Billy Carson and 4biddenknowledge TV: Making Learning Exciting
Billy Carson once heard from a middle schooler who said that learning was boring and that he couldn’t pay attention in school. “This bothered me a lot,” he says, remembering. “I love to learn, to be honest. The world and what lies beyond it fascinates me, and I was concerned about this kid who was so unmotivated to learn. It’s one of the reasons I decided to create 4biddenknowledge TV. I wanted to show kids that everything around us is spectacular and very much worth exploring.” Mr. Carson’s online documentaries are accomplishing what he set out to do. “We have created shows that all of the family can enjoy together, and the feedback we’ve been getting has been positive. Parents are happy that they have something exciting to watch that is thought-provoking, and kids are glad that the topics are engaging and have great cinematography.”
Mr. Carson says that viewers have a lot of choices when they visit 4biddenknowledge TV’s site. “We wanted to be sure that anyone, no matter their interests or personalities, could find something cool to watch,” he says. “So, we cover everything from the Incas to outer space. There’s even a program about different types of music. It’s a very diverse network.”
Running a project of this size and scope isn’t easy, but Mr. Carson has been successful because of his strong work ethic. “I got that from my father, who decided when I was only a year old that I would write book reports each week,” he remembers. “Then, my parents required me to pay rent to live in the family home when I was twelve. I was also required to use my own money to pay for most of my daily needs.”
Far from regretting this time of his life, Mr. Carson is actually thankful for it. “It made me an innovator thinker and the entrepreneur I am today,” he explains. “It got me through some tough times, including when I needed new pants because they were too small.”
To solve the problem, Mr. Carson bought 79-cent packs of dye from the grocery store and bleached his pants before dyeing them to a different color. “The next day, I went to school wearing a different colored pair of pants. As far as everyone knew, I had at least three or four different colored pairs of pants every week. It was experiences like this that toughened me and gave me the mindset that I would provide for myself and solve my own problems.”
This self-reliance led to Mr. Carson selling newspaper subscriptions for the Miami News at the age of twelve, and he became the top newspaper subscription person. “I invested all of that money into electronics. At fourteen, I started an electronics company, and by fifteen, I was making more than my parents did. By sixteen, I had moved out of my parents’ house and had two cars and an apartment, and I still graduated from high school, all while running my own business.”
Since those early days, Mr. Carson has created a long list of achievements. He is the best-selling author of The Compendium Of The Emerald Tablets and Woke Doesn’t Mean Broke, the new financial bible. He runs a multi-million dollar company that is dedicated to helping people around the world. Mr. Carson is a host on dozens of shows pertaining to science, astrophysics, and ancient civilizations. He is also an expert host on Deep Space, a new original streaming series by Gaia that explores the Secret Space Program, revealing extraordinary technologies and their potential origins. Additionally, he serves as an expert host on Gaia’s original series, Ancient Civilizations, in which a team of renowned scholars deciphers the riddles of our origins and pieces together our forgotten history documented in monuments and texts around the world.
“I believe strongly in education, so I recently earned the Certificate of Science, with an emphasis on neuroscience, at M.I.T.,” he says. Mr. Carson is also using his passion for knowledge as CEO of First Class Space Agency, which is involved in research and development of alternative propulsion systems and zero-point energy devices. For now, however, 4biddenknowledge TV is Mr. Carson’s passion. “I’m on fire for this show,” he says. “Each day is a new adventure because I go with my employees into topics that are so interesting. Check it out, and you’ll be as hooked on it as I am.”
