The Question Glenn Enjoys Explaining:
"Why'd you write a book? what's in the book that would make it any difference? Like why should anyone even buy your book?"
Answer: I started writing down the rules back in the eighties, I still have the same book. And as a situation arose throughout the years, I would recite the rule; don't do this for this reason, do this for that reason or whatever.
And when Covid came along, I thought, that this would be a great thing after the next. To have a book, travel and speak about it. I buckled down in March of 2020 and started writing. I decided that I was going to write only on the weekend, Saturday and Sunday, and I'd write 2000 words. Why would they read it? I'm kind of a worker bee just like everybody else. And why should they buy the book? Because I'm not academic on selling, these are street-learned things that I learned everyday.
“Before I stand in the lobby in every customer, I go through my book, my phone, my iPad or whatever. I associate the face to the name." – Glenn Poulos
