Here are the fun nuggets from the interview:
Fun nugget #1: Finding a topic for your book is as easy as going back to elementary school (use a good old fashioned Venn Diagram to find the intersection of personal interest/passion, personal experience, and profitability)
Fun nugget #2: Having a “stinker” of a book is not the end of the world (folks, treat it like an important learning lesson)
Fun nugget #3: O=E+R (Outcomes equals events plus your response to events); your outcomes for your book will be directly correlated to the amount of hustle you put behind them
Fun nugget #4: Write, Publish, Repeat (also the title of a book both Steve and I recommend)
Fun nugget #5: Think about the next steps beyond the book before you write your book (consulting, affiliate marketing, online courses, an online community, etc.)
