Mixing the word of God with the pursuit of financial success was never going to be an easy task. I think our next author William Mashilo has done a great job of bridging the gap between spiritual wealth and that of monetary wealth with the release of his latest title. An inspirational book, much needed for our current environment lacking the necessary educational nourishment for the needy soul.

Perceiving, Planning and Producing Wealth: Understanding the principles of true riches and wealth creation

Give us the elevator pitch for your book?

It is easy to follow the bandwagon of celebrity worship – from senseless catch-ups of hollow reality TV shows embellished by expenses on luxury, to the concoction of the same old exploited natural passions, it’s as if something new comes with a particular generation, but it’s always a wallowing in of the same old debauchery.

It may appear as if wealth creation will be popular and widely accepted one day as well. Notwithstanding, this might be an unreasonable hope that some people might have but tangible results are structured for. I am glad because some things can be explained.

In my book, ‘Perceiving, Planning and Producing Wealth’ you will find out how the quest for independence had been used out of context to bring confusion and limitations. It seems to me that the souls to whom knowledge appeals have imbibed on a drink offering enough not to abide in the offence generated from the unsatisfied appetites of lusts enumerated predominantly by 4.0.

Let’s uncover the confusion and the limitations of the law of attraction; and false accusations of wealth creation by expounding on the laws and dynamics of life, love, peace and harmony, liberty – as pertaining to the prosperity of the soul – hidden in Christ Jesus, that make possible and very fundamental the concept of wealth creation.

What would you give as your main reason or goal for writing?

My endeavour with writing goes beyond imparting knowledge to challenging people to seek excellence in and through God. Readers will discover my weaknesses that God used as a platform for His empowerment, as they ferret through the pages of my discourses.

My writings relate more with those who have infirmities than with the strong. I write to advocate excellence in view of building from intrinsic qualities for the bona-fide experience of grandeur, completeness and maturity.

Who was the book written for?

The younger (between 20 and 39 years) generation would benefit more from the book, ‘Perceiving, Planning and Producing Wealth’, than anyone between 40 and 60 years.

How long did it take for you to finish the final draft of your book?

Approximately 5 months, and 2 more months to refine the work.

What makes this book different from others on the shelf?

The gist of this discourse is the connection of the soul to the richness of God and systems of mankind to make the most of them.

This book juxtaposes the world view to wealth creation with God’s view, bringing therapeutic revelations for the fiery quest of independence that hadn’t been of securable help to the prospects. It explains why the world’s view had in many cases siphoned the life that sets one on the threshold and the crest of making the most of available resources.

What was the hardest part of the writing journey for you?

There was no challenge of writing the book, as my academic and personal life were an inspiration behind the writing of this book.

I have discovered earlier that I am happier and more enthusiastic when I am writing – I rejoice because of writing.

Your favourite genre to write?

I have not decided to focus on a single field as yet, but I would say Christian business.

What kept you motivated to write during the times you felt stuck?

There was no challenge in writing the book.

Tell us something about yourself that readers would not be able to guess?

I am a very passionate born again Christian, with an endeavour to make the Christ known to as many as possible. I love reading Bible, Christian literature, business literature and non-Christian business books.

I seem to be a living paradox. I acknowledge that I am so separated from the people but yet outspoken – I think this is something that makes writing convenient. I spend little to no time on sporting programs.

Have you written any other books?

One other book was written that I haven’t deemed worthy of publication as yet. (It’s a book a I will revisit when the time is right. Currently, I have lost interest for it)
