BOLD: What inspired you to write Effortless Entrepreneur?
NF: Believe it or not, it stemmed from an Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) event in Las Vegas. One of the speakers was talking about the importance of writing a book, and how everybody who has written a book says they wish they had done it 10 years earlier. Omar had been in that same breakout session, and we started thinking about what we were going to write about. We realized we had all these crazy stories about getting into business, and we knew we could talk about our experiences. It was a three-year process from that EO event to making the book into a real, living product.
