He aims to influence kids by teaching and speaking on the four pillars of his ASAP model and firmly believes that by getting our children to use the formula as a base to overcome obstacles they will ultimately grow into more happy and successful adults. (www.amazon.com)
JB: I have spent much of my adult life studying “Self Development" and "Human Potential." During this period I have come to the conclusion that growing up is one of the hardest things to do and many of the problems that adults face is directly related to the obstacles they experienced while they were kids. My inspiration for becoming a children's author stems from my desire to help in overcoming the adversities associated with being a kid.
BBB: How did you come up with the idea for your book, Big Feats?
JB: I created a developmental formula called the ASAP Model and it represents Attitude, Self Development, Action and Persistence. This model addresses four key areas that the child can use along with a formula on how to tackle the obstacles they may encounter on an everyday basis.
JB: Big Feats will help kids to discover that they have control over many of the challenges they encounter. The book will show them that they have options in how they deal with the issues they face.
BBB: Are you currently working on other books?
JB: Yes, I am working on two other books and they both revolve around activities that I enjoy doing with my children and the family experience.
JB: Getting published is not easy but it is possible as long as you're willing to put the necessary time into it. Always remember WHY you wrote the book and use this as inspiration to do whatever is necessary to see the project to completion. Never give up!
