Short paragraph on what inspired you to write the book:
Many people can’t figure out how to break the patterns that hold them back, but seem stuck on a hamster wheel of broken habits. I wanted to encourage people by showing them simple techniques based on ancient wisdom, proven steps that can help them overcome, and allow them to make a difference where they are, and in the world at large. One person can impact the workplace, and their efforts can ripple into our global economy.
What topics in your book or background do you think book clubs would find interesting:
I’m a Certified Personality Trainer which gives me an edge on helping people pinpoint their problem areas, and enables me to help them unearth their own hidden talents. I also have over two decades of experience as a leader, and that has given me unique insights into what works and what doesn’t, but even more so, why. Finally, I regularly work with business owners and managers from all over America, and I know what employers want. I’ve also identified common mistakes leaders make when they want to motivate their employees.
Tell us about your career outside of writing and how it influences your writing:
I’m an Inspirational coach on matters of business, life, and love. No matter how we try, we can’t segregate these three aspects of who we are, and they affect us in powerful ways. I speak and teach regularly on everything from how to ace a job interview, to how to inspire employees to greater productivity. I work with people at every level, so they can set themselves up to succeed, versus allowing failure to steal their joy. But everything is wrapped in my belief that it’s never too late for a fresh start with fresh faith. We are meant to make a difference, and moving out of mediocrity into a life of real meaning is where passion and purpose collide.
Describe your style of writing:
I sprinkle expository teaching amid stories based on true events and real-life people. As an avid reader, I find I become much more engaged once a story starts, so I use a great deal of story telling in my non-fiction writing. I hope it shows the relevancy of my subject matter, and makes it more interesting to read.

Dr. Henry Cloud, John Maxwell, Stephen Covey, Max Lucado, Andy Stanley, Dave Ramsey, Eric Metaxas, Jerry Jenkins, Nicholas Sparks, Julie Perkins Cantrell, Lucille Zimmerman, and Lillian Glass. As a fellow Missourian, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Mark Twain both inspire me to show versus tell readers the topics I write on.
