In episode 15 of the Blissdom Podcast, we welcome a favorite of the Blissdom family - Jeff Goins!
Jeff is a writer, speaker, and entrepreneur. He is the best-selling author of five books, including The Art of Work and Real Artists Don’t Starve. In addition to writing and speaking, he runs an online education business that helps writers and creative entrepreneurs chase their dreams.
Together, Alli and Jeff discuss:
Secret strategies behind writing a best-selling book.
Why marketing matters in the middle of your writing process.
The critical mindset shift that made Jeff’s 10th blog attempt a success.
Steps to take to validate your book idea before it goes to the publisher.
Uncovering book ideas that will drive sales.
How to measure success and when to stop trying new things.
Here’s just a few of our favorite quotes:
“Activity always follows identity. Whatever you believe about yourself will ultimately manifest itself in your life.”
“What we teach people to do is bake the marketing of the book into the book itself. Once the book is done, the marketing is over. The best marketing tool you have for the book, is the book itself.”
“I spent 9 years not pursing this thing that was in my heart, because I was afraid it would be a failure. I never thought on the other side of the possibility spectrum, ‘What if this could be amazing?’ and it was far better than I could have ever expected.”
