How to Make A Smile Your Calling Card and Live A Life of PURE JOY!    


WHAT is self-improvement? WHY work at it?

I have spent a lifetime addressing just those questions. First from the perspective of my business and commercial activities, then in my personal life too. 

   I realised early on in fact, that the principles and practices of successful living apply equally in both personal and entrepreneurial pursuits. Get it right in one and you’ve got the winning formula for the other. Create a happy life for yourself and you’re well placed to help others to create happy lives too. Lives based on the simple principles of free thought and the power of self-determination which I myself practice. 

   It is these characteristics which I emphasise in vivid fashion in my latest book in my ‘successful living’ series. 

   In The Road To Joyful Living, I set out to encourage, inspire and amuse you with my gloriously original views on self-improvement. With my trademark blend of real life experiences, professional insights, personal views and fun stories, I identify exactly why and how personal development will work for you! 

   But the book is more than just another guide to the principles and practices of self-improvement. It is quite different. Exceptional in fact. Why? 

   As an entrepreneur, I do not deal in theory. I’ve been involved in a host of trade sectors, an encyclopedia of different enterprises and just about every self-employed situation imaginable. These experiences brought me into close and personal relationships as an adviser and confidant. I saw first hand how decisions and strategies relative to people’s businesses impacted on their personal lives and vice versa. I learned that clients valued my input as much, or more so, for how it would influence their personal lives and relationships as for the commercial considerations. They valued my integrity and sought my counsel on that basis.

It is these experiences of helping people to live at greater peace with themselves and in harmony with the world which lie at the heart of The Road To Joyful Living– and inspired me to write it. 

   As I write with the authority of one who has ‘been there, seen it, done it’, I know that bettering yourself should, first and foremost, be an enjoyable endeavour. I assert that it makes simple sense to make fun and enjoyment central to your existence; not a peripheral experience to fit in occasionally or when other demands permit. I insist therefore that you be generous and have fun while working to improve yourself! I urge you to do just that, every minute of every day and in everything you do! 

   My motto is to, “Live life, laugh and love!” – and become a better person as a result. The Road To Joyful Living shows you how.  

   This is a serious book of course but I’ve made it an entertaining and fun read too. I believe that you’ll love it. I’ve been told that there’s no other book on the subject comes close to matching my unique take on life. As D.M. (full name available) of San Antonio, Texas enthuses – “ … as good, or better, than any of the books I have read by the so called ‘masters’ of personal development and success books/training.”

I am essentially introvert, so get much of my energy from being alone. I hate small talk and large groups. I'd rather listen and think than speak, and write rather than talk. I rarely answer the phone. Fortunately the online world suits me, I can attract an audience and connect with readers while still spending time alone ... and writing! As a young man it took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of triers will prevail. After several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay! I achieved success as a Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional. I coined the term 'creative solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it trouble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies. Today I host my 'Wake Up Leisure and Learning Breaks', personal mentoring and business guidance, in the calm and tranquility of the sunny south of Portugal and indulge my passion for writing. I am the author of the mystery novel 'Too Early For A Glass Of Wine?' and several best selling books in the self-help, business and successful living genres.
