Non- Profit Gangbanging: An Ode to Collaboration
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Non- Profit Gangbanging: An Ode to Collaboration. I was inspired to write this from my experience working in social services and child welfare agencies throughout my career. I've always wondered, "Just how large of an impact would we have on the world, if we all worked together, built together, and thrived together?"
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I tend to write the body of the book first, and then write the introduction and the conclusion.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Who Moved My Cheese
Thou Shall Prosper
Think and Grow Rich
What are you working on now?
I'm currently working on a book that talks about the "state of lack" that many non-profit organizations find themselves in, and how to overcome that perception, in order to promote organizational efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Amazon and Kindle
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just do it!!! I wish I had just taken the time to write earlier. Once you get started, the momentum pushes you through to the finish line!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
What are you reading now?
Soft- Wired by Dr. Michael Merzenich
What’s next for you as a writer?
I plan to continue exploring innovative ways to operate and sustain non-profit agencies. I feel that if I can successfully support non-profits, I am helping to change the world for the better.
