My Author career started many years ago when my first book, '101 Ways to Market Your Business' was published by leading Australian Publisher, Allen & Unwin. This book became a bestseller and iconic small business guide virtually overnight. I went on to publish 10 more books with Allen and Unwin over a 10 year period. My first personal growth and development book, 'The Me Myth' was published by Simon & Schuster, a global publisher with an incredible reputation. With changes in the publishing world, I now proudly self publish my books, all of which still focus on the world of business and personal growth and development.
My latest book is 'Someone has to be the most expensive - why not make it you?'. I spent a few years working on this book, researching the topic and really making certain that it addressed a major issue in the world of small business in particular - specifically the concept of small business poverty.
I intend to keep writing books for the foreseeable future. If you've got an idea for a book that you think needs to be written, feel free to drop me a line.
Over the last 20 years hundreds of organisations have used my books as gifts for their small business customers, conference delegrates and in promotions. If you'd like to buy any of my books in quantity drop me a line and let me know what you need – there are discounts for bulk orders and I will make sure you get the best price available!
