Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have been in the people business for 40 plus years. In leadership training, Organizational Leadership (Teamwork) Emotional Intelligence, Self Helps, I was always the fat kind being bullied at school and made fun of. That made me into a very angry person with low self esteem. But with God and my wife I was able to overcome my past, rebuild my self esteem and manage my anger and then gave back by teaching and coaching on the subject. That is what brought me to write Control the Beast. I am a speaker, trainer and coach in leadership, personal growth and emotional intelligence. I have written one book and have two more in the works.
