The Turning Point, How The “8” Best Practices Changed My Life This book captures my experience in the insurance and financial industry. It is worth reading as it shows the determination and will power of a youngman who overcame great challenges (for example a very serious motor vehicle accident), and in doing so became successful in his field. My success was primary attributed to the use of the 8 Best Practices of High-performing Salespeople Program developed by The Covenant Group out of Toronto Canada. So, what I have done is to simply share with the world how I used those steps to build a successful business. And any entrepreneur who is interested becoming successful can follow these same steps.
Tell us something about yourself.
Well, I live in Kingston Jamaica. I spent the last 11yrs as an insurance and financial advisor, but now I am a practicing executive business coach specializing in marketing and sales effective training. The Turning Point..”how the 8 best practices changed my life?” is my first book.
What inspired you to write this book?
My inspiration really came from the fact that, in 2008 I was forced out of the insurance and financial industry due recurrent pains that I have been experiencing as a result of my motor vehicle accident. So with my immobility and under the advice of my doctor I had slow down my activities. Realising all of this, I thought it best that I could write a book and share with persons who I did it and they can too.
How did you choose the title?
I prayed about it then, was lead to use a title that captured the essence of the book.
What obstacles did you encounter in getting this book published? How did you overcome them?
The obstacles I had to encounter included:
1) Financial, which I overcame by selling my car and use the money to finance this project.
2) Pain as a result of my accident. This I overcame by writing the book over three years.
3) Little or no experience in writing a book. This I overcame by extensive reading and research.
How did you know you wanted to be a writer? How did you get started?
I didn’t. I just believe it was in response to the challenge that I was faced with, (Not knowing if I would be able to work again). And also my will to share with others.
Did you learn anything from writing and publishing this book? What?
Definitely I learnt alot. I now have great respect for authors. This process is a very long and tedious process. Once has to have patience and commitment.
