Todays guest is the go to expert if you have a desire to place your words onto paper and become a published author
He is an author, journalist and publisher, and his book ‘Turning your knowledge into income’ shares his philosophy that we all spend a lifetime making payments into our ‘bank of knowledge’ but end up with a dormant account because we don’t make a withdrawal.
He believes that, right now, there is somebody, somewhere that would pay good money to know what you know.
All you need to do is to package up your knowledge in a form that they can buy it.
For people who want to raise their profile in their marketplace or who want to position themselves as an expert in their field, there is nothing like a properly published book to do that.
Fifteen years founded Filament Publishing Ltd fifteen years ago with the mission to help authors, not just to write and publish their book, but also to build a successful business around it.
But there is so much more to this man than what you heard so far, so without further ado its with great delight that we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Christopher Day.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How he believes that waking up everyday in a positive mindset is a choice, and we can make the same choices all through the day.
How even with the internet changing the world, people are actually buying more books than ever before.
How he recalls his English teacher fondly and was inspired by his love of the words of TS Elliott.
Why it is so important to look back at your life, and think “What would I have liked to know when I was in that job”
Why one of the greatest things you can focus on life is being truly present in the moment and let the future take care of itself.
