PBR: Today we have the pleasure of being with Joshua McDowell, author of The Tools You Need To Be Successful: Never Give Up, Never Back Down, a book dealing with a family divorce. Thank you for taking your time to join us.
JM: Thank you for having me. I’m so glad to be having this interview right now.
PBR: First, let me express my sympathies for what you unfortunately had to go through to be in a position to write this book. What were your reasons for bringing this to publication?
JM: Well it’s like this; I wanted to teach other men regardless if they were married or not that yes you can win custody of your child and yes you deserve every opportunity to be with your child regardless if you’re not with your child’s mother. I wrote this book in hopes to help others from my experiences dealing with these issues. This is a serious issue that everyone seems to overlook but this subject is very fatal to most.
PBR: How can reader’s best use your book in their own custody battles?
JM: People can use this book to help them with their own custody battles because there’s so much information and paper work that they will need to know, and what paper work to file? And when they need to file it? I give my readers a step by step guide in what is going to happen and how they can handle it from my experience. I put this saying in my book because to me it is important. Anything worth having is always worth the fight.
PBR: Your book specifically dealt with your experiences in the Ohio judicial system; do you expect to expand your work in future editions to other states?
JM: Yes, yes I do. I plan on taking this book as far as God lets me. I plan on changing this world for the better one family at a time.
PBR: What plans do you have to further develop the tools and approaches outlined in your book?
JM: Right now I’m in the process of trying to set up events where I can be a motivational speaker and help encourage those parents to don’t stop fighting and for them not to give up. I want to help so bad it’s just unfortunate that I don’t have the money to do so. My goal was to travel the world to be a motivational speaker but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. I am now a single father and at one time when I was fighting for my son at one time I felt like giving up and walking away, but I didn’t. I stayed and I stuck it out. Our children are our future.
PBR: Having written one book, are you planning to pursue a career as an author? If so, what topics will you be writing about in the future?
JM: That’s a great question. Being a self-published author and having little to no money. I’m trying to do the best that I can with what I’ve got. I would love to know what being an author feels like but I guess time will tell. I love writing and I love to help others.
PBR: Tell us about your website.
JM: My web page is ...
PBR: Will you expand your presence on YouTube into further videos or a channel?
JM: I also did a commercial on YouTube. My readers can look me up under Joshua McDowell commercial.
PBR: We wish you the best of success with your book, and again thank you for taking your time to join us.
