Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
So far I have only written 2 books but have 5 more to go in my series.
I have been building businesses since I was 25 years and I have made many mistakes along the way. Each day I see business owners making the same, common mistakes resulting in years of frustration and loss of sales.
Most of these can be easily avoided. Since I was a kid I always loved taking ideas and trying to transform them into businesses. I have also, always loved helping others do the same.
My teachings are dedicated to helping entrepreneurs build smarter businesses to compete in today’s competitive world.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is titled – The Best Sales Tips For Attracting Cash Paying Raving Fans. This is book 2 in my Best Smart Business Ideas series. The series covers the entire business cycle from finding lucrative ideas, correctly positioning them, sales, marketing, scaling and automation. Book 2 covers the sales process.
Book 1 in my series has been an Amazon No.1 Best Seller for over 16 months and it has allowed my lessons to be reached by thousands of people around the world. Many of whom are now in my Facebook support forum. It is a great, thriving community.
Seeing them take a risk, give business a go and trying to better their lives for their families is very inspiring for me and I really want to help them succeed on their journeys.

I think you need to create your tribe of followers. Understand those who resonate with your message. You can’t please everybody so focus your writing and content on what your tribe loves.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Take a stock take of your life right now. Are you where you want to be? If not, what are you going to change to move towards where you want to go, so in 1 years time when you do another stock take, you know you haven’t wasted another year.
