How to Write, Self-Publish, and Sell Your Book in 2017

“Every human being has genius level talent. There are no chosen ones. GOD has given every single person genius level talent. You just have to find what it is that you are great at, and then tap into it.” – Jay-Z

There are two things I’ve learned to be true over the course of my life. One, everybody is a genius in some way, shape, or form. Two, every experience is one you can learn from, good or bad. So if everybody has some level of genius in them and a bunch of lessons learned they just need an outlet to share it with the world.

Turning Your Passion to Six-Figure Profits With Amber Hopson

Amber Hopson has the most unique story I’ve heard on my podcast. Amber is a hair stylist, entrepreneur, internet personality, and former major label artist. We actually take a trip from her beginnings in Compton to her success opening one of the most popular salons in the Los Angeles area.

We were supposed to mainly talk about her new book “Boss Moves: What They Didn’t Teach You in Beauty School.” We ended up discussing much more. I relate to Amber so much because I grew up in a single parent home where my mother became my first glimpse of entrepreneurship. Watching her make a way for her family, made me want to embody those same traits. Amber talks about those struggles as well as how she almost walked into a strip club, but turned around and made a better choice.

The first time I met Chinedu was in a coffee shop in New York City. We sat down and discussed ideas, but it wasn’t a typical idea chat. Chinedu ran me through his process and it was fascinating to hear how detailed he was, he truly understood the customer for each product he was running me through. Chinedu is a master at bringing an idea to life, just look at what he was able to do with HopStop.

How Divine Timing Works

This may or may not apply to you, but hear me out. I was upset when I tried so hard to pay attention in school, and got an F because I couldn’t focus. I was upset when I and my family had to move house to house when I was younger because my parents just got divorced. I was upset when I would watch TV and see clean neighborhoods, but outside my window was abandoned houses and empty crack vials. I was upset when I went to school and got teased because I was a little chubbier than most.

I was upset when I dropped out of college because my mother relied on me to be the first one with a degree. I was upset when I had to work for minimum wage, and I was broke every week. I was upset when my company failed and was embarrassed I had to move back in my mother. There have been so many times where I was extremely upset from a life challenge, resulting to me crying in the bathroom so my family wouldn’t think I was weak. Constantly asking GOD, why me?
