A book can and should be a community effort.

Nothing is worse that releasing a book and having nobody ready to buy it.

It is better to have a long game plan.

Have content that is evergreen.

Get permission to stay in touch with your readers long term.

Everybody has got a book in them.

Don’t make the podcast your business.

The journey will be different for every individual.

The biggest mistake is not choosing a target audience.

Create content that is influential at a small scale.

Forget about the SEO. Focus on the content. Focus on the value.

Good information and value grows your audience over time.
