Today, I’m going to talk about the 10 things that I did right and wrong with my book launch.
What’s up Believe Nation? I’m excited to be here. The book has been out for a little bit. We’ve gotten some great reviews, great testimonials, it’s been amazing seeing the results people been getting by going through the book, and the audiobook, and the ebook. It’s been an awesome experience, and I’ve been thinking.
I’ve been thinking over the past couple months what I did right that really helped, that really worked, and what I did wrong. So, that one, if I ever write a book again, I’ve learned a little bit, and two, for those of you who are thinking about writing a book, these may be some lessons that you can take to avoid having some of the pitfalls that I went through in launching my first book. So, let’s start off with what I did right.
What I Did Right
#1: Fought What I Wanted
The first thing was, I fought for what I wanted. When I first talked to me agent about this book, he didn’t think it was going to be a book. He thought it was a work book, like a little tiny worksheet thing, and my literary agent felt the same way, that it wasn’t really a full-on book, and I had to fight for it. I had to prove to them that it was a full book, that this is the book, right? Like, I wrote twice this amount. Right, this is 65,000 words, something like that, and that’s a typical book. I wrote 120,000 words.
I wrote two books worth of content, ’cause it was so much in there that you could potentially apply your one word to, and at the beginning, they didn’t see it, and so I had to show them, and I fought for it, and I think a lot of times, at the start, you hear music, there’s that quote about you hearing music and so you dance, and the people who can’t hear the music think you’re crazy. You see this person dancing, you can’t hear the music, you think they’re crazy.
” If you’re really convinced that your idea is a good one, and it has to be created, fight for it.” – Evan Carmichael
It’s kind of like, what entrepreneurs are, is what I was doing at the start of this book process. I had this vision for what I wanted to do, and people around me thought it was crazy, and so talking about it more wouldn’t help, I had to show them. And I was really proud that I fought for what I wanted, ’cause I’m really proud of the book that came out of it. So, if you’re really convinced that your idea is a good one, and it has to be created, fight for it.
#2: Used the Structure I wanted
The second thing is I used a structure that I wanted, too. I was really adamant that… I hate reading books that have long, long, long chapters. It really bothers me, right? Most books have these crazy long chapters, and I would find myself reading the same page over, and over, and over again, and I would find myself forgetting where I left off, and I hate closing a book in the middle of a chapter, ’cause then, I forget what happened. I want to end it at the end of the chapter.
End it on bulleted paragraph, something. Some clear demarcation so I know where to pick up the next time, and so what I wanted to do was be able to have a book where every page was easy to read, like the language itself was easy to read, but you could pick it up at any point and exit at any point. And so, if you look, for those of you have the book, you know what I’m talking about. See like, there’s the end, I could stop there. I could flip to the next page.
Right, there’s another chapter title at the start, right? Whatever page you’re on, there’s a clear point to stop reading if you want. It flows, but there’s a clear point to stop reading. I have quotes at the top of almost every page, and I like that format, and at the start, again, my publisher wasn’t a fan of it, and my way around that was just to not tell them, and just keep going with it.
“I was frustrated with the regular book experience, and so I created one that I thought was a better one, and thankfully, a lot of you guys agree.” – Evan Carmichael
They wanted longer paragraphs, longer pages, and not have so many quotes at the top, and I just kept going, basically to the point where we got to deadline and it was going to be too late to change it, and again, I’m so glad that I did that because it’s been one of the things that people like most about the book, aside from the content, which is amazing, right? People like that it’s easy to read, and that you can pick it up at any point, and there’s a lot of motivational quotes and things that tie in.
A lot of practical examples, and so I’m really happy that I stayed with the structure that I had in my mind, as well. And this is generally a good lesson. If you’re frustrated with something, you know, I was frustrated with the typical reading experience. Let me find an example. Here’s an example. Here’s something. Somebody gave me this book. Legendary book, said it changed their life. A lot of people talked about this book, Atlas Shrugged.
Legendary book, and I load it, and it’s like, look at, look at this. Look at that. It’s just 1,000 pages of intense stuff, and so I need to prepare myself to read this book, and it’s only because it became so highly recommended that it’s even still sitting on my shelf. Otherwise, it’s crazy. And so, if you’re frustrated with an experience, you’re frustrated with reading books like that, you’re frustrated with anything that’s happening in your life, it creates an opportunity.
That’s what entrepreneurs do, right? We solve problems. We see a problem, and instead of complaining about it, we find a solution, which is what I tried to do in the book. I was frustrated with the regular book experience, and so I created one that I thought was a better one, and thankfully, a lot of you guys agree.
#3: Get A Test Audience
The number three thing I did right was I got a test audience. This was another surprising, really interesting thing that is not done in the publishing industry. So, I finished my manuscript, had 120,000 words, and I said well, how do we split test the titles, and how do we split test the cover, and how do we split test the content to see, right, like in the movie business, they’ll make a movie, and then they’ll put it in front of a test audience, and they’ll see what their reaction was.
Did people cry when you wanted them to cry?
Were they yawning and falling asleep in the movie or not, and what points did they enjoy, not enjoy?
When you’re looking at creating a new product, you go to a test audience. Here’s a new chocolate bar I want to make. Okay, let’s go sample it and see what people think. Oh, there’s too much peanuts, oh, there’s too much corn syrup, whatever, right? You test it, you test, you test a product.
Great products come when you mix what you love doing with what the market wants, right?
The business basics. Yes, you have to love it. Yes, you have to see an opportunity. Yes, you have to create something from your soul, and at the same time, the audience has to like it. There has to be a need for it. Otherwise, you’re just in a hobby. You’re doing something that you love, but nobody cares about it, so you’re just often a hobby. I didn’t want this to be a hobby. I wanted this to have an impact, and in the publishing world, there is no sampling.
There is no test audience. It’s just not done, which was surprising, and so I said, okay, I’m going to make my own test audience. If this isn’t part of the system, this isn’t part of the process, I’m going to make it part of the process, ’cause that’s how you launch a successful product, and so I got 30 people, half of whom were entrepreneurs and half of whom were not entrepreneurs. I felt like it would do well with the entrepreneurs. I wasn’t so sure about the non-entrepreneurs, but it’s good to get their feedback, regardless. And I gave them the 120,000 word manuscript, and they went through it. I got it back after them, and they highlighted.
“When you’re looking at creating a new product, you go to a test audience.” – Evan Carmichael
I kept track of who highlighted what. Not so much concerned about this person’s individual opinion, but as a whole. These 30 people who reviewed it. What were the most highlighted passages? What were the comments that people liked the most? What were some parts that people found were really confusing? And, I took that to take my 120,000 word manuscript down to the 65,000 words that we have today. I cut out the chapters that people didn’t resonate with as much.
I added chapter highlights from the quotes that people underlined the most, right? Knowing how people react to your stuff can help you make a better product. And so, I’m super glad that I went through that exercise, and also really grateful to the 30 people who reviewed it for me, ’cause it gave me a lot of insanely valuable information that I could take the book from 120,000 words down to 65, and my agent wants to take that other 55,000 words that we cut out and turn that into a book? No, that’s not, that’s not, that’s not a book.
I’ll throw away that book. If I’m going to do another book, it’ll be somethin’ totally different, and I think that’s part of being an entrepreneur, too, and being good at what you do, is you create and throw away more than what most people even try to make.
So many people just sit there with an idea and do nothing with it. Where the success entrepreneurs, they try. They try, they try, they try, they create, they create, they create, they are prolific with their creations, and not everything is going to hit, and that’s okay, and you take the best and you keep moving forward with it, and the stuff that didn’t work, it’s great, and I think it’s good to get into the practice of creating and throwing away more than most people will even just create. Throw away more than most people even try to create.
You will fail your way to success, and so I’m really glad I had my test audience because they gave me the critical information, and then also, when I was going through the back and forth with the editor, and the publisher to say, “Hey, keep this, “don’t keep this.”. I had data. It’s not just my opinion, ’cause they had opinions, they’d say, “Oh, we don’t like this.”, or “We like this.”. Well listen, we tested it, here’s what people think. Real life people who are entrepreneurs and not entrepreneurs who are going to read the book. Here’s what they think, and we will use that test data to be able to fight for the parts that I really wanted to incorporate into the book. So, really helpful.
#4: Did It Myself
The number four thing I did right was I did it myself. Getting into this industry, I realized how many books are not actually written by the author. There’s ghost person with no credit, their audiobooks are read by somebody else. It’s just basically putting their name on the front of a book, and I definitely had a team who helped me, but most of the parts that are in the book, and all of the parts that are opinion pieces, it was me, I wrote it.
I wrote it, it may have been edited, it may have been corrected, some grammatical issues, but I wrote it, and it was one of the, actually the best things from the editors was they were, they went through everything with a fine-tooth comb, and there’s actually still a few errors and typos we found in the book, but they went through everything and corrected a lot of the grammar, which is great.
“Doing it myself was a super important part of the book’s success.” – Evan Carmichael
I’m super grateful for that, but I wrote it. It’s my words, it’s my content, it’s my meat, and I think as a result, the product is better. I remember I was picking up an audiobook for a book I was really excited to read, I forget what it was, and then I found out that the person wasn’t actually the person. It was read by some actor.
It’s great, it’s nothing against the actor, it’s just not the person. It’s not the guy. I want to hear from the guy, and so when we talked about doing the audiobook, I insisted on doing it. Now, they wanted me, which was good. Most authors don’t want to put in the work to do it, and of course I’m going to do it. I need to do it. It’s my book! It’s my voice, I need to get it out there! So really, I think doing it myself was a super important part of the book’s success.
#5: Got A Team
And the number five thing I did right was I also got a team. As much as point number four was I did it myself, I got a team for all the things that I wasn’t good at, or I wasn’t having a lot of success at, or I just needed help with, right? So, I had my two agents who made sure that a deal happened, and helped me find the right publisher with Penguin Random House, where we found the publisher who cared, who liked the message, who was on board, who supported the vision, and that was important, ’cause I don’t know if I would have gotten that on my own, and I didn’t want to publish without a publisher.
I had people who helped with some of the research on the book. I think about all of the quotes that are in the book, and how many of them Jason helped find for me, and just helped being an amazing filter so I didn’t have to go out and do all of the research. One of my friends, another entrepreneur, Jennifer, helped me with a lot of the interviews that I was doing. The third part of this book is me interviewing people who were also living their one word, and also plotted to their business, and went from $50,000 dollars full-time income up to $150 million dollars in revenue off of their one word, and so sitting down and interviewing them.
“Understand what you’re really good at and going all in on that, and surrounding yourself with people who can support you in the other projects.” – Evan Carmichael
What I find is when I’m doing an interview, I’m either in the present and with that person, or I’m taking notes, and have a hard time doing both, and so, Jen sat in with me on hours and hours and hours of interview. Each one was three to four hours, at least. She was takin’ the notes, and she asked a couple of great questions, too, and then she compiled the notes and put it together, and it was really helpful, and so if the words aren’t my words, right? If the words were Christopher Gavigan from the Honest Company, then she would write those words, and the words that were me, I wrote, which is most of the book.
But, super helpful that we had that team. The guys who are on the audio side were paying so much attention to the quality and the detail, and the audiobook came out fantastic in a way that I wouldn’t be able to do myself, and so I think it’s really important to understand where it is that you shine. I want to come up with a strategy, I want to come up with the ideas, I want to write the content that’s coming from my voice, my opinions.
I want to be the voice when we’re doing the audio recording. I want to be the guy on the video, there’s video bonuses for people that bought the ebook. I want to be that because that’s the most important use of my time. The other stuff, I’m not great at, and we can get it done a lot faster if I had people around me, and so I think that’s important to any successful launch of any product. Understand what you’re really good at and going all in on that, and surrounding yourself with people who can support you in the other projects.
What I Did Wrong
So, those were the five things I did right, now let’s get to the five things that I did wrong.
#1: Bulk Orders VS 1/2/5
Up first is the bulk orders versus the one, two, five. I really focused on bulk orders, ’cause I was told to focus on bulk orders, right? I think you buy the one, but then you can also buy 10, and then 25, forget what the different packages were of books.
And one of the bits of advice that came back from one of the guys on my team was, “You should do a package for two and a package for five. “If you buy two books, you get this, “you buy five books, you get this.”, and the advice came while we’re already into the process, and the website was pretty much built with all the offers, and I didn’t take it, and I should’ve.
Where I think a lot of people jumping from one book to 10 books is a big jump, but some people would buy two books, and if you give them an incentive to do it, or buy five books and give them an incentive to do it, they would. So, most of the sales that you end up making are going to be at the lower end, as opposed to people buying 100 books at a time, and so giving some kind of reward and incentive for somebody to buy one extra book, or four extra books, could really make a difference.
#2: Lead Time On Layout
Number two is the lead time on the cover and on the creative. So, this is something that I did not anticipate. One of the things I was really adamant on, was I wanted each page to be the end, so as I, let me load up any page. Random page. Oh, actually this one works.
Okay, so you see how here, it’s at the top, there’s a header, there’s a quote, and then there’s content? And if I flip to the next page, it’s not, right? It’s in the middle, oh where am I, here. It’s in the middle, and there’s a quote and content, and down on this side, it’s in the middle, quote, content.
I wanted it to be at the top. I wanted each page to be at the top. I wanted the headline to be at the top, and then a quote, and then each thing underneath, and we couldn’t make it work. It was either I’m so adamant about that structure that I walk away from the deal, because with the timeline set up, we couldn’t make it work, ’cause I wasn’t using the right template, and I’m looking at 65,000 words, having to rewrite and re-shift everything around. It wouldn’t work for the timeline, and so that was super frustrating.
#3: Lead time On Cover
Also, the cover, I’m actually not a huge fan of. The cover was, the cover came really late in the process. I, again, not knowing this process, assumed that we’d have time to go back and forth and work with different designers, and split test ideas, and it’s not, it was basically here’s the idea from our art department, what do you think? And the only room was for a couple minor tweaks and improvements, and then that’s basically what you go with.
Well, we need an idea, we need a final version in two weeks. It’s like… If you don’t have a designer, if you don’t have that skill in-house to go out and find somebody and get everything done, and get it approved. We just ran out of time. That was on me, assuming that we would have enough time.
“I’d start designing the cover from the beginning to make sure that that art is just as good as the content and the art that’s inside the book. I think it’s important.” – Evan Carmichael
I assumed that the cover matters, the cover is important, the cover we would spend a good amount of time on. Now, my publisher loves the cover. My agent loves the cover. I’m not a big fan of the cover. But, again, it’s one of those things.
Do I want to hold up the launch of this book because of the cover? Am I going to walk away from the deal because of the cover? No, because the content inside is really, really good, and if I did it again in terms of another book, I’d make sure I have a lot of lead time. I’d start designing the cover from the beginning to make sure that that art is just as good as the content and the art that’s inside the book. I think it’s important.
#4: Importance of Credo
The number four thing I did wrong was understanding the importance of the credo. The credo has become such an important part of the process, as I walk people through it offline. So, the credo is the three things that make up your one word. So, you got your one word, and then the three things that add clarity make up the credo, and so I have believe, and in the believe, there’s passion, you know, believe in what you’re doing.
There’s confidence, which is believe in yourself, and there’s conviction, which is believe that it’s going to work out. So, believe, the one word, breaks down into passion, self-confidence, and conviction, and that is a extremely valuable exercise for people to go through, and it’s in the book, but it’s in the campaign section of the book, where I realize in talking to people and going through the process afterwards, that really, it should part of core, because that understanding is not just about marketing, which is campaign, it’s about you.
“There’s confidence, which is believe in yourself, and there’s conviction, which is believe that it’s going to work out.” – Evan Carmichael
It helps you with your life, and you make important decisions, and you live a better version of what you want to do, and so it’s buried more into the campaign section instead of being more upfront in the credo. So, if I had rewrite the content, that’s one thing that I’d really focus on.
Moving the credo earlier and making it more important. It’s something that I walk people through when I’m coaching them individually, the people on my team, but it’s not nearly important enough in the book. So, for those of you who have it, pay extra special attention to the limited pages on the credo, because it’s really important.
#5: Importance of Leadership
And number five is underestimating the importance on leadership. I don’t really talk about leadership in this book. I never really thought of it as a leadership book. It was more as a self-leadership book, I guess you to manage yourself, and the people that build the team and hire the right people, but not how to lead people with their one word, and understand them to be better, and I’ve been getting a lot of interviews, a lot of requests, a lot of speaking opportunities around leadership, and it’s been so interesting how people are using the book. So, we have CEOs and entrepreneurs reading the book, and I think about their team, and they realize, huh, my team should go through this.
Everybody should find their one word and find their credo, and if I understand what their one word is, and I understand what their credo is, then I know how to push them to get the best thing that they want. So, as an example, any organization will have goals, right? We want to hit this amount in revenue. We all have these common goals that we’re shooting towards, but how we go and execute that, and how we motivate and push people will be different, so if our goal is to hit a million dollars in revenue, and I’ve got somebody under me who they’re responsible for driving that project forward. What’s their one word?
“Everybody should find their one word and find their credo, and if I understand what their one word is, and I understand what their credo is, then I know how to push them to get the best thing that they want.” – Evan Carmichael
If their one word is grit, then I have to push them around gettin’ the work done and not making excuses, and let’s go, go, go, go. If their one word is creativity, then I have to push them around coming up with creative ideas. I know that if I’m just telling them exactly what to do, somebody whose one word is creativity is going to suffocate, ’cause they need to be creative, right? We still have our goal of what we want to accomplish, but the path to get there will change based on the people that you have underneath you, and often what you’ll find is when you break down the credo, there’s one part of that at least, that people are falling short of, so if self-confidence is part of somebody’s credo, and you see them not being self-confident, you’re given the tools to help push them. I believe a leader’s role is to take somebody who you see has a lot of potential. They could be up here, they’re down here right now.
Your job is to help them close the gap. That’s your job as a leader, is to see potential and help close the gap. And so, by understanding somebody’s one word and their credo, they’re giving you the tools to help them. ‘Cause if you think everybody thinks like you, they don’t. If you think everybody has the same values and credo as you, they don’t. And so, understanding that, and not just seeing everybody as you, and everybody as, well, here’s how I would solve it. That’s not going to help everybody. There’s going to be a ton of people who won’t be able to solve the problem the exact same way you do, and that’s where leaders often mess up.
That’s why a lot of, you look at in baseball, some of the best baseball hitters make terrible coaches, ’cause they just try to teach people how they do it, where what you need to do is understand them to teach them in a way that makes sense to them, and knowing what their credo and their one word is. It’s giving you the tools to say this is what I feel is important to me, and so when you see them falling short on those things, you know how to push them, and it’s not pushing them for you.
Yes, if they do well, it helps the company, but it’s pushing them for them. They’ve told you that this is important to them. They’ve told you creativity, or believe, or confidence is important to them, and so when they’re not living up to their own expectations, you know how to push them. So, it’s been such an important leadership tool, and a lot of that stuff isn’t in the book. It almost makes sense as a sequel, although it’s not the next book that I want to write. So, anyway, I wish that was somewhere in the book, and if I was rewriting it again, I would include that.
So, those are the five things I did right, and the five things that I did wrong that I would keep in mind for the next time I’m writing a book, and hopefully you guys learned from it as well. Let me jump to some of the questions that came in recently from you guys.
Okay, first up is replicant70. “Bless you, Evan. “Your excitement is so infectious. “I pre-ordered the copy already, “so a study group format would really enhance “my experience of your work. “Also, as someone who is also super keen to write “a book of his own, capturing your book publishing journey “is mega valuable to me. “Could all the relevant videos be bundled up “into a book writing toolbox? “You so deserve your success “for all the value you are giving “to so many people all over the world. “Don’t ever leave us, my friend.”.
Lots of love in here, I really appreciate it. So, we’re just finishing, we just finished seven weeks of the book club. I made the book club, which was a virtual hangout. We hung out once a week for an hour and talked about different chapters. There’s seven chapters, so each was its own hangout, and I did that that because I want people to get it. I want people to read the book, not just buy 10 copies and have them sit on your shelf. Read it, do the exercises, I want you to get value.
It’s important to me that you read it and apply it to your life and your business, and get results from it, and not just buy another book that does nothing for you. So, that was a really exciting process that we just finished last week. All of the videos that are around Your One Word, there is a playlist. If you go to the main channel and scroll down, there’s one of the playlists, I think it’s called Your One Word. All the videos that I’ve done, that I’ve documented from the beginning, from the idea to the writing, to the excitement of launching, to the pains of negotiate, and all the problems I went through.
Every week, there’s a new video that I’ve been putting up for, I don’t know, two years. So, there’s lots to learn. I would encourage you, if you’re trying to write your own book, to go through that experience, and hopefully, you’ll be able to learn what it takes to write a book with a major publisher. That was the intention to be able to document the series, and also have it as an educational tool for everybody else who’s writing a book. And in terms of leaving you, you know, I do the things that I love doing, and right now, I still love YouTube, I still love makin’ videos. It’s my favorite platform to connect with people, and as long as I love doin’ it, as long as you guys are enjoying it, I will still be here.
Next up, Luke William. “Evan, how can I get a signed copy of your book? “I just finished listening on Audibles “and I’d love to have a signed copy. “Hastag #believe.”
Best way to get a signed copy is to come to Toronto, and let’s meet and bring a copy. There’s been people who I’ve had coffee with and talked about their business. There’s been some people who just stopped by, you know I was at Toronto Dance Salsa doing something else, and just a quick five minutes in the hallway.
If you’re ever in the city, you want to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world and potentially meet, but I can’t guarantee that we’re going to be able to have time to grab a coffee, but at least for five minutes, just to maybe take a selfie and sign the book, I’d be happy to. That’s the best way. Otherwise, if I’m on the road, I’m coming to LA, and Orlando, and Paris. You know, if I’m ever in the city that you’re in, the best way there is if you’re on my newsletter list, I’ll email the people in that city that I’m going to, and we usually find a way to meet up if I have some extra time.
Next up is Nora. “Thank you, Evan, for the shout out, “I really appreciate it. “I’m reading your book, “still trying to figure out my one word. “I am between two, explore, and create, “and it’s hard to find a common word connecting them both. “Any advice would be greatly appreciated.”.
This actually is common when people have multiple words and they’re trying to figure out how do I get it down to one? I get that there’s a, you want to get it, you want the sense of accomplishment, you want to rush to it and say, here it is, here’s my goal, I got it! You know, I accomplished it. As entrepreneurs, we are go-getters. I really encourage you to take your time to figure it out. This is one of the most important exercises you’re ever going to do in your life. In my opinion, understanding yourself, having that self-awareness, and then building an entire life and business around it. It’s important to spend the time to make sure you get it done properly.
I know that may be hard to hear for us out and about go-getters, but it’s also important to make sure that you have the right one. So, when going through this exercise, I encourage people to look at two things. The first is, see if one fits under the other. So, you have create and explore. I talked about having the one word and then the credo underneath. The credo is the three things that help define your one word. Believe equals passion, equals self-confidence, equals conviction. That’s what it means to me. Does one fit under the other? So, you have explore and create. Could explore be your one word, and create is under it, and you have two others that are under explore.
Or, could create be your one word and explore is under it, and you have two more next to explore. Are they equal level of importance, or can one fit under the other? It’s a really important question because once you start adding some definition to it, you can often realize that this one helps me define the other one, and the other one is actually the most important. If they are equal importance to you, then I’d be looking at, okay, what is one thing above it? Right, I use the example in my book of my father, who was going through. He had heart, was his one word, but he didn’t know it. He ended up with, he started with he loves, he cares about people.
Massively cares, he’s just a genuine human being and doesn’t like to see suffering, and he loves adventure. Motorcycles, and zip-lining, and fun adventures. So, how do those, those seem totally opposite. I mean, at least create and explore are kind of close. His seemed totally opposite. Caring and adventure seemed totally opposite, and what came down to was heart. Heart is both. Heart is caring for people, and heart is going off and doing something adventurous, your heart gets pumping, and so that worked out for him. So, that’s a little creative way to figure it out. Is there something that can connect create and explore?
At the surface, it feels like the first one, where one fits under the other, but at the end of the day, this is your one word. This is who you are. It has to be something that you love, and the more you sleep on it, and the more you think about it, it’ll either become more and more right or more and more wrong. If you doubt it more, and more, and more, and more, then it’s wrong. If you like it more, and more, and more, and more, then it’s right. And so with time, it’ll add more clarity.
Last up is Anita. “I missed it again! “We need some calendar and notification system. “Please think of something. “J-Ryze and Mihovilj have put their heads into this too. “Go team.”.
I think this was in relation to one of the live book streams that I did. I don’t know if I’m doing any more of the book live hangouts, we’ll see where it goes. The book series is something to play with now, right. It was easy to talk about what I was doing, and then the book was finished, and so it became, okay, how am I going to market the book, and then that came out, and then the book was launched, and I did the live hangouts, and so now we’re into this interesting phase where I’m thinking what do I do with this books series? I’d love your feedback if you guys want to put something in the comments below, and see how this series continues, or maybe it doesn’t, and we do some other new series. In terms of notifications for any live session, the easiest way is one, if you subscribe, obviously it’s easy.
You get notified by email. And two, if you click that bell. You see a lot of YouTubers now saying click the bell. You’ll get notifications. We are thinking about some other method. Either from our website or newsletter or something. The major ones I’ll do on my newsletter, if it’s a big hangout on the main channel. I also have another channel just for live hangouts, and so if you want more live stuff and you want to ask me questions one-on-one, that’s a great place to subscribe to. We’ll link it up and you can head over there and subscribe. And then, also, Friday mornings, I play League of Legends on Twitch, and I answer questions. And so, if you have a question, you want to hit me up live, every Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern, you could jump on with other members of Believe Nation. You can chat, you can watch me play League of Legends and cheer me on as well as answer your business questions to help you with your one word or whatever else your facing in your business.
So, that’s it for now, guys. It’s a long video, but I wanted to get my thoughts and help answer some questions. I learned a lot in this entire process, and I’m better armed with more information for the next time through. Again, I would love your feedback and thoughts and questions around the book, if you have any questions you want to share, put it down in the comments, and I’ll answer you next week, and also your thoughts on what you want this series to look like and how you want it to continue, super your feedback. Leave it down below. Thank you guys so much. I believe in you. I hope you continue to believe in yourself, and whatever your one word is. Much love. I’ll see you soon.
