Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I did not grow up with the idea of becoming an author. In 2003 I was the CEO of a training company that I (and two partners) founded 18 months earlier. By running it I mean running it into the ground at a fast pace. I had no formal experience with what needed to happen, partners who had split early on, lots of debt, and a huge passion to deliver these exceptional, life altering trainings.

One night after a set of circumstances pissed me off, I got angry with God. I was yelling and cursing saying things like "This was supposed to be my lifes purpose, why are you making it so hard" and "I am making such a profound difference for people, why aren't you helping out here" and that my favorite author "Neale Donald wrote a book, makes tons of money and a huge difference with people, why are you making this so hard for me." Then I went to bed, mind you there was a lot more colorful language in my dialog.

The next morning I woke just having drempt of the title for my book "You're Hired! Interview skills to get the job". In two days I wrote the entire framework of the book and 16 months later I had published it. I am clear that this book was not my idea. Writing a book was never on any list I made. Go figure.

From there I started a podcast about jobs and careers and have been speaking at Colleges and Universities to kids on how to interview. I love it. I truly love this work and everything surrounding it.

My expertise in jobs and careers comes from my 12 years as a recruiter and having interviewed thousands of people, hiring hundreds for all sizes of companies, from New York to Santa Clara.

I have had many jobs as well. I worked for the President of the US, a Senator, on an ambulance, as a waiter, art salesman, rock band rodie, and many more careers that I think give me insight into work and what its about.

Tracking Books on

I subscribed to Amazon Advantage a month or two after my book came out and I have found it to be the best way to get readers to purchase copies. Buyers are able to find my book using the tools that Amazon provides. I know that folks are buying my book who did not hear about it from me.

Checking sales with is a good tool as well as I am able to see where my ranking is without having to go to my Amazon page. Looking at the page is…

Hey Lorne!
Thanks for the invite. I see you've bounced around looking for a home jobwise in the past as well. I had just over thirty jobs by the time I was 35. Had you witnessed my song and dance routine I put forth at each interview, WE may have been partners! lol I always got the job. I usually did so by lying through my teeth. Minor detail. I always learned the job later and did well.
I do my own thing now, as do you, and thank God! That whole employee thing just never took root with me.
Take care,
