Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The drive behind my latest book, The Entrepreneur was borne out of my addiction for entrepreneurship. I wanted to create a set of comprehensive solution for entrepreneurs, small business owners and companies involved in starting new businesses or projects to eliminate waste and increase their odds of success. As you may be aware, 75% of every new business or product fails. That sounds ridiculous but it's true. I set out on the mission for this book to provide simple concepts, tools and guidance for smart entrepreneurs and business owners to adopt in creating successful new businesses of projects.

As I already said, I'm addicted to entrepreneurship and consider myself as having a "Calling" to business. It started more than 20 years when I worked as Accountant in Nigerian banks. In addition to my Financial Control job, I also worked closely with entrepreneurs, small business owners and corporate executives who needed lease finance for their businesses. I reviewed financial reports and business plans and recommended those that met the bank's criteria for approval. I was privileged to provide useful advisory support and helped identify opportunities and threats for many. But it was incredibly heartbreaking to see business with what could be perceived as good “business plans” fail in the market. Well many of them did and several investors’ money was put at risk.

In 2006, the entrepreneur in me wouldn't let go; so I quit my bank job in search of "Greener Pastures in United Kingdom. I had no clue about what I was going to meet, but somehow I was confident that things would work out greatly for me. I landed first in London and worked briefly before relocating to Cambridge in 2007. While in Cambridge, I was hit by the 2008 global economic recession and I lost my Financial Controller job. Being made available to the market I knew it was time to answer my “Entrepreneurial Calling." So I went back to school to study Business Coaching with the Number One Coaching School in UK. In 2011, I became President and Founder of my first business, Cognition Global Concepts, which offers business growth coaching and support for entrepreneurs and corporate organizations to accelerate growth.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love reading good business and inspirational books. I read average of twenty to thirty a year, in addition to between five to 10 audio books, business magazines and newsletters from trusted sources. As a life-long learner, I realized early in my career that knowledge was worthless if it cannot be shared with others. Knowledge sharing either through training, workshop or writing inspires me. I blog, write articles and publish newsletters. I started publishing my articles with EzineArticles and a few other article sites in 2010. Three years later in 2013, EzineArticles awarded me a Diamond Author status, which was incredible. With my business coming alive in 2011, I set up a monthly newsletter and started sharing useful information with clients and prospects. Presently I manage my own blog site, The Entrepreneur Space on Wordpress and contribute to LinkedIn knowledgebase. I think that writing a book was not a priority for me until 2013 when I published my first book, The ART of Achievement and Fulfilment. But being an Indie author right now, has proven as one of the most authentic ways of sharing useful knowledge across a wider network of people.

Many new businesses and products fail not because their founders did not build exactly what they wanted. Very often these founders waste too much time, money and effort in planning and building something that nobody wanted to buy.
