006: Guy Kawasaki Interview: Stuff Does Not Sell Itself [Podcast]

If you’ve written a book, or if you’ve even thought about writing a book, you’ve probably considered self-publishing (unless you’ve been offered a big, fat advance).

In this episode of the podcast, I talk with Guy Kawasaki about self-publishing, entrepreneurship, and why you need to own your story.

005: The Secret Trick to Facing Fear [Podcast]

Most people think that in order to start something, you’ve got to be brave. You have to overcome fear. But that’s not true at all.

If I know anything about making difference, about stepping up and taking risks, it’s this: you’ve got to learn to do it afraid.

In this episode of the podcast, we tackle some more questions from readers and listeners and discuss facing fear, launching an eBook, and much more.

Tim Ferriss

We all want to feel more like directors in our lives and less like spectators. We want to be the boss, not the victim. What if a cookbook could help you do that, to take back control of your life?

002: This Might Not Work: A Conversation with Seth Godin About Art [Podcast]

Do you ever feel afraid to share your work with the world? Are you secretly worried that if you created something that mattered, people would hate it? That’s what making art is all about — and why I wanted to interview Seth Godin.

It’s not every day you get to interview one of your heroes. In this conversation with Seth Godin, I got to do just that. For 34 minutes, we talked about art, fear, and making a ruckus.

It was a lot of fun.
