What inspires you to write?
I am greatly inspired by Robert Kiyosaki's teachings on the need for financial literacy and financial independence for everyone . Of serious worry to me is the continuous negligence of financial education by many educational institutions, leading to the existence of academic geniuses everywhere but who are financial morons. Kiyosaki's first book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, actually ignited this passion in me.
Tell us about your writing process.
Yes, I am an outliner. I first devour books that are in line with whatever I am writing about, making notes and marking the parts of the book that are related to what I'm writing. This helps me to sift other peoples' ideas that are similar or different from what I want to talk about. Then I outline (on paper – not whiteboard or with a software) the
Who are your favorite authors?
This is very simple: Robert T. Kyosaki, Robert G. Allen, Donald Trump, Brian Tracy and many other authors that write on financial education, self-awareness, personal effectiveness and independence.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I had a friend-publisher who decided to guide me on the journey to publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing is bright. As long as people exist on earth, there must be ideas and experiences – both sweet and bitter – that people would want to pass across. I always believe that everyone on earth has at least one book in him/her. And people like us have more that 50 books in us still unpublished. That's trillions of books, you know. And there are billions of people waiting to read and learn from these experiences.
What genres do you write?
My preferred genres are non-fiction – self help, personal effectiveness, financial literacy for all levels and business.
