A pleasure to welcome back Guy Kawasaki to the show! Guy is the best-selling author of 12 books, including his latest, APE: How To Publish A Book. And that was the purpose of our conversation today…
1. Publishing is simple, but it isn’t easy. Guy wanted to write a book that walks you through step-by-step how to self-publish.
2. Is there still a stigma attached to self-publishing? Guy says no, and that in fact we are artisanal publishers (aka artists)!
3. To self-publish, you have to be three things: author, publisher, and entrepreneur. And Guy shares which is actually the hardest of the three…
4. We spend considerable time on why you should write a book: enriching lives, intellectual challenge, furthers an idea or cause, and powers your brand in ways you cannot imagine.
5. What holds people back from writing a book? Guy breaks down the common roadblocks, and how to overcome them.
6. The common mistakes people make when self-publishing.
If you have ever wanted to write your own book, fiction or non-fiction, you will value this conversation and benefit from Guy’s book!
