Edmond, OK, November 18, 2009 – In 1987, Tom Pace had $62.53 to his name and solid reputation as a failure.  He was 30 years old and had a string of 30 jobs that he hadn’t been able to hold along with failed attempts at college.  He had entered adulthood with the ability to read at a fourth-grade level.  Today, he is the author of the book Mentor:  The Kid & The CEO.


Written like an inspirational novel, the book is loosely based on Pace’s own life with characters that are composites of himself and others he has known.  “I’ve fictionalized my autobiography.  I wanted to write a book that would be entertaining but would also educate, “ Pace said.


Mentoring goes both ways for Pace.  Not only does he have mentors but he serves as a mentor as well. Like Malcolm in the book, Pace conducts meetings and passes out books every Monday evening at the Oklahoma County Jail. “I believe anyone can reach the top no matter where they are in life,” he said.


While Pace currently mentors several individuals from CEO’s to 15-year-olds, he also has a book-giving mission.  Reading is important to Pace because the knowledge he has acquired from books has helped him to have a significant life. “I have a mild case of dyslexia and I have Attention Deficit Disorder,” he said.  “I didn’t focus, so I didn’t read.”  Eventually, he read a book that opened his mind to the benefits of reading, and he has now read more than 500 books.  “When we read, we realize we’re not alone;” he said.


Pace released a companion workbook to Mentor: The Kid & The CEO in September of 2009.  The workbook compliments the book by helping readers to put the principles of the book into practice including a dream list, exercise program and budget.  “I want people to see the value of having a mentor in their life and I want people to see the value of mentoring,” Pace said.  “We need to help others and not expect anything back,” he said.





Author and business owner Tom Pace read at the 4th grade level at age 26.  Today he is an avid reader and CEO of PaceButler Corporation, a multi-million dollar, international company.
