Takeaways from episode 12
- Rather than thinking you are the failure look at your processes. They might be the cause.
- What is it that has you stuck. Generally it is some kind of conversation we have with ourselves that gets ourselves stuck in our businesses.
- Create resources that readers can download when they read the book and don’t leave them to the end.
- Put your resources link in the preview section so people don’t need to read the book.
- Amazon does the marketing for you and 90% of people buy on Amazon
