WPC-075 - Exploding Your Author Platform with Jonny Andrews

WPC-075 - Exploding Your Author Platform with Jonny Andrews

The very first piece of advice any entrepreneur or author gets, when it comes to marketing, is "Build your mailing list." Ask the wise advisor how to do that, though, and you're likely to get a string of overly complicated answers that are more or less a dodge. Because for all the wisdom of the advice, the actionable steps to accomplish building a mailing list are really up to the user. That's one reason why Jonny Andrews built Author Platform Rocket. This service uses highly targeted advertising to help funnel people onto a mailing list. It's the first service of its kind, and it's going to change the game for authors. Listen in on this Wordslinger Podcast interview to hear the full story.

WPC-062 - Stories for Your Younger Self with Julian Hosp

WPC-062 - Stories for Your Younger Self with Julian Hosp

Julian left his home in Austria at the age of 16 to move to the US. From there, he became a professional kitesurfer traveling the world for 10 years while (oddly enough) he studied medicine and eventually working as a medical doctor. Like many professionals, he soon became disillusioned with his career choice, and left the medical field (over some family protest) to start his own business. He now lives in Hong Kong, where he inspires others to take a chance on the thing they might be too afraid to try. In this Wordslinger interview, Kevin talks to Julian about his life, his choices, and how all of us can go for our passion even if we're afraid of the path.
