What Did We Chat About?

  • How does a book help position you as a thought leader
  • How you can leverage podcasts and published books together
  • Why do we share things?  

Golden Nuggets From Our Conversation:

  • The common denominator with big speakers and influencers was that they have published a book.  
  • Your podcast and your published book can work together to help promote each other.  
  • Start where you are more comfortable.  If you like speaking better, start with a podcast. If you like writing, start with your book and get the ball rolling.  
  • “The only way you can fail is by doing nothing.  Taking action anytime is a good thing.”
  • A book is a lot of up front work that you can leverage forever.  A podcast is something with less work at the beginning, but can provide regular activity.  
  • Publishing a book gives people a natural confidence that can’t help but come out.  Internal self confidence comes out.  
  • There’s magic around publishing a book.  Take advantage of that psychologically!  
  • Published books are credibility indicators to the public!
  • Ask for video testimonials from people or screenshots!
