Author Q&A: American Dream: Interviews with Industry-Leading Professionals by Jason Navallo
Deborah Bailey: Welcome to the Secrets of Success blog, Jason. Please share what your book is about.
Jason Navallo: Glad to be here, Deb. This book features in-depth interviews with six of the nation's top professionals in the Financial Advisory, Real Estate, Sports, Homecare and Medical Staffing, Hospitality, and Translation industries. The interviews are primarily focused around their early lives, and the habits they've formed that have contributed to their success, in business and in life.
Deborah: The interviews have a lot of in-depth information. Any challenges in writing this book?
Jason: Finding the right people to interview was definitely the most challenging part. It required a lot of research, because I wasn't just looking for any successful person to interview. That's easy. I was targeting specific industries, and I was targeting the top professionals in those industries. That narrowed it down to just a few names.
Deborah: Do you have a favorite writing environment?
Jason: I like to write at night. I find it to be the best time for me to concentrate and think clearly.
Deborah: What inspires you to do the work you do?
Jason: For me, it's about knowing that every day, somewhere around the world, someone's day can be uplifted by something I've created. That my writing can have a positive impact on other people's lives. That inspires me, and that's why I write.
Deborah: I think this book is very motivational for entrepreneurs. Who do you think will benefit most from reading it?
Jason: I think anyone can benefit from reading this book, even if you're not someone looking to have a very successful career. I believe it gives a fresh perspective of things, and provides you with tips on how to lead a balanced and rewarding life.
Deborah: That's great, Jason. Where can people find your book?
