In a nutshell, here is what today’s guest, , does: She is a New York Times bestselling author who midwifes bestselling books and 6- and 7-figure book deals and leads monthly writing retreats in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. Meaning, her expertise is books and she has leveraged that expertise into a 6-figure mediapreneur business helping aspiring authors (how cool is that?!).

Today on the show, I dig into two major topics with Linda that you are going to love:

  1. Why mediapreneurs like us SHOULD write a book (and why we have an unfair advantage)
  2. How Linda became known as a book expert and why she decided to focus her revenue mostly on offline retreats (very interesting business model, indeed!)

Enjoy all the awesomeness below. And make sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments section!
