Q: What’s inside the mind of a Motivational/Self-Help author?
A: For me, I’m trying to first help myself. Most of the concepts I write about are ones I with which I at one time struggled. I assume I am no different from the average person, so the things I figure out I believe will help others as well.
Q: Tell us why readers should buy The Art of Making Good Decisions.
A: It will help individuals in their decision-making process, from understanding the “Why did I do that?” basis for a less-than-optimal decision, to the “What do I do now?” basis for upcoming decisions of any complexity.
Q: What makes a good Motivational/Self-Help Book?
A: It has to get within the readers’ circle, answer the “what’s in it for me?” question. It has to give the reader an assignment—something tactile to do.
Q: What has writing taught you?
A: I think it has taught me the importance of empathy, being able to transmit your sentences into something someone else can understand. It’s not a “talking down” sort of thing, but because everyone has different experiences, how I may explain a concept may be a miss with someone else. So understanding where that person is coming from is important.
