  • Thinking of your topic – What are the broken record conversations you continue to have? What questions do others ask you on a regular basis? The market will help you understand where you add value…
  • Hiring othersAn hour is an hour. A simple metric… Your take-home pay is divided by 2,080. That is your hourly rate. Hire others to do work if it’s cheaper than your hourly rate. This is hard to do but appears to be a wise investment long term
  • The 4 P’s of writing – Person, pain, promise, price. Write to one person… just like you’re responding to an email.
  • “A book is a $15 mentor”
  • Writing process:
    • Mind map
    • Outline
    • Rough draft
  • “People who pay, pay attention.”
  • “Go from I want to, to I am doing it.”
  • The root word of authority is author
  • Revenue = Vanity
  • Profit = Sanity
  • Cash = King
  • Designing the life you want first… Michael Hyatt has helped him schedule his time off first.
  • “Valuing freedom above all else; entrepreneurs work harder to create future freedom, which directly takes away from their freedom in the present.”
  • “The truth is, you’ll never “find the time” to write a book. You have to make it.”
  • “Don’t be the person who misses out on opportunities in life because you take too long to accomplish your work tasks. Be the kind of person other people marvel at. Be the kind of person other people see and say, “I don’t know how they do it.” Be the kind of person who takes action and does so immediately.”
