From the Author

Hello there – my name is Felipe Carreras, the author of "Steps & Stops." With over 20 years of experience in eCommerce, digital marketing, and corporate leadership, I've had the privilege of managing enterprise-level projects and seeing them through to completion. However, I've often struggled to apply the discipline, tools and techniques I learned at the office to my personal life. My journey into entrepreneurship was the spark that inspired me to develop new skills and frameworks to bridge this gap. This ultimately led to the creation of the Five Flames Model and the Steps & Stops Strategy, which are featured in this book. I hope you can learn from my experiences and avoid some of the challenges I faced. I wish you the best with your journey, wherever it takes you.
