Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Two books. Both address the same issue. Is Self Employment for You? The first book was published in 2005 and the second book has recently been published on Kindle. I have been in business for myself for over 25 years. I have written numerous articles and have hosted radio shows on what it takes to succeed in self-employment. This provided me the vehicle to interview hundreds of successful entrepreneurs.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Is Self Employment for You? Ten Years Later. After reviewing the first book, I wanted to see if what I wrote over ten years ago was still relevant today.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t know the answer to this question. See my answer to the question about my “writing process.”
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Mainly books of non-fiction.
What are you working on now?
Lifestyles of the Self-Employed.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
There is no one perfect method. It takes numerous platforms: website, emails, social media, radio, word of mouth, presentations, etc.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write every day. Set aside 30 minutes, one-hour, two-hours; whatever you can fit into your schedule. Also pick a consistent time. 5 a.m.? 7 a.m.? or 7 p.m. and stick to the regiment of writing every day.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Only three things in life are real. Death, human folly, and laughter. The first two are beyond our comprehension, so do with the third what you can.
What are you reading now?
Age of Discovery
What’s next for you as a writer?
Trying to think about more platforms where I can help people succeed if they take the step into self-employment. As you can see, I am narrowly focused when it comes to writing.
What is your favorite book of all time?
