Author Biography

"I hear young people of all ages saying they never really thought they could make any of their dreams come true" says 24-year-old multi-lingual charity founder, award-winning novelist, RJ Tolson...."But I'm here to tell you, where there is inspiration there's a way."

At only 17 years of age and while still attending high school, RJ Tolson began posting chapters to his Chaos Chronicles Book 1: Zephyr The West Wind, an adventure filled extravaganza of superheroes, magical realism, paranormal power and creatures, to, a youtube equivalent for writers. Tolson's Wattpad fan base grew rapidly to many thousands. In less than a year Universal Kingdom Print signed the 18-year-old Whittier College freshman to a five book Chaos Chronicles Series with Zephyr The West Wind the first in the installment.

Zephyr The West Wind garnered RJ Tolson a Finalist Award in the 2013 Beverly Hills Book Awards and National Indie Excellence Book Awards. At that same time and only 19-years-old, Tolson launched a National Literacy Campaign. Traveling from New England to Florida and across the West, he urged middle and high schoolers to excel chiefly through the skills of reading and writing. This movement became the impetus for Tolson’s self-help book, Project Limitless Volume I: The Success Initiative.

Tolson's creative talents don’t stop with literary works or business. He is a musician, lyricist and composer and cites legendary composer and conductor, John Williams, and Williams' award-winning compositions as an inspiration for his Zephyr The West Wind Original Book Soundtrack.

The Success Initiative (Project: Limitless, Volume 1): The Start Guide to Unleashing Your Potential, Crumbling the Boundaries Around You, and Achieving Revolutionary Success! by author R.J. Tolson is a quick read. I felt the book was well-written in an inspiring manner that will benefit all. From start to finish, this book had me contemplating the essence of life and my purpose in the world. In many ways, I was captivated by the thoughts of defining who I really am as an individual and what I will do going forward to make a difference in the world. The fact that R.J. Tolson is only in his early twenties makes this book all the more special as a brilliant young mind can provide the tools that will ultimately help you succeed.

Some of the tools that author R.J. Tolson provides in Project Limitless Volume 1 include proper planning and innovating through new processes that can better streamline your business. If you are able to plan and implement the right goals, then you will not only be able to make money, but you will also become successful in all you chose to accomplish in life. The main factor that I took away from this book is that dreams are achievable. It does not matter how much money you have or what stage of your life you are at, the fact of the matter is that success begins with you. With that said, I felt the book was a bit short. I would have liked to see a little more depth in certain sections. However, I did feel that the topics discussed, especially those surrounding global competition, were profound in nature. I will certainly be on the lookout for the next volume in the series from R.J. Tolson.

"When things get tough, the tough get going, right? Easy to say, harder to do. The more overwhelmed we feel, the less we are able to do to dig ourselves out. Change is constant, the world doesn’t sit still while we collect ourselves up and re-group. But when one hits bottom, we forget there is only one way to move and that is up. In just a few pages, without preaching, R.J. Tolson’s The Success Initiative: Project Limitless gives some sound ideas to help in that re-grouping effort, from students to adults, there is something to take away from the words of R.J. Tolson, what you learn, what you utilize is up to you. The idea is to make a plan, set a goal, just a small one and see it through. Then make another and so on. You may not end up a billionaire, but if you end up happy with yourself and hold on to a slice of brightness, no matter how dark things can get, you have succeeded and your future is limitless.

No matter your age or circumstance, R.J. Tolson keeps it light, no condescension, no snake oil miracles, just some sound thoughts to ponder."

I loved this book so much. It helped me get going on my career and stop procrastinating!

R. J. Tolson has done something quite remarkable...he's written a well-disguised self-help book for kids of all ages.
As another reviewer (Nolan Kabrich) suggested, Tolson would probably say, "You can start anywhere...just get started."

So I'm a few pages shy of completing RJ Tolson's 454 page Zephyr The West Wind, well into his second book in his Chaos Chronicles Series, Hugh The Southern Flame, and now also reading his The Success Initiative. It's an excellent read for all ages but I'm reading it with my young nieces and nephews in mind. I believe The Success Initiative will help them get clear on their goals and a path to achieving them. I heard RJ Tolson say in a CBS tv interview, "Sometimes you need a push." This book definitely gives you that and inspiration. I can't wait for my nieces and nephews to find it in their Xmas stockings.

Very impressive young author with a lot of potential. Cannot wait for the next work.

This book should prove very helpful for anyone not only looking to examine themselves for their inner potential, but also seeking concrete steps to achieve their goals. Tolson has used many examples from his own life to illustrate for his readers how to find the parts of themselves that they can tap into. The book is divided into logical sections which first ask readers to self-assess themselves and work towards taking the concrete steps to success. Anyone feeling bogged down in their lives and looking to make changes should definitely check this title out.

You are amazing. I remember you locking yourself in the room to finish this project by the deadline and still finding time to help me with my music business plan.

You inspire me.

Finally a self-help book which is easy to understand, cuts to the chase and gets to the meat of the matter quickly. I appreciate the "homework" at the end of each chapter - it helps reinforce the concepts in the chapters. Great for people who want to get maximum benefit in a short amount of time. Highly recommend!

R.J., I'm impressed by all your achievements!

This #selfhelp book is an #inspirational read that helps guide not only someone in their profession and career but also in every aspect of how to be successful in life. I’m so glad I was able to come across this book at #PlayListLive and speak with RJ himself. It is #motivational , eye opening, and simple to follow in the breakdown of what everyone can do to find success. I couldn’t help but think that I need to find the second book as soon as it’s published!
