Right now we are trying to fully incorporate within Tennessee. That has been the challenge.

What's the most fun part?
The fun part is autographing books and interacting with people at conferences. People want more and we plan to give it to them.

Anything you would have done differently?
We probably would have incorporated earlier but we both work full- time and I was finishing up my doctorate.

Later this year, we plan to have a summit and then explain to plays and eventually film.

What advice do you have for others?
Don't be content with your day job. Get out there and make things happen.
