This is one of those landmark interviews for me because Chris Brogan was one of the first people I followed online.
His book, Trust Agents, shaped the way I run my business, and his video on the 10-year overnight success helped me through difficult times. So I'm thrilled to have Chris on the show today.
In the introduction, I mention the continued growth of audiobooks and my own 2 new books out in audio: The Successful Author Mindset and How to Make a Living with your Writing. Plus the Tim Ferriss podcast on financial freedom and how excited I am to meet so many indie authors down under who are just doing their thing, writing and making money, and ‘no one' in the mainstream industry and media knows who they are. We live in amazing times!
