Mike Pestano and his Book I am Enough -- 90 Days to Transformation

April 18, 2019

Dear Readers:

I am really excited for the following week as my sister and I take off on the Royal Princess out of San Padro, CA to Mexico. I will be taken by ship to ports of call that I have never been. I can't wait to board the ship and escape for eight full days of cruising. With that said, I won't be posting a blog for nine days so please be patient with me.

I had my Meet and Greet last night in Anaheim, CA and was graced with the presence of several friends that I haven't seen in over five years. We stayed up all night until 3:00 a.m. talking and sharing. Thank you, everyone, for your support. I will be going to many other places across the country so if you missed me here, stay updated through this blog.

Today my readers have the opportunity to get acquainted with a new author, Mike Pestano, and his book I am enough: Abundance of the Universe, published by Radhaa Publishing. If you may recall, several weeks ago,  featured the fabulous Radhaa Nalia and her publishing company and it is with pride that I feature one of her published author's books. Meet Mike Pestano.

Tell your readers a little about yourself. Where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.

I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines until my family migrated to Canada in 1989. In between those years, I also lived in Dallas from 1984-85 and attended college there. I’ve traveled a lot since I was a kid in the Philippines and saw many historical regions from North to South. I speak English fluently along with Tagalog, the national language but I can also understand a couple of other dialects. I attended Ateneo de Manila and Far Eastern University in the Philippines majoring in Business Management. In Canada, I attended Ryerson University and majored in Information Management. After formal schooling, I went into the business world in Toronto and then in Vancouver and added certifications in insurance, securities, and other investments. When I migrated to the United States in 2002 I added more certifications but this time in the field of nutrition, health, and fitness. Even though I battled weight problems growing up I was always active in sports like basketball, baseball, football, swimming, golf, and many others. Participating in sports helped hone my discipline and my perseverance and it culminated in my becoming co-captain of the varsity baseball team in college.

I’m the type to always be in learning mode and hungered for knowledge. My greatest passion though is reading and writing and that is reflected in every job I’ve had through the years whether as an editor or writer for the different companies I worked for. Even though I was a business major in college my best subjects were in English literature, composition, poetry, and writing essays. My other passion is health and fitness of mind, body, and soul and I hold certifications as a personal trainer, sports nutrition and weight loss specialist. I believe that the key to unlocking one's true potential is through the optimal performance of mind and body. The knowledge and experience I have enables me to teach and educate people about nutrition and fitness.

What inspired you to write this book?

This is my third book and it is inspired by the journey of transformation I’ve gone through in this lifetime. So many people are confused about the what, where, when, how, and why of losing weight permanently and reversing lifestyle diseases like type 2 diabetes. I'm living proof it can be done naturally and without medicine. There is so much misinformation and misrepresentation out there. My goal with this book is to cut through the nonsense and provide accurate and proven information. Yes, in 90 days one can truly achieve a paradigm shift and transformation of mind and body and that's what this book does.

Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?

This book cover represents the Phoenix rising from the ashes of the old and reborn into something powerful and authentic. I've always been fascinated by the different mythologies and Greek mythology captured my attention early. The Phoenix symbolizes renewal by obtaining new life through cyclical regeneration.

 Who has been the biggest influence on you personally and as a writer?

My dearest friend Radhaa Nilia has been my biggest influence since my own Phoenix story of transformation. She inspired me to be the best and highest version of myself and this led to me becoming the person and writer I am. A woman of courage, integrity, honesty, true friendship, perseverance, and dedication to always growing and evolving.

What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?

This is the actual program I created for myself back in 2011 to lose over 107 pounds. I used my vast knowledge of diet, nutrition and supplementation, and fitness techniques to create a 90-day transformation program that anyone can follow and adhere to. The biggest struggles and obstacles I faced were primarily mental and emotional. Losing weight is not just a physical undertaking. It takes a lot of mindset adjustment and learning to get rid of faulty belief systems that don't work. Losing weight was actually easier than maintaining it.

 Tell your readers about your book.

It's a simple step-by-step guide for nutrition and exercise that won't starve you nor deny you your favorite foods. You don't have to spend endless hours in the gym grinding away every single day. Less is more. Anyone can achieve success and stop the yo-yo effect of past dieting efforts. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 50 pounds this program serves as a foundation to further transformation.

Who is your target audience and why?

My target audience here is those who are overweight/obese and struggling with lifestyle diseases. In particular, those suffering from type 2 diabetes will learn how to properly manage the disease effectively.

 If you were going to give one reason for anyone looking at your book to read, why should they buy it?

I'm living proof that it can be done. Many books were written out there that sound great in theory. I'm a former type 2 diabetic who lost over 107 pounds with my own program. There's nothing more powerful than that.

What do you consider your greatest success in life?

It would be discovering my true authentic self and living my passion every single day. The freedom to do anything when I want, how I want, and where I want is priceless.

 Everyone has life lessons to learn, tell your readers one or two of yours and how they make you the person you are today.

Be patient and grateful every single day while living in the now. Rushing through life and running at full-speed is a recipe for many mishaps. Yesterday's gone, tomorrow hasn't happened, so live fully in the now and be present!

What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?

I believe the one unique thing is that I'm a living example of practicing what I preach about health and that I did it successfully my way in spite of the naysayers.
 I understand you are collaborating with another author.

Tell me who that person is: Radhaa Nilia

What is the name of that book?

We are working on curating a book of individual stories of awakening called Awakening Starseeds-Shattering Illusions

What is it like to work with your partner?

I love working with Radhaa because she's honest, open, direct, and sees things in a different perspective I find refreshing and exciting.

 You are Chief Technical Advisor at Radhaa Publishing and are curating a series of collaborative books. How can readers and authors contact Radhaa Publishing?
