The Power of Prioritization (Author Interview)

The Power of Prioritization looks like a great motivational and take-charge kind of book.  What type of readers did you write the book for?
-I wrote this book for individuals who want to do more with their lives and improve their situation with focus and persistent actions.            

How long did it take you to write The Power of Prioritization?
-It took me about 6 and a half weeks of drafting. editing, researching and revising.

What inspired you when writing The Power of Prioritization?   
-I was mostly inspired by my own desire to achieve more in life and in business. I have so many hustles and activities I do on a day to day basis that I knew that sometimes I needed to Prioritize instead of always trying to do everything at once.

-In addition, I was also greatly inspired by my father who passed. He was so revered by his peers and one of my main goals in life is to be as loved and respected as he was. He was a professor, consultant, businessman and more. Regardless of all that he still made time to watch tv shows with us, show us classic music, take us to basketball games on weekends, and take us to workout early in the mornings before school. I always admired his time management skills and how he would prioritize us in his busy everyday life.

How did you come up with the ideas in The Power of Prioritization?
-So I came up with the ideas in The Power of Prioritization by reading other self help gurus and authors. One of my biggest inspiration from ideas for this book came from Daymond John he’s the author of Power of Broke and is most famous for being a judge on the show Sharktank. In his book that I picked up called Rise and Grind he breaks down his processes for his days and how he could quantify his activity to grow his brand to become the legendary FUBU which was one of the most popular streetwear brands in the 90s and black owned.

In addition, I also took into consideration my own experiences such as how in basketball & lifting you must prioritize certain skills and muscles everyday. You don’t just lift chest every single day and you do not just go in and work on right hand dribble moves every single day. You must prioritize certain skills each and every day or workout in order to be a more complete player.

Just like how in business you cannot spend all day making calls. You must also spend some time to do input information for applications, file paperwork; create time to go to lunch with potential clients, doing work related research, and pursue professional development.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Power of Prioritization?

-One challenge I had was deciding exactly how much detail and specific info I wanted to put into the book. This is because too specific info might not translate so well for many readers but I also did not want to make my ideas too broad to almost seem like common sense and a waste of time.
So in summary I did not want to cut out an audience but at the same time wanted to make sure almost any individual from any profession or walk of life could take something from the book.

Why did you decide to become a writer?
-I decided to become a writer because I like to convey my thoughts in a meaningful way as to help the next individual navigate issues or ideas that I might have come across/have been thinking about.

What do you like to do when not writing?
-When I’m not writing I enjoy running basketball workouts for youth through my training organization EZ Buckets Basketball. In addition to offering top notch skill work I also teach the kids about college and take them to college visits, college basketball games, we do video breakdowns of our games and professional development such as our Leadership & Success Camp in partnership with RAYA Foundation.

-I also greatly enjoy helping people with their finances and putting their mind at ease by knowing exactly what money will be coming from where during retirement, diversifying their portfolios, creating income saving strategies and just getting their financial homes in order.

Where can readers find out more about your work?
-Readers can find out more about my work on Amazon!
