Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew-up in Gauteng, South Africa. This enabled me to experience the sporting life at school, Army and University. Many of the Life Secret questions and answers I gained from interacting and communicating with the top Achievers, coupled with my experience as a lecturer at UNISA to communicate in writing to students.
The purpose of this book is to share with the reader a practical approach to and methodology for unbundling corporate management that will assist business leaders in improving their company’s results and provide corporate executives with an employee empowerment management model.
This is a story about and an account of great Achievers’ lives, the wonders of nature and the universe, which is packed with scientific facts, real life lessons, practical guidelines on the do’s and don’ts of life and the hidden spiritual powers that are ingeniously interwoven with the human ethos that are vital to your life.
