The Leader (Author Interview)

 




 https://www.gregoryphilipniven.com/


The Leader looks like an exciting management book.  Can you tell us a little about it?

Definitely. I wanted to take what I saw in the managers around me and distinguish the delineation between leadership and management. All too often they are almost seen as the same thing, but if you can realize the difference between the two, then you can really harness the opportunity to learn more about yourself, and get a better insight in the leaders and managers you work with.

It’s also important to point out the fact that everyone is a leader and manager. A mum at home with the kids does a great deal of management, structuring kids days and making sure they stay on some level of tasking is no easy task. The for how a child becomes who they are, I see my daughter and I can see she is a mirror of my wife, leaders develop other people in a similar fashion to who they are, or where they are going. You can find leadership in everything you do.

What I do in this book is highlight every avenue of leadership and management in my life, and I use the experiences of others to reflect on this. The book is also there to help you become a better person, my intention is to add value, if it does that, I believe that the objective of the book is being fulfilled.

 

How long did it take you to write The Leader?

This book took 6 years from start to today getting the book out there in the market. A long journey, there was never a perfect straight line, it was up and down but I was consistent in my milestones, I set out clear expectations of myself and made sure I took the time to press forward. This book has definitely helped me to write and collate a story for my next books more effectively.

 

What inspired you when writing The Leader?   

Bad leaders. People who I saw as bad influences, they taught me so much, when I would talk with colleagues about managers or leaders people would focus on the bad points. I was able to look at these bad point and use them as lessons. The same for their good points, use them as lessons. ‘I either win, or I learn’.

 

What will readers get out of your book?

To understand that they themselves are leaders and managers, we all are. It is important to realize that we all dabble in this area of people movement. There is no perfect way of doing something, but there are perspectives and opportunities to give people direction. ‘It doesn’t matter so much as to where you stand, what matters is in which direction you are headed’. My readers will get a different perspective on leadership and management, and the intention is that you get a boost to your own development. This book is employed to help you learn, to be better, to use some of the tools and concepts in this book to help you either build momentum or find direction.

Amazing Master Bathroom (Author Interview)

  



https://nasoni.com/

Your book looks like a great guide to improving your bathroom.  Can you tell us a little more about the fountain faucet?

We use our bathroom faucets multiple times a day, but they were not designed to meet our needs. The downward flow from the faucet makes it difficult to get a drink, rinse after brushing teeth, or to wash your face without cupping hands and splashing water over the counter, while chronic health conditions like arthritis, spinal cord injury, or vertigo can make using it even harder. Using glasses that don’t get washed often is unsanitary, and disposable cups pollute our environment.


Today people use their bathroom sink for a variety of functions. Current uses are to drink water, wash your face, shave, brush your teeth, eye wash, etc. To do this people cup their hands, use a glass or disposable cup, or crane their head under the faucet. Sticking your head under the faucet is uncomfortable, drinking glasses in the bathroom collect germs, and cupping your hands to wash your face results in water splashing on the counter. 

The Nasoni Fountain Faucet is the patented combination of a bathroom faucet and a water fountain, which brings the functionality of a water fountain to the bathroom.

Simply rotate the fountain lever to turn off the downward flow and create a water fountain to:

  1. Get a drink of water
  2. Take a pill or vitamin
  3. Rinse after brushing teeth
  4. Rinse shaving cream 
  5. Rinse facial cleanser / wash face
  6. Use it as an eyewash, particularly helpful during allergy season
  7. Give hair a light rinse
  8. Fill a water bottle or other item that traditionally won’t fit under a faucet
  9. Simultaneously save water to benefit the planet 

 

How were the examples and images taken in the book?

There can be several reasons for remodeling your bathroom – some may be as simple as you’re not happy with how it is.  It may have been many years since it was built or last renovated and is outdated. Or maybe it was designed to meet the needs of someone else, and now needs more storage space.  Or, perhaps circumstances dictate a remodel, such as the desire to improve efficiency and sustainability.

So the examples and images taken in the book were selected to improving your quality of life and finally getting the master bathroom you deserve, or simply creating an eco-friendlier home.

Invention Stories (Author Interview)

  



https://www.amazon.com/dp/B096N24VRY/


Invention Stories looks like an interesting invention/biography book.  Can you tell us a little about it?

Invention Stories...Tales from the Inventor is a collection of 35+ Invention Stories shared by their Inventors...in Their Own Words.

 

Any plans to turn it into a series?

We expect to launch our book...Women Inventors July 14th.

 

How long did it take you to write Invention Stories?

It’s been in the back of my mind since I began collecting invention stories a decade ago.

 

What inspired you when writing Invention Stories?   

As a failed inventor, I wanted to learn how to increase my chances of success.  Who better to learn from than by those who have already invented?  What would the inventors say is the most productive use of their time, money and what should be avoided?  Essentially, what advice would they give?

When I looked online, I couldn’t find a website that shared invention stories.  So, we purchased InventionStories.com and started collecting and sharing invention stories.  I’ve tried hard to build a website but am not a Seach Optimization Expert, so there’s never been much traffic.  I believed creating a book to sell on Amazon would help these stories...stay alive.

When you ask what inspired me when writing Invention Stories...Tales from the Invention was believing it would help people invent smarter. 

 

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Invention Stories?

Information Overload.  So much to learn, what should you spend your time/energy on.

Nurses are Nuts (Author Interview)


 




https://www.amazon.com/dp/1645847780/

Nurses are Nuts looks like an interesting look into nursing.  Can you tell us a little about the book?

The book talks about all of the unnecessary things that nurses do for doctors, and many of the other hospital disciplines. Nurses routinely discuss how we do everyone else's job, while getting no credit for it, but all of the blame falls on us if something goes wrong. The book tries to point all of this out to nurses in hopes that nurses will one day stop and think and try to make changes.


How long did it take you to write Nurses are Nuts?

It took me about 4 or 5 months to write the book.

 

What inspired you when writing Nurses are Nuts?

I have been a nurse for over 20 years and go through what every other nurse goes through with. My inspiration came from wanting to make a change.

 

What will readers get out of your book?

Readers will get what I am talking about due to the fact that they go through everything I am talking about. In other words, I think every nurse will agree with what I am saying because everything I talk about is what nurses experience, and people who are not in nursing will get insight on what nurses truly experience.

 

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Nurses are Nuts?

Not really, everything pretty much flowed because it is what many nurses and I experience everyday.

 

Can you tell us a little about your background?

I have a bachlor's degree in criminal justice. My early thoughts was to become a lawyer because law was something that my dad liked. But after getting a job as a security guard in a hospital, a male nurse started talking to me about nursing and showed me what nurses do and I became interested.

 

Where can readers find out more about your work?

My Facebook buisness page is https://www.facebook.com/aelmarketing and there I frequently post short passages that reference what I discuss in the book and also inform readers where they can purchase the book.

Some People Will Some People Won't (Author Interview)

   



https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0949R3718


Some People Will, Some People Won’t looks like a great motivational book.  Can you tell us a little about it?

           

This book is the sum of what I’ve learned from the old me. It is the story of my transformation. From worthless loser to creative entrepreneur. We all go through rough periods in our lives. We learn and come out stronger from them. I’m just sharing mine with advice along the way for you to identify to it and overcome your dark times. Although, this book isn’t made for the faint of heart. I’m literally talking you down the whole book. Nahh, it’s not that bad! It is not a mean book, though! Simply an in-your-face speech to overcome your nonsense mindset, wake the hell up & live a better life! You won’t regret it! I’m not even expecting to make money off this book, it just needed to come out of my system and it would mean the world to me if it could help you get through a rough period of your life.

 

How long did it take you to write Some People Will, Some People Won’t?

 

It took around a week! It really needed to come out of my system. I’m used to writing screenplays for TV and Films and most of the time ideas could literally float in the back of my brain for months before I hit a single key, then, out of nowhere, I would just write all of it super-fast. That’s what happened with the writing of this book. So yeah, it took around 7 days. Like, non-stop writing days fueled with coffee!

 

What inspired you when writing Some People Will, Some People Won’t?   

 

Things that made me learn the hard way and how I overcame the nonsense mindset I was in a couple years back. Having transformed myself on the span of a year and inspired many people around me to also change their life made me want to write my story down. I thought that I could at least try to help one more person on this planet. My story isn’t an epic tale of a soldier such as Rambo. I’m a normal guy like you. Anyway, what does being a normal guy means? Back to earth. In sum,

I Was a Teenage Know Nothing (Author Interview)

 






https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08W3MTJJJ/  

I Was a Teenage Know Nothing looks like an exciting story.  Can you tell us a little about it?

It's packed with a lot of crazy things for sure.  Everything about it is true.  Me and the M.T.C. or Movie Theater Club were hitting our lest few teenage years together back in the mid-1990's.  Most everything made its way into the book.  Struggles like being brave enough to date the beautiful young ladies of the time.  One of us came to the realization that he was homosexual.   I had a girlfriend who had been sexually abused by her stepfather.  Beer, cigarettes, drugs, partying, car races, reckless motorcycle riding, and a gnarly motorcycle crash.  You name it, its in there.  Conflicts?  Yup.  Resolutions?  Most of the time.

 

Any plans to turn it into a series?

It was originally going to be one big book but I decided to turn it into two.  The second book will be out in 2022.  A sequel called "I Was A Teenage Know Something."     

 

How were the illustrations done in I Was a Teenage Know Nothing?

They're great, right?  Well, I knew the story was good.  I also knew illustrations could only make it better.   So I searched high and low on the internet and found several artists to help out.  They will have some of their works in the sequel book as well.   I would give them an idea and they would run with it.  For example I had one image I wanted captured where I wanted to see my old motorcycle, a Yamaha Midnight Virago, turned into a character.  A physical representation.  Yamaha is a Japanese company so she needed to be Japanese.  She turned out to be something of a witch because the word Virago, back in the day, meant Banshee or evil lady of the night.  That I had a special "Midnight" version of the bike solidified the idea even more.   She's in the book wearing a black dress with gold jewelry.  A gorgeous and extremely imaginative piece.  There are over 30 well crafter images in the book.  Even some comic book style pages with panels.  Not a graphic novel.  There are so many illustrations in children's books.  Why not have some in my teenager book?
