Episode 017: Jeff Haden – Why 578,000 People Follow Jeff’s Writing On LinkedIn

This was a very interesting conversation with Jeff Haden.  I had never met a ghost writer prior to speaking with Jeff.  I have read a lotof his work on INC and LinkedIn for quite some time and I didn’t even realize he was the author.  I suspect a lot of  you have as well.  Check his work out on LinkedIn.  He has written a lot of great pieces that will inevitably help in your career.

From INC: Jeff Haden is a ghostwriter, speaker, LinkedIn Influencer, and contributing editor for Inc. He learned much of what he knows about business and technology working his way up to managing a 250-employee book plant; everything else he picks up as a ghostwriter for innovators and business leaders. He’s written more than 50 nonfiction books, including six Amazon Business and Investing No. 1’s, along with hundreds of articles and reports. And he’s collected four years of tips and advice in his book TransForm: Dramatically Improve Your Career, Business, Relationships, and Life … One Simple Step at a Time.

Ryan,

I look forward to listening to the podcast. I noticed that you misspelled the author of the book “so good that they can’t ignore you”. It is Cal Newport.
