Following find an interview with author Raimond Volpe.
What is the name of the book and when was it published?
Success1010 For Living, published in April 2016
What’s the book’s first line?
Success and happiness are interdependent. You need both to have true success.
What’s the book about? Give us the “pitch”.
Success1010 for Living is a guide to living your most successful life. When we are stuck in life, we feel emotionally drained, and life looks doomed. Why and from where do these feelings arise? Often, they derive from our traumatic interpretation of early childhood events. ‘Stuckburies®’ are unresolved emotional complexes – our emotional baggage buried deep within us, which inhibits us from giving our best shot at success.
The only way to shed these recurring blockages, is to take measures to become unstuck. Success1010 For Living explores how to dig deep to uncover these stuckburies® to see them for what they are, accept that they happened and why, and then take steps to move past them so they no longer hold us back.
What inspired you to write the book? A particular person? An event?
I had a major set-back in my thirties. Throughout this journey I became extremely motivated and driven to uncover why I had derailed. This book is a result of years of research and personal experience.
What’s the most distinctive thing about the main character? Who-real or fictional-would you say the character reminds you of?
The book is based off my own experiences. The most distinctive thing is that I went through a period of depression and anxiety myself, so these techniques and guides are from someone who has overcome these issues personally.
What’s the main reason someone should really read this book?
If you are feeling stuck in life, there is a way out. This book is a guide to finding the way out to achieve true success and happiness.
When did you first decide to become an author?
When I recovered from depression and anxiety, I felt that I truly had something important to share. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I did when there is hep available.
Is this the first you’ve written?
What do you do for work when you’re not writing?
I own an award-winning sales training company in Australia. What sets Dynamo Selling apart is that we have an underlying philosophy that encompasses everything we do. It is that mindset is the single most important element to being successful. It is our entire vision for existing as a company. Why? Because the mindset of your sales team is what guides their every action and we know first-hand what it’s like when someone is suffering from a poor mindset.
