What inspires you to write?
The idea that I can help someone be who they truly are. I know they have something in them the world needs, I’m just a gold digger getting it out of them.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am structured in this way. I literally build a bridge from where people are to where I want them to be, then I lay out a linear arrangement with stories, strategies, and ideas to help them get there. This book came to life when I no longer tolerated being broke, and depressed. I simply chose to be successful in the way I see it and went and did it. I found that success is easy when it’s self expressive because it’s literally who you are. I simply had to get out of my own way.
Who are your favorite authors?
I read the bible daily and I love to read the bible now that I know that it’s not written for everybody to agree with its aspects. I think it was written for each individual to get what they get from it. I also love to read zen books, and buddhist books. Authors I love are Jim Rohn, Stephen Covey, Brendon Burchard etc. The book that changed my life though was Steven Pressfield, The War of Art. That book empowered me to sit my ass down and write this book I wrote today.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I went with a self-publish for this reason. I wanted total control of the book because money isn’t my goal, my goal is to empower people. So I will try to give the book away free as much as I can without losing my shirt.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing can only get better. It allows people to do what I see as the only way to success, and that’s self expressing their own personal ideal.
