“My first compilation book was with Les Brown. And so that was such an amazing experience that when I was approached to do the couple other ones that I was all in, I thought it was a great experience.” (02:55)

“But being a self published author and having no experience and also no real support team, I think that’s a struggle in and of itself.” (07:29)

“Well, that’s interesting because having done three different compilation books and telling kind of three different stories from my life, would it be a good idea to kind of take those three, rework them a little bit so that it’s more, you know, about the whole story and publish that as an ebook?” (15:40)
