Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The book "StartUP SOAR Coaching" came out of my teaching of an intensive course in entrepreneurship at the University of Pisa. That course was attended by over 500 students in the last five years. I also taught the course at the University of Pisa International MBA program for three years. I was not a teacher of academic, I am an entrepreneur, but my view is that one has to put business into action fast to learn it so my book focused on experiential learning. I only decided to write the book after I saw some of my former student have success and could see evidence that what I exposed them to in the course stuck and made a difference in launching them into the entrepreneurial journey.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The world is a mess, way too much to do, I believe entrepreneurs are the ones that make the greatest difference in every economy so its inspires me to get going each do and pick a problem to solve to make the world better for everyone.
