Write a Book and Share Your Story with Calvin Simpson

Today my special guest is Calvin Simpson. This is my second episode with Calvin; you can check out our first fireside chat together here.

As you’ve noticed in the past few episodes, the conversations I’m having are around growing your personal brand as a means to attract clients to your business. In my personal journey, one of the ways I’ve done that is by publishing a book about my story.

In this episode we are going to talk about self-publishing, and if you want some inspiration to help you share your story - stick around.

Share this episode with your friends!

When you share your story, it compels others to share theirs. http://bit.ly/2ln3Z8T #writing

Perfect writing comes out robotic. We don’t connect with robots; we don’t connect with perfect grammar. http://bit.ly/2ln3Z8T

Your audience, focus and the message in your story - that comes first. Punctuation and grammar come last.
