Interview with Laura Atchison – Asking the right questions
Many of us are stuck in autopilot doing the same things day in and day out. Asking the same questions like what do I want for dinner, where should we go on the weekend and can I afford those shoes? These are not life changing questions, but often times we need answers to many tough life changing questions. Are you asking the right ones or are you not even asking the questions you need to?
When big problems come our way or big decisions we often tend to put ourselves in that same autopilot mode and only ask ourselves the questions that will suit the answer we want to hear or make us comfortable. If your questions are not making you uncomfortable then maybe you are asking the wrong questions. If your answer to the question “Should I quit my job?” is answerable only with a yes, no or maybe, then maybe it is the wrong question to ask.
I met Laura before she wrote this new bestseller. Since we both came from IT backgrounds we had a lot to talk about. Laura’s dream, when I met her at Author 101, was to write a book that would touch people and make a difference in their lives. I only knew her a short time, but just knew that she would do it. I wouldn’t have guessed that she would make bestseller, but after getting to know her better, I have to say, I never would have doubted if I did know her better.
Laura has run successful companies and helped others with theirs and she did it by first failing and then realizing that by asking herself the right questions and the hard questions, that she could be successful in her business life and, as it turns out, in her personal life as well.
As I often do, I focused the second part of the interview on Laura’s writing, publishing and promotional journey and Laura went into wonderful detail about exactly what she did to become a bestseller on Amazon.
I want to thank Laura for taking the time to try and help others and for her time, support and friendship. – JW
