#18: Six Figure eBooks, with Nathan Barry

Last July at the World Domination Summit conference in Portland I met Nathan Barry, who at the time was an iOS app developer. Little did I know that over the next 9 months he would go on to release three books and a web app that would earn him over $150,000.In this session I chat with Nathan about how he was successful at building an audience from scratch, landed high-level guest posts on launch day, how pricing his book into multiple packages earned him $50,000 more, and why he has no interest in working with a traditional publisher any time soon (and neither should you).You can listen or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or use this player.

#15: Hustle & Balance, with Gary Vaynerchuk

If you follow Gary Vaynerchuk (author of Crush It, The Thank You Economy, and the upcoming book: Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy, Social World) you've probably heard that he is doing an interview a day this year and I had the pleasure of chatting with him this morning.In this podcast session we dive into the difference between hustling and just working a lot of hours, work life balance, scaling authenticity and engagement as your audience grows online, why it is never too late to get started, whether or not you should being doing videos online, and even who he wants the New York Jets to draft this weekend.He also gives a rebuttal to the response he received from his post earlier this week on LinkedIn called "My Best Mistake: Too Much Success".My favorite quote from this episode is:"If you've got the content and you find the medium that works for you... the tools don't matter." - Gary VaynerchukYou can listen or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or use this player.
