I have just read my very own paperback book, The Scholar and The Dollar! What an amazing feeling it is seeing my name in print along with my co-author’s, Bradley Metrock.
Seeing my thoughts and experiences in a book is a powerful tool. It is both affirming and humbling. Affirming because now I know I can continue to craft more books with my own style and voice. Humbling, because there are a few minor grammatical mistakes that I didn’t catch the 100th time reading it through myself. I have given up on perfection however and am going to let that slide for now. It is also humbling because I am sure there is someone out there who won’t agree with me or who could state the same ideas more eloquently. But that’s ok with me. That is just part of being a small piece of a larger puzzle called humanity.
The book is designed to bring support, ideas, and clarity to business people and educators who want to work together to build a business model, brand, or idea. Our desire is of the truest form to help others in this endeavor. We used our own authentic voices back and forth, chapter to chapter to tell our story.
One of the things I state in the book is that no experience is ever wasted. Case in point, I am no longer partnering directly with Score Publishing, but have branched out on my own with my technology consulting firm JK Inspire. Bradley and I also got a book out of our time together. I was able to make some great connections here in Nashville and learned so much from this experience.
I hope you will check out the book to learn more about our journey together as a scholar and as entrepreneur. Our book is currently available on Amazon.com. The audiobook and iBook version will be out soon.
