The Book that will fascinate visitors of CarryOnHarry Talk Show ?
"Own Your Greatness - This book is about my own journey of stepping into and owning my greatness. It's about how successful people become successful, how to crack the code to own's own self-worth and self-confidence, and most importantly, once you get there, how do you maintain it when you suffer a blow or encounter those who wish to undermine you."
How did the idea to conceptualize this book come to you ?
"I wrote a blog post about my observation that there is an epidemic of over-humility in society today as a result of programming and buying into untrue stories that people are telling us. I realized there was only a small percentage of people who are even comfortable in their own skin, let alone actually owning their greatness and doing what it takes to maintain it through the most difficult challenges."
What issues and advice have you picked/ suggested in theme of the book ?
"That each and every one of us has greatness within, and that if you don't have someone to tell you that, you need to start telling yourself. The most important story you believe is the one you tell yourself, so consciously choose the story you want and start living it today."

How does this book relate to real life scenarios ? Give us an account ?
"We are a nation of sheeple, of followers, and we have been programmed to believe other people's stories without stopping to consider whether we want to believe it. But at some point, some of us break free from the pack and figure out that we don't have to follow the herd, and we can be our own person. That includes owning those things that we are great at, because we are all great at many things. When we step into and own our greatness, life is much easier, success comes faster, and we can let go of the myth that life and business requires us to struggle or suffer."
What sort of feedback has come to you from readers ?
"The book isn't published yet, but I've interviewed about a dozen successful people who agree that owning one's greatness requires certain habits, actions, intentions, and constant maintenance. It isn't a scenario where you achieve it and then you're done. It's a situation where constant effort and attention has to be focused in this area in order to keep being great."
