040 - Book Publishing Tips with Honorée Corder

February 19, 2016
With Will It Fly launched and out in the world at last, I couldn't think of a better time to chat with Honorée Corder—a truly amazing "authorpreneur," speaker, and coach.

Honorée has an incredible wealth of experience writing books, turning those books into sustainable income, and working with inspirational authors like Hal Elrod. In this episode, she shares why she chose authorpreneurship and where she stands in the traditional vs. self-published debate. She also weighs in on how to uncover the book within you, how to promote it, and why you shouldn't stop at just one book. Watch and enjoy!

039 - Interview with Jay Papasan, Author of The One Thing

January 15, 2016

This week on SPI TV, I'm so pleased to introduce Jay Papasan, co-author of The One Thing—a book I consider a must-read for every business owner.

The One Thing taught me so much about becoming a more productive, effective entrepreneur. It's a book that both inspires its readers and lays out concrete steps for us to act on—a difficult and rare achievement, as Jay explains in the video.

As someone in the midst of launching my own book, Will It Fly?, I was so excited to sit down with Jay. He has such a wealth of wisdom and experience to share—everything from settling on that one, book-worthy idea to"killing your darlings" in the editing process.

If you feel like you've also got a book in you, or if you're curious to learn what The One Thing is all about, listen in on what Jay has to say!

038 - Validating a Product and the Story of SumoJerky with Noah Kagan

January 8, 2016
This week on SPI TV, I've got the amazing Noah Kagan with me for a very special live appearance. Noah is the founder of AppSumo, and he's here to share his incredibly valuable experience with vetting and testing business ideas.

With the release of Will It Fly? just around the corner, I knew it was time to dig into this idea of product validation with you guys. As Noah says, it's so easy to become trapped in a state of "playing business"—spinning your wheels and avoiding risks rather than doing business. Noah relates his advice for getting out of those ruts and taking meaningful action on your business ideas.

He also shares the great story behind one of his latest businesses, SumoJerky, and what that experience taught him—even as a seasoned entrepreneur. Take a look!
