Reed started illustrating The Little Books Of Big Business as a 14-year-old artist and graphic designer.  She turned her love of art into income, by using many of the business principles in the books, she so beautifully illustrates.



She has approached each request for artwork like a project manager, providing proposals, creating sample images and meeting publication deadlines. Not only has this work been a fun project for her, but it has built her skills as an entrepreneur and future leader.

About The Little Books (2).jpg

The Little Books of Big Business is a series published by Success Street Coaching. Our mission is to empower kids with financial literacy knowledge through entrepreneurship. We are building a bridge to financial conversations for kids 7 – 13 so they can be financially savvy teens and financially independent young adults.

These books are fun and easy to read and can inspire conversations and teach financial literacy principles.  Our vision is to share the adventures of Cat, Emma, Max & Nick as a way to engage kids and adults to build confidence and capacities with practical money skills and basic business concepts and terminology.
