Smashwords Interview

What’s the motivation behind the book, The 50-60 Something Start-up Entrepreneur?
The concept of writing an entrepreneurship book for people over 50 has been lingering in my mind for some time now. I’ve been a silent witness to people in their 50’s losing their jobs not because of any wrong-doing, but simply because of their age and the salary they were earning. Companies saw firing good people as a means of reducing cash outflow.

It wasn’t until this hit close to home when a family member was made redundant two days after her 51st birthday did I realize that people around me were also being affected by this forced job exodus and the subsequent implications this held for this demographic that I knew I had to take action.

The 50—60 Something Start-up Entrepreneur is my way of helping to get people back on their feet and thriving vs just trying to survive.
What is your writing process?
When I make the decision to write a new book, before I even begin to sit down to write the outline, I let the concept of the book stew in my mind for a while. This could be a few weeks or a few months. As the important topics to cover come to me, only then do I start to put ideas on paper.

Since my books are about business, I start by asking myself, ‘what does my audience want and what do they need to know to get to the end goal?’. I also ask, what do they need, yet don’t know they need and I write that down too.

Once I feel that I can take a person from start to finish, I flesh out the full outline, set a deadline and I’m ready to go. I may not write each chapter in order, I go with what I feel like writing and then sit down and write for 90-minute blocks of time.

When I write, some days I’ll get started at 5:00 in the morning and other times, I’ll dedicate 3 hours on a Saturday or Sunday. If I haven’t made the progress I want as the deadline approaches, then I may put in 4-5 hours over the weekend.
