Author Interview: Gail Kasper

Gail Kasper is a television host, author, business consultant, certified fitness trainer and fitness model. From humble beginnings, Gail moved to California at 19—alone, with no job, no car, and no idea where she would live.

Coming from a place of helplessness, when Gail realized the power of personal and professional education and growth, it led her to achieve her dream of becoming a television host and motivational speaker. As a speaker and entrepreneur, Gail knocked on doors, broke down doors, and build her own doorway where one didn’t exist.

We spoke with Gail Kasper about what inspired her to write her books, her own favorite audiobooks, and more.

Please tell us a little bit about what inspired you to write this book and how this story took shape for you.

I have always believed I was destined to do great things, to inspire others to achieve greatness. With all of my audio programs, there is real life advice that has been shared with someone somewhere. Local television networks seem to like my step-by-step processes that make it easy for someone to achieve success. I have worked with Fortune 100 companies through individual entrepreneurs and the unemployed. I have also motivated inner-city school students—and am an avid animal lover, supporting animal rescue and welfare issues.

What’s something that might surprise listeners about your audiobook?

My personal stories:

  • Leaving home at 19 to move to California, alone with no job, no car, and no idea where I was going to live
  • Sitting on a doorstep for 3 months to get a TV gig when I had no qualifications
  • Getting out of helplessness through personal and professional development to a point of total empowerment
  • Living fearlessly despite any naysayer
  • A no-nonsense approach to living, life and love

Have you listened to your own audiobook? If so, what struck you about the narration?

Yes. I like how I simplify processes. It’s that “oh, I could have had a V8” moment where you take something from the subconscious mind and put it into the conscious mind. I’m known for clearing the air when people can’t see through the fog.

Are you an audiobook listener? If so, what are some of your favorite audiobooks?
