Mike Omar is a big fan of entrepreneurship and primarily interested in helping others create small businesses (that can eventually grow into large businesses!).
He has been self employed for over five years and has done business consulting on the side for several business start-ups.
His best advice for aspiring entrepreneurs: “Always be working on side projects outside of your regular job until the day you can quit, always make sure you are progressing, and if you haven’t done so already, START NOW!”

What inspires you to write?
All my books are non-fiction, so the reason I write is to teach. I am extremely passionate about building businesses that can change people’s lives. Building an online business provides a type of freedom that was never available before the Internet existed, so I focus exclusively on how to build online businesses.
One of my main passions is traveling and as a result of running my own online businesses, I get to travel as much as I want.
Tell us about your writing process.
I actually wrote all my books during long backpacking trips where I’d often have long stretches of time to myself.
The process I’ve used for writing my books is fairly simple: I’ve outlined the books and written out every topic I want to make sure I want to cover. Then I go through and fill them out one by one. Then I reread and revise (obsessively haha).
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
What advice would you give other writers?
Read everything! Even though I write non-fiction, I know I am a good writer because I have been an avid reader of all kinds of books my entire life. I can recognize good writing (and I am very self critical, as most writers are).
Also, after I finished writing any chapter of a book, I would go back and reread it a few days later. Usually I’d have a few things I’d want to update upon the rereading. By the time I’d reread it for the third time (a few days after that), I’d usually be very happy with the chapter, and only need to do some final refining of the writing.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Once the Amazon Kindle platform came out, I decided to give self-publishing a shot. I’m very happy that I did!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it’s impossible to predict.
