My guest today is an author and entrepreneur who turns entrepreneurs and interesting people into authors.

After leaving, the University of Michigan and becoming a sports writer, he accidentally wrote a best seller in 10 days at an interesting pivot point in his live.

You don’t need to “get a publisher.” You don’t need to be chosen. You just need a worthwhile idea, and a framework which we’ll discuss.

Topics in this episode:

  • The two requirements to writing a book
  • A key insight to validate your book ideas
  • Matt’s signature “Platypus Process”
  • The wrong way to monetize the book and what to do instead
  • How to build your book’s audience
