1. What is the key to success as an author you have found?

I feel that the prefix to the word authority being Author gives us the authority to control our own narratives. The key to an author's success is speaking his/her truth.

2. "Woke - a Dictionary for the Conscious Mind" and "Greater Than The Game" are best-sellers! Tell us about these books and why you believe they've been such a hit?

They are hits because it comes from a real place. I wrote both books in two different seasons of my life and I’m thankful to have my story help others.

3. What was the hardest part about writing these?

Sitting still was the most difficult part for me. To allow my thoughts to manifest I had to be in a still place in my mind, body and spirit.

Absolutely not, because the purpose behind why I do/did everything that I do professionally is connected to my overall objective which is to use my platform to change the way people think.

Not at this time. I just released “Woke” a year ago!!!

Marcus Garvey/Don Miguel Ruiz.
