19,000 shares - Kimanzi that is just awesome. Who would have thought a few years ago you would be at where you are at today (I say this only from listening to your story of your "past" life). This along with all the changes you have put in your life (including losing 120+ pounds, move from WI to Hawaii, etc.) has been really fun to follow. You my friend are a inspiration...thank you!! Hey too keep safe during the weather you are having in Hawaii.

You must have been reading my mind, Kimanzi! You HAVE to make the connections, one by one sometimes, and time-consuming, but eventually you reach that tipping point where it begins to multiply exponentially. I'm not a lover of math, so maybe that's why it's taking me longer to get to the exponents! ;-)

Been thinking a lot about books and marketing your book. There are a lot of things you can do to help your book sell and you will get a few extra sales. However, at the end of the day the thing that sells books is having someone to sell them to.

The best way to sell books is to grow your Platform. The more people that see your book the more people have a chance of buying that book. It's a tough sell for someone who doesn't know you to buy your book. 

People buy from someone they know, like and trust. Getting exposed to your platform, signing up for your email list, consuming your content is how they do that. 

As your audience grows so will your book sales. As your audience grows people start to share your content and your book. Yes do all the things you should do with your book to help it but more than anything focus on growing your audience.

You know it's going to be a good week when you get a shout out from the person that inspired you to chase your dream!! Wouldn't be living this life today if I hadn't found 48 Days in Half-Price books :) Don't worry, I've purchased at least 50 full priced copies and given them out as gifts.

I love Evernote because it is cloud based and I can take notes, write, journal, capture photos, audio notes, clip webpages, and even upload PDF documents from any of my three computers, phone, and tablet.  It is convenient and functional.  It provides me with the ability to search index anything including photos with text in them.  So, if I scribble notes on a napkin at lunch, I can take a picture of it and be able to search that photo for the text.  

I know that Scrivener allows you to upload documents for research purposes but what are some of the other key features?  Is is necessary and germane to the discussion or am I getting too technical?

Josh the discount code HAPPYCAMPER will save you 20% if you decide to Scrivener is a good fit for you.

Comment by Dan Miller on August 3, 2014 at 2:45pm

Scrivener is the bomb.  Not fancy - but just super functional.  I would recommend it even for a beginner.  Being able to see all your chapters running down the left hand side is such an advantage over just having one long document.  I completed the manuscript for the 10th Anniversary Edition of 48 Days to the Work You Love with Scrivener. Now I'm working on the new Application Guide - and again, I can add notes in any chapter individually rather than running back and forth through a 70,000 word document.
