His inspiration for selling bowties is his father, who is a comedian, after seeing him tie bowties before doing shows. He then wanted to inspire other children, too, when he started the company in 2017. He said, “I want children to believe in themselves.”
Moreover, the brothers have been asked by organizations based in different states to speak about being a ‘kid-preneur’ and to demonstrate tying bowties virtually. Their mother, Shana Thornton, is proud of them both, saying, “These are things that the boys try to platform even at their tender age of five and eight years old.”
Meanwhile, UPS has been helping the Thorntons through its ‘Wishes Delivered’ initiative and sent them a truck full of donations. Their courier drivers in Atlanta also wore bowties to celebrate the two young boys.
