So why do I care about authors?
Why do I do all of the podcasts that I do, why do I do all of these videos, and why am I putting out a lot of content for authors?
Well, part of the reason is I love writing.
I love authors.
I’ve been able to connect with thousands of authors either in person or online or wherever via email and I love them.
I love the folks who put in just so much effort into doing all of this
amazing work and putting their books out into the world.
That takes a lot of chutzpah (to go all Yiddish on you).
I also just love the fact that I get to teach and I love sharing things that I learn.
This Stephen Covey quote from forever ago, may he rest in peace, was “You learn 90% of what you teach.”
And so when I learn something, when I see that something works, I wanna share it with as many people as possible.
Now let’s talk about marketing.
Authors, a lot of people feel like marketing is a dirty word.
But I’ve always really liked marketing.
I think back to when I was a theater nerd in college and I just always wanted to be the guy marketing.
I always wanted to be the guy putting out the posters for our shows.
I remember packing a house of 280 plus seats for a show that nobody had ever heard of.
And I thought that that was just an amazing thing to be a part of.
I was so excited by it.
And so if I can ever help you or any author learn more about marketing, I wanna do it.
So I hope that cleared things up.
I hope you know that I do care about you.
And I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.
