Getting a movie deal for your book with Michael Bunker, Ep 183

Michael Bunker is a USA Today bestselling author of fiction and non-fiction books. He was born in Lubbock, Texas and his family moved around a bit until finally returning to live in his beloved Texas when he was 14 where he went to high school in Odessa and then college at Texas Tech University. After marrying his wife Danielle and entering the business world, they left it all in 1998 to start a small sustenance farm in West Texas so Michael could write. In 2005 the family (now of 6!) moved to Central Texas and started a completely off-grid farm. Michael writes from a small office on his farm that is powered by solar power and occasionally a generator. His breakthrough bestselling novel was The Pennsylvania Omnibus, for which he sold his first film option, followed by the bestselling Amish Scifi thriller Brother, Frank.

WPC-036 - Caffeinated Entrepreneurship with Brendan Hufford

WPC-036 - Caffeinated Entrepreneurship with Brendan Hufford

There are a lot of reasons to start a podcast, but for some folks (the Wordslinger included) it's about learning from people who have done what we want to do, or have found success in their life that we would find important. It's also about sharing what you learn with as many people as possible, to make a difference in the lives of others. That's the kind of thinking that led Brendan Hufford to start the Entrepreneurs and Coffee Podcast, and to do the work he's doing in building a business that can support his family and his passions. This interview is a fantastic start for anyone looking to begin their own journey of entrepreneurship. And to have a good cup of java.
