The Heart of a CEO How I Went From the Internet Independent to Mainstream Publicity
Frequently Asked Questions about the Book
1.What made you want to write a book?
Books have been around for a very long time and they come in all different forms, shapes and sizes. Books are created for the sole purpose of building some type of knowledge. I wanted to write a book for a number of reasons. I guess one of the biggest reasons was I wanted a way to make a sufficient living and travel the world simultaneously and what better way to do this than to write a book. Back then I never thought I would write a book but opportunities come for those who seize them. Another reason is there have been so many people that ask questions about my success story. They want to know the truth behind the success and a lot of times when I do interviews, I cannot get out everything verbally but you can in writing a book. So many entrepreneurs from all walks of life understand this concept and this is why they write books. As a matter of fact, since I read hundreds of books of people inspiring me throughout the years, I guess you can say that it was like a chain reaction. I also wanted to write a book that embraced the struggles I went through on the journey to my success. The whole purpose of the book is to inspire as well as inform those that feel hopeless to become hopeful. The book is catered more towards the minority population because we have been down for so long that it is now time for us to elevate as one and claim our anticipated awards.
2.How did you get started with the Internet and Internet Marketing?
Well, I was marketing on the internet independently for a very long time now and if there was no internet, there would probably be no me. It has really been my bread and butter. If I could take just one thing with me and nothing else, it would be a laptop and an internet connection, ha! The revenue that I generated independently from the internet is what fueled everything in my career today. The internet has really opened various doors of opportunity for me that was once closed. Internet marketing technology in general has always been a huge passion of mine.
3.Where are you from and how did you come up with the brand name, "The Internet CEO"?
I'm originally from Pensacola Florida. "The Internet CEO" is simply a metaphoric name. I wanted to create a brand name that was catchy and a name that would clearly distinguish me and what I do. If you look me up on the internet, you will see that I have created a legacy of extensive literature about me and my work. Since I have been marketing independently on the internet for a very long time now, I was already well known online, way before I attained mainstream attention offline. I had already built a solid fan base independently. Since I have been online since 99', I've seen some impersonators over the years claiming that they are "The Internet CEO" but I'm the authentic creator of the brand name: "The Internet CEO".
4.What inspiring advice can you give to inspiring authors and anybody who have big dreams?
Never give up! You just have to keep pushing it to the limit. There's an old saying, "If a man is hungry enough, he will eventually find a way to eat". In terms of pursuing success, failure is always a good thing. Experience is your BEST teacher. The more you fail at something, the more you learn and the more you learn, the higher the dues that have been paid.
