Business author Christopher Wright brings more than 25 years of experience in the fields of investing, finance, marketing, sales, and real estate to his books. He believes that if people can find the thing they love and do it in a profitable way, they will never "work" a day in their lives.
His personal finance and career guides are all designed to give readers simple and actionable advice to realize their goals and to fulfill their potential.
Although he holds a BA in Business Administration, the bulk of Wright's experience comes from his activities as an entrepreneur. "I have made most of the mistakes I caution my readers not to repeat," he says. "Experience really is the best teacher, but she can be a very harsh taskmistress. If I can warn someone off a bad and potentially expensive choice, I've done my job."
Wright came to writing as many in his field do, through personal speaking appearances. "I was fortunate enough to be asked to participate in leadership and management events," he said. "Through those speaking engagements, I had the opportunity to pull my ideas together and really look at my own business philosophies."
The exercise proved to be a powerful one, helping the already successful Wright to further fine tune his existing ventures. "I realized how important it is for business people to never stop learning and evaluating their techniques," he said. "The last thing you want is to get stale, to lose your edge to outdated habits and ways of thinking."
Now, in addition to his ongoing business ventures, Wright makes time daily to work on his books. He envisions a steady stream of publications in the future. "I didn't expect writing to help keep me sharp and competitive," he said, "but I get a lot out of these books and hope they have the same benefit for my readers."
