E012: Make a decision to make your move with a book (with Jim Molinelli)

Jim Molinelli is a licensed architect who spent the past 24 years doing design-build remodeling. Now he teaches homeowners how they can master the remodeling process.

A quintessential remodeling expert, Jim holds three different architecture degrees and has taught on the architecture faculty at Texas A&M University.

His unique remodeling designs have won more than fifty remodeling awards, and his service in the industry got him two Maryland Governor’s Citations for Meritorious Service!

In addition to his #1 best-seller Remodel! Without Going Bonkers or Broke, he is working on a web-based remodeling master class for homeowners.

He also blogs and speaks on remodeling based themes, and teaches occasional live classes and workshops.

He and his family live between Baltimore and Washington, DC. He enjoys travel and golf and is an avid baseball fan.

Here are the fun nuggets from the interview:
#1:  Books help you go from one-on-one teaching to one-to-many
#2:  Writing a book helps you to hone your message (“thoughts disentangle as they pass through lips and fingertips”)
#3:  Books and courses go together like birds of the same feather (my corny rhymes)
#4:  Books and speaking are a great combo
#5:  Course building should be based on a pain point (from your audience); Jim suggests doing a live (workshop) version first to get live interaction and feedback
#6: Action is great, but not when it is done out of order (we talk about the OODA loop)
#7: Consistency is key
#8: Small chunks add up
#9: Join a cohort (for your publishing journey)- get support
