What motivated you to become an indie author?
I started many businesses in my life and some have failed and some never got off the ground like I wanted them to. The day I found an online business model that worked for me, I was so excited that I needed to share it with everyone I knew. Then I found out thats not enough people, I started writing a little 50 page insert to pass around. It turned into a 200 page story of my life story of trials and tribulations and in turn it became a great book story to tell. Big house publishers didn't give me the time of day. One year later I used my online business tactics found in my book for my book. And Indie was the way to go. I have a chapter called. AEIOU; Amazingly Everything Is Online, Universally. I followed my own teachings and it lead me to finding everything can be done online, even publishing and marketing a book. I love this tech stuff.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that the day before was just a stepping stone. I knew nothing the day before. I am closer to The Almighty every day He says 'get up my child and try again.' Traditionally this answer might be family and getting goals done, which is true. but it fails in comparison to how you were granted one more day!
Every entrepreneur needs guidelines to follow before they can become a leader themselves. 2012's Honestly, The Time is Now 2.0! dives into how people use the power of the internet to chase that ever so elusive often mythical American Dream. 'Now' is the time to start or enhance your online presence. See how an average Joe used the internet to change his life around.
