When did you first start writing?
“I have owned my own business since I was 21 years old and worked in the financial services business for over 30 years. 10 years ago, I was speaking publicly and discovered I could make people laugh and cry, while introducing concepts and ideas in an entertaining fashion. I founded the Wealth and Wisdom Institute for professionals from across the country who are dedicated to informing and educating the public regarding the follies of traditional financial thinking. I first started writing because I continued to grow increasingly frustrated with the financial services business where it was all about profit.”
What are your books about?
“My first book, Learning to Avoid Unintended Consequences, published in 2003, tells of the myths and realities of traditional financial thinking as well as the ten major transfers of wealth. Sudden Impact, 2006, includes the changing demographics and unsustainable government plans that are creating an impending crisis that will touch everyone. The Defining Moment, 2009, is the thought process needed to survive in today’s financial jungle. The Family Legacy, 2006, is about creating family wealth, security, and family fulfillment.”
What advice do you have for other writers and authors in terms of publishing and marketing their books?
“Marketing and promotion is a daily event. Getting in front of people is the key – also getting endorsements. We’ve sold about 40,000 books with no marketing, only word of mouth.”
Why did you choose Infinity publishing?
“Infinity Publishing opened a new door for my career. I now have several books published by Infinity.”
