How many of you have a book inside of you waiting to be written? Something that you have always wanted to write? But, ultimately, life gets in the way of actually writing it?
Well, right now we’re living in unprecedented times! Like many of you, I am engaged in social distancing. We’re all spending way more time at home than we ever thought we would. And frankly, there is nothing better to do than write a book (and further our careers) when we are all locked down.
And, on today’s podcast, I have the perfect person joining me to help us all do just that. Chandler Bolt is the founder and CEO of the Self-Publishing School. His claim to fame is that he can help you write your book in just 90 days! He has a very simple methodology that can help you go from creating your outline and writing your rough draft to self-publishing a fully-realized book. In this podcast, he details exactly how you can leverage writing your own book to further your business and give you more credibility in your field, the exact process he has used to write his six successful bestselling books, the specific models that make all the difference in the world of self-publishing, and how to actually deliver on what your readers care about.

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!

“Now self-publishing has become the preferred option for most authors because you keep your creative control, you keep the lion’s share of the royalties versus earning pennies on the dollar and it’s a faster; more effective way to sell more books.” — Chandler Bolt
“At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter whether your book is self-published or traditionally published. … It’s about helping the reader solve the problem that they’re trying to solve.” — Chandler Bolt
“As a buddy of mine would say: create or complain!” — Chandler Bolt
“The first and most important thing is getting the rough draft done. That is the most important thing. That is where we start to see that people start to believe that they can write a book.” — Chandler Bolt
“Our goal is 0-to-published in 90 days.” — Chandler Bolt
“A lot of people don’t do the proper organization upfront — therefore, what they write is not good; because it’s an incoherent thought.” — Chandler Bolt
