About Christian Chasmer:
Growing up in a small town in Southern New Jersey, Christian always had big dreams of making an impact in the world. He was frequently mentoring younger students and teammates and always loved being in a coaching role. He knew, though, that he needed to see the world and get out of his small town to truly make a difference in people’s lives.
At the age of 18, Christian enrolled at the University of South Carolina where he studied business management and marketing. At the age of 21, he started a painting business with Young Entrepreneurs Across America where he ran a $73,000 business in 6 months and was the division sales leader. The following year, he took on a leadership role and coached and mentored 5 rookie branch managers. His team produced over $360,000 in just 6 months, earning him Executive of the year.
After College, Christian was determined to follow his passion for coaching and mentoring. He moved to Boston where he mentors inner city high school students, continues to coach students on a large scale through YEAA, and now focuses most of his attention on helping people break their limiting beliefs and maximizing their potential. Helping his mentees and students achieve their goals is his only goal.
What inspires you to write?
What inspires me to write is that I feel that I can add value to people’s lives. I want to inspire people to live life to their fullest potential and not be dragged down by their limiting beliefs. I felt compelled to write in order to help at least one person to break their limiting beliefs.
Tell us about your writing process.
I started with a “book map” where I mapped out all the important details of my topic, From there I went to an outline of the book. Then I committed to at least 5 minutes of writing every day. (5 minutes usually turned into at least 15).
What advice would you give other writers?
Just go. A finished product is better than a perfect product. You can always go back and edit but you cannot edit a blank page.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self – published using a self publishing school because I wanted the freedom of having what I wanted in my new book. I also thought I could get it to the public much faster this way.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think book publishing in the next ten years is going to mostly move digital. I am a paperback reader so that is unfortunate for me.
