Authorpreneur Podcast #13: Amanda Greaves, author of The Chameleon Diaries
In this episode of The Authorpreneur Podcast, I talk with Amanda Greaves, a motivational speaker, coach, and author of The Chameleon Diaries: Designing A Life Worth Changing For, a book about uncovering your true identity and discovering the path to self-acceptance. Through trials and tribulations, downfalls and triumphs, Amanda had been traveling through life with a set of values that didn’t necessarily belong to her, and wasn’t aware of their misplacement until she had had one too many breakdowns and heart wrenching dramas fall within the pages of her life’s story. When she started to fully understand that she had the option to break the repeated habits that had been holding her back, she stepped into her natural empowerment, released herself from the stronghold of limiting beliefs, and shifted her direction towards a clear and more fulfilling course of soulful driven passion and purpose. Amanda’s mission is to reach as many women and men that are carrying similar stories to hers and show them there is a way past the feelings of being stuck, unworthy, and not enough. She believes in leading with her heart, and that is why she puts her heart into everything she does. When she started to peel back the layers of uncertainty and doubt while writing The Chameleon Diaries, she discovered the truth behind all the masks she had been wearing for so many years, and fell in love with herself, her process, and the desire to help others uncover their own destiny and reach their wildest dreams.

Authorpreneur Podcast Episode #10: Tzachi Ozeri, author of Monk vs. Monkey Mind: Becoming Aware of Your Thoughts to Manifest the Life of Your Dreams
In this episode of The Authorpreneur Podcast, I talk with Tzachi Ozeri, the author of Monk vs. Monkey Mind: Becoming Aware of Your Thoughts to Manifest the Life of Your Dreams. Tzachi doesn’t regard himself as a Guru or a know all. His ideas and life approach were forged by living life to the max and trying to make sense of it all. His writing is honest with no excess or words without a real meaning. For 38 years, Tzachi felt lost; he then started looking for how he got to where he was, and changed his focus from the 'why' to the 'how' to help him reprogram his subconscious and create new habits for a new reality. He realized how he inherited his struggle with addiction from his parents, which further led to him struggling with relationships and having a consistent, stable roof over his head.  One of those times he became homeless, and was sleeping in a van, overthinking his situation. He realized that he was blaming everyone else but himself for getting to this stage. He looked at himself in the mirror and realized the apple didn't fall far from the tree. His struggle became his passion, and he uncovered multiple ways to overcome his personal struggles and heal his past. His books share his story and he hopes to inspire and help those who struggle to find their path. If you like a good story of self-discovery and redemption from someone who turned their story into a book, then I really think that you’re going to enjoy this episode.

Authorpreneur Podcast Episode #9: Cindy Carrillo, author of Finding Your Nxt
In this episode of The Authorpreneur Podcast, I talk with Cindy Carrillo, the author of Finding Your Nxt: When You’re Ready for the Life You Really Want. Cindy received her Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Denver and in 1986 founded Work Options Group, a leading provider of Work/Life solutions for employees of Fortune 500 companies. She built and led that company over twenty years until intuition told her it was time to sell. She put the business up for sale just days before the beginning of the financial crisis of 2008, sold it to a Fortune 100 company before the end of the year, and stayed on as its CEO into 2009. After the sale, Cindy used her more than forty years of business experience—including private enterprise, retail, nonprofit, and government sector work—to start two new ventures: Nxt Business Coaching and CC Blue Ranch. The combination of these two led to the creation of a unique coaching experience, “The Immersion,” where clients join Cindy at her ranch for a two-day deep dive into formulating a plan for the next transformational phase of their lives—what Cindy calls “Finding Your Nxt.” And, of course, Cindy uses her book and author status to grow her business and help more people.

Authorpreneur Podcast Episode #2: Jason Wolbers, author of Power of a Positive Mindset
In this episode of The Authorpreneur Podcast, I talk with Jason Wolbers, the author of The Power of a Positive Mindset. Starting at a young age, Jason learned how important it was to have a positive mindset in his personal and business life. He’s been in direct sales his entire life and started as a sales rep at 18, fresh out of high school. Despite his age, he was the number one salesperson in his company (with around 150 representatives) for two years at the ages of nineteen and twenty.  He was consistently outselling people who had been in the industry for five, ten, fifteen, and even some of them over twenty years. Some of them were more than twice his age. Why did he outsell people with far more sales ability and knowledge? It was because he took the time to learn and develop success principles and was disciplined in living by what he was learning.  Jason has always believed that champions are made behind the scenes, not in the limelight. He was willing to do what most people wouldn’t and constantly studied sales, psychology, and personal development. Jason has compiled his knowledge and wisdom into his best-selling book, The Power of a Positive Mindset.  In this episode, Jason and I discuss personal development, motivation, impostor syndrome, and overcoming self-doubt. If you’re interested in learning more about how Jason has leveraged his book into his business including motivational speaking engagements, then you’re really going to enjoy this episode.
