Interview with Success Author Kim Lorenz


What inspired you to write this book? Through my years as a business owner, partner, and CEO, I have developed a key understanding of what it takes to succeed in business. My mission is to teach vital tools essential for business success beyond what is taught in business schools.

Who should read it and why? This book is for anyone who wants to have a successful and happy life. It’s a business memoir so, of course, it’s relevant to nascent entrepreneurs and veteran business owners, but I was blown away with the number of mainstream readers this book has attracted. Tireless: Key Principles that Drive Success Beyond Business School is a testimony to those who strive to seek opportunity. It is a must-read for everyone that is determined to win.

How’s it better or different than others in its genre? Tireless: Key Principles that Drive Success Beyond Business School inspires readers to view life differently and seek alternative solutions that others miss. Not only will it open up your eyes to the business opportunities that surround you, but it will also show you exactly what to do once you get there. This business memoir is upbeat, fast-paced, and entertaining. Although it is easy to read, it is information-rich and filled with provocations for reflection and action. I offer incisive usable advice about establishing and leading any type of company.  Tireless: Key Principles that Drive Success Beyond Business School  is a user-friendly blueprint that explains exactly how to find hidden opportunities and convert them into profitable, novel business streams. 

What challenges did you overcome to write your book? Collecting my thoughts on paper and culling my experience down into a format that the masses can understand, apply, and enjoy. There was over 35 years of training files and notes I called my 'Book File'.  If I wrote something on all of it, the book would have 171 chapters.  So, condensing, choosing what to write, and doing it in a way readers would enjoy, was challenging, but enjoyable.  It was also a lot of work.  But like stated in the book so often, you have to commit, make it happen, follow through, take all the steps required.  

What lasting messages do you hope readers are left with after consuming your book? It’s easy to lose motivation in today’s world.  My stories and personal anecdotes are proof that positive thinking and follow through lead to success. Through experience, I have learned that anyone can develop a successful business by noticing unsolved problems and business success relies heavily on "seeing the unseen." I want readers to get inspired, see hidden opportunities, and learn from true business stories that aren't taught in business school. Above all, the goal of Tireless: Key Principles that Drive Success Beyond Business School, is to leave readers with the passion and optimism needed to succeed both in business and in life. 

What advice would you give to a struggling writer? Writers (just like entrepreneurs) should seek and seize the opportunities in front of you because your next decision could dictate the trajectory of life. If you do not take action on building your knowledge base, then nothing happens. Read. Write. Make connections. Have conversations with others in the industry.

Where do you see the book industry heading? The rise of technology, social media, and the internet has given a platform to writers who would not otherwise be able to share their expertise.
