079 - If Self-Publishing Is a Gamble Why Is Donald Trump Jr. Doing It?

 

Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here!

I’ve been wanting to talk about this for awhile. Given that politics is so dividing currently, let’s talk about the division in self publishing vs traditional publishing as well…

Have you seen the chatter on Donald Trump Jr…the article in the New York Times says:

Self-Publishing Is a Gamble. Why Is Donald Trump Jr. Doing It?
His next book, “Liberal Privilege,” comes with an unusual distribution plan and no publishing house behind it, making it something of a curiosity in the industry.

I’ll post the link to the article over on my blog: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/06/books/donald-trump-jr-liberal-privilege.html

Hey guys! Nicole here!

There really are two kinds of authors…

  1. The writer looking to sell books and the business around their books, and
  2. The entrepreneur looking to write a book to get ahead in their business.

An author needs to become entrepreneurial if they want long term success…whatever category you fall into.

If you have the attitude…I will just put it out there and see what happens you are not an authorprenuer! An authorpreneur looks at writing a book with a different attitude…by choosing to do things to create awareness about why they are writing the book in the first place.

Business owners, authors, and impact changers are using a book to create value from ideas (out of...
