- Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
My professional journey has been very similar to my personal journey – somewhat of a winding road in which I’ve learned a lot and been very fortunate. I first became interested in self-help while studying in Washington, DC, and then for a short time in London.
My interest started from a place of need and self-preservation, as a result of some difficult periods in which I experienced bouts of sadness and depression. I felt a sense of hope in learning about different tools to help deal with the anxieties and worries I was struggling to overcome. We’re all the product of our experiences, though I’m not sure that I could have written The Unicorn in You as effectively at any other time in my life.
More recently, I became motivated to write The Unicorn in You around the onset of the pandemic. I had been close to experiencing a significant breakthrough in my wellness, and when the world was upended, I felt a keen sense of personal responsibility to make the most of that time and reflect on how to appreciate all that life had to offer.
For me, this meant digging deep and understanding what truly mattered most, and distilling those findings into practical wisdom for living and finding peace and joy. I felt I had something important and unique to say and the way I crafted this book is in the spirit of warm, calming guide.
- What can we expect from you in the future?
I like to say that if my book helps just one person, it will have been a worthwhile project. To be sure, it has helped me personally, which makes it so much more of a personal perspective.
The feedback I have received thus far has been very humbling, as the ideas I share seem to have resonance regardless of where the reader is on their personal journey. It’s because of this response that I am inspired to speak further on my viewpoint in an effort to reach more people who are seeking a sensible, practical path to peace and joy.
While I always believed that the principles I outline are universal in their application, I have been pleasantly surprised to receive interest from the business community to speak to employees about how they can be useful in a work environment. As someone who has been in business for nearly twenty-five years, I always felt that the message in The Unicorn in You transcended any distinction between the personal and professional. I hope that readers find a timeless quality, through the stories, fables, and quotes. To that end, I’m enjoying speaking through various media outlets.
- Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
The Unicorn in You is unique because, unlike many self-help books, it doesn’t tell you what to do. This approach is more of an ‘unself-help’ book, and there is very little process to it. Instead, it’s a set of principles that are universal, but can be understood and applied differently to each individual so that they have a distinct impact.
The subtitle, “A Path to Peace and Joy,” is also intentional. By saying it’s a path, rather than the path, the reader recognizes there are a multitude of ways to get there. Ideally, people coming to this space will feel led rather than pushed, and I think the content will resonate much more effectively.
I also feel strongly that this type of book creates sense of community, and it’s with that idea in mind that I look forward to connecting with readers to hear their feedback and listen to their ideas as well.
Joshua Kramer is the creator of The Unicorn in You, a personal growth and development perspective that emphasizes five key principles as the foundation for peace and joy.
As a lifelong student of numerous self-help practices, he arrived at his simplified approach after struggling to identify a method that was less mechanical and unnatural, and more instinctual and organic.
He is the Managing Partner of Kramer Chandler, a real estate business founded in 1922, and an active member of YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization). When not pursuing his passion for travel, he can be found more locally around town walking his beloved Havanese, Buddy.
