What are you working on next?
This is My China! The story of my life in China and insights that I have gained. The story begins with my early fascination with China and runs through my six years of living and teaching in China. The book describes my early exposure to and fascination with China, recaps the Vietnam War and the Nixon-Mao Era, discusses the influence of China on Colonial America and the history of Sino-American trade and relations. I studied for my MA in International Relations while living in China and the book contains some of my MA papers. If you have not lived in China, you cannot understand China. I do hope to bring some insight to readers.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am a small business entrepreneur and consultant. I also dabble in the stock market. I made some money and lost some. It has been interesting and educational. I became fascinated by the new marijuana industry. I studied the industry and set a strategy for profiting from trading and investing. People began asking me for advice, so I started a newsletter. This book is compiled from the newsletter and is actually the initial guide that I send to new subscribers.
Learn the basics of the expanding marijuana industry. This guide describes the medical, personal, hemp, CBD, and other sectors. Due to timeliness issues, it does not get much into specific stock recommendations. Purchasers will be subscribed to the Cannabis College newsletter and the under-construction subscription web site.This guide is meant as an introduction to the continuous publication.
I firmly believe that there is no reason why any group, organization or committee should leave a meeting without having a 3 Point Plan to resolve a problem. In the same way, all Managers should always have a 3 Point Plan to improve the management of the organization, product quality or overall efficiency.
If you are a candidate for office, you will always have a 3 Point Plan for any issue.
