We previously had Tammy as a guest on BlogcastFM nearly two years ago (Tammy Strobel On Growing a Blog from 500 to 6500 Subscribers in 6 Months). A New York Times article that went viral resulted in a media circus around her work, which eventually resulted in a book deal. When I saw on Chris Guillebeau’s wall that her book had been published, I emailed her right away and asked if she’d be willing to bring us up to date on her story.
Here are some of the highlights from our most recent chat:
- The Importance of Deliberate Practice
- The Key to Writing from Your own Experience
- Identifying the Intersections of All Your Skills to Make Money
- 3 Key Questions That Will Help You Determine the Value You Can Provide
- Identifying the Seeds for Products and Services in Your Existing Content
- How to Collaborate with Other People on Product Offerings
- Tammy’s Brainstorming Process for Book Content
- Why Writing a Book is Not a Linear Process
- The Essential Elements of a Killer Book Proposal
- Why the Marketing of Your Book Must Be Planned in Advance
