So, you’ve written the book and now you’re all excited to launch it. But you realize that you just don’t have that many people promoting it. You want affiliates for your book launch. How do you get them? That is what this post is about.
I’ve been fortunate to have worked on tons of book launches for awesome people like Lewis Howes, Brian Tracy, Ray Edwards and Jeff Goins, whose book launch for his new book, Real Artists Don’t Starve just finished this week.
When you think of a leader, what do you think of? Do you think of Bill Gates secluding himself in a cabin for a week to think big things. A solitary leader who single-handedly uses his genius to solve every problem, launch every new initiative, and change the world? Well, in today’s episode we’re going to hang up your superman cape and share the 3 reasons that you can’t lead alone.
Everywhere we look there are leaders being held up as single-handedly taking on the world and fearlessly leading their companies to record profits and accolades. Donald Trump, Mark Cuban, Jack Welch, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates. Society tries to tell us that these leaders lead fearlessly and lead alone. But the truth is actually very different.
Are you limiting your potential to what you know or what others tell you? All too often we allow our circumstances (what we know) and what others say about us (our parents, the media, statistics) to determine how high we think we can reach. We let the things most out of our control hold us back from our true potential.
When I was growing up, living with a single mother, we moved seven times in a six year span. I often joke that my mom worked three jobs just to keep us on the right side of the tracks, but I could see the tracks from my bedroom!
We bounced around from town to town, apartment complex to trailer park, school to school, and on more than one occasion had our car repossessed. All of that seemed normal to me.
