Seth Francois, author of The Business of Love, stopped by for an interview.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I live in Southern California. I have a BS in Business Management, MA in Human Resources, and I am currently working on completing my doctoral degree in Business. I have over 35 years of business experience and retiring from marriage after 25 years. I now understand self love is far more important than being in love. You cannot make someone else happy, only self. You cannot rely on love only creating a foundation of personal happiness that you can choose to share with someone else.
What do you do when you're not writing?
Usually, I write music, take short walks on the beach, meditate, and spend time with friends and family.
When did your first start writing?
My whole career involved writing proposals, business plans, policies and procedures contracts, etc. I naturally gravitated to writing "A Woman's Handbook to a Successful Relationship, The Business of Love."
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?
The best book has been the Bible.
What inspired you to write this particular book?
Looking at the relationship segment, there was a need for a book from a man's perspective for a woman getting into a relationship with a man. Using business metaphors to provide insight. If you want to open a business knowing all you can about the business is helpful. This is the same with entering into a relationship with the opposite sex.
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
I enjoyed writing all the chapter, however, chapter 9- Relationship Tune Up- Love VS. Happiness and Preventing Conflict Zones. We are always placing blocks to our happiness foundation. Sometime we can love a person but not find the peace and happiness is needed to secure a healthy life. Understanding being happy is essential and that love is transitory at most, will help the reader find a light to secure a true connection.
What is best writing advice you can give?
Love, understand, and grow what with you write.
