E084: Harness Your Nervous Energy with Dr. Chloe Carmichael

In this episode, you’ll learn about the differences between self-publishing and publishing with a traditional publisher with author, media personality, and clinical psychologist Dr. Chloe Carmichael.

Dr. Chloe’s interview not only shines a light on the publishing industry but also the mental wellness industry. We discuss how our world is in the midst of a triple pandemic, one around physical health and the virus, another around nutritional health, and a third around mental health.

We have 5 “fun nuggets” and many additional resources to help you on both your publishing and wellness journey.

#1:  Publishing timelines are very different for traditionally published books (vs. self-published). See this ebook for a description of the different kinds of publishers.

#2:   A storyline for a great book can be the answers you give to questions again and again.

#3:  Know your why for your publishing journey.

#4:  Understand the pros and cons of each publishing option (from having control, to speed, to quality). For those that seek more information about publishing, and especially profitable publishing,  I’ve created a new ebook called “5 Things You Need to Know to Make Publishing Profitable and Fun”. Download it now.
