Dan Trujillo was busy fulfilling his dream to become a top notch corporate manager, a supportive, caring father for his three sons, and a husband to a wonderful wife. The dream begun to unravel after being diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure in 2001. The prognosis, just like his sister, a heart transplant would be needed for survival. After three open heart surgeries to extend the life of his heart, the time had come. Dan was admitted to UCLA Medical Center on October 24, 2007. On November 12, 2007 Dan received a new heart, from a seventeen year old young man from Las Vegas. After 40 days in intensive care, Dan was released home to start the second part of the battle: Finding the will to live with gratitude, kindness and determination. During the next year, Dan is booked to speak to groups, corporations, students and non-profit organizations about persevering through crisis, the readjustment of goals and most importantly, living a valued life. Using the lessons of what powered him through recovery and the mindset to become personally successful, Dan publishes, "CRASH COURSE: 15 KEY LESSONS TO OVERCOME CRISIS AND ANXIETY." Dan lives with his wife and three sons in Southern California, and according to him, he is addicted optimist.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.)

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

And since nobody reads anything, I've simply removed the phone number from the site.  

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
