1. What Inspired You to Write This Book?

A. Originally, the Bourne movies in the early 2000’s inspired the ideas of the book, but what motivated me to write the book was my desire to create something that would help my typical coaching client who is asking questions about how to reach their potential, or make significant shifts in their lives so they can live with more meaning and purpose.

2. What will your readers gain from your book?

A. My readers will be challenged to think about their lives and consider the gap between where they currently are and where they want to be. They will be introduced to 5 perspectives that when taken together will give them clarity about who they are and where they want to go in their lives, providing actionable steps to take to help them realize their new goals.

3. What was your unique quotient for this project?

A. I write like I talk but because I can’t sit and have a conversation with everyone over a coffee, Vantage Point encapsulates much of what I would want to share with anyone asking life’s big questions, such as Who am I or Why am I here? Sometimes people need a third party, a fresh set of eyes and ears then provide solid inspiration and direction to help them achieve all they hope for. I hope to provide that in Vantage Point. 

4. How did becoming an author help in your brand/business?

A. Becoming an author has given me an additional resource to support my clients through the coaching process. It has helped to expand the ways I can connect with my clients. Becoming an author also gives me more authority in my field which leads to more opportunities to share my message. 

5. What are your future plans as an author?

A. My goals include adding an audio book and writing an additional reading resource for my book, maybe a workbook or daily reader or devotional. I anticipate taking more speaking engagements and simply having more conversations about what it means to live a better story. I hope to grow my coaching business as I create products and services tailored around Vantage Point and the specific needs of my clients.
