Promoting and selling my book has definitely been more difficult than I thought it would be. There are many false prophets in this business… just trying to make a quick buck.
What does your typical day look like?
I don’t really have a typical day. The past few weeks I have travelled to different places and lived in different ways… from camping … to hotels … to staying with friends. At the moment I am in Germany exploring the black forest. I get bored easily and I need change.
If you were to start again, and could change one thing, what would it be?
If I become a great success I wouldn’t change a thing… because all my experiences will have led to my success…. Maybe I would have avoided getting my nose broken when boxing

I’m a lover and a hater … a realist and a dreamer… a contradiction. .. but that’s probably not unique … but my weird understanding of the world helped me write my book.
