Listen to Episode 016 with Kimanzi Constable here:
Kimanzi Constable used to deliver bread for a living, now he writes.
You can see his words in cool places such as the Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Mind Body Green, the Good Men Project, Fox News, and many more.
His books have sold over 100,000 copies and his new book, Stop Chasing Influencers, drops later this year.
On top of it all, in the last three years he's also lost 170 pounds and moved his family to the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii.
It took a lot of hard work, but Kimanzi is now living the life he once only considered to be possible in his dreams.
"Instead of giving up and getting more frustrated like I had in the past, this time I got more determined."
I caught up with Kimanzi right before he took off for speaking engagements in France, Israel, and Egypt, and he told me exactly how he felt in 2011 when he thought that the road to success was an impossible mountain to climb. After all, he was $180,000 in debt, he was 170 pounds overweight, and his marriage was falling apart.
Kimanzi credits the book "48 Days 'Till Work You Love" for helping him shift his thoughts from "I want to do this" to "I can do this" and inspiring him to take massive action.
He spent all of 2012 working hard and making small, yet consistent progress. No matter what it took, he was ready to keep pushing forward.
"Right before my father died, he said to me: 'Don't die with regret with your heart.' "
In this interview, Kimanzi tells us how he honed his craft as a writer to get featured in the Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Fox News, etc, and how he went on to write multiple self-published booked that went on to sell over 100,000 copies. He explains how he created a business around the lifestyle he dreamt of living - one that allowed him to lose 170 pounds, get out of debt, and move his family to Maui.
All as a college dropout.
