In addition to these gentlemen, we hear from our first female guests, Lisa B. Marshall and Natalie Sisson, along with author and speaker Ken Davis, and the author of my favorite book of 2013, Todd Henry.
Hear Our Conversations Now
Much like last week’s Vol. 1 edition, it was very hard to narrow the list down to the seven authors you’ll hear from today. Having said that, it was fun going back through the conversations to cherry pick my favorite moments.
For a list of each author highlighted, along with a link to their original episode and a link to their latest book, simply scroll down to the bottom of this post. But, before you do, be sure to enter for your chance to win one of three free books!
Win an Autographed Book!
Today’s episode also brings with it a chance to win one of three different books! They include:
To win one of these gems, you need to take ALL of the following three actions:
- Leave a comment on this post stating which book you hope to win and why (scroll down to comment). Be creative!
- Fill out this special form with your name and address
- Tweet this sentence by clicking the link at right: Tweet: Win 1 of 3 books from the #ReadtoLead podcast with @THEjeffbrown! Find out more here: http://ctt.ec/BxG06+
Yes, I realize tweeting this lessens your chances of winning – as more people are likely to enter – but I hope you’ll agree that potentially providing you with a free book is a fair exchange. I will choose the winners and notify each via e-mail by Saturday morning, January 4, 2014. If you don’t hear from me by Saturday, you can assume you didn’t win.
I hope you win. Good luck!
Attend Podcaster Academy FREE When You Join Podcasters’ Paradise
John has recently launched Podcasters’ Paradise, an online community for podcasters complete with tutorial videos, various templates and other how-tos. In fact, right now there are over 300 hundred podcasters already participating.
If you’ve listened to my podcast recently, you might be saying to yourself, “But wait Jeff. Don’t you offer an online course for podcasters yourself called Podcaster Academy?” I do indeed and…
I think it makes a great compliment to Podcasters’ Paradise, in that the focus of my course is on, not so much launching your podcast and understanding the technology, but sharpening your communication skills by helping you sound more confident and conversational and raising your interviewing skills to a whole new level.
Here’s the best part: When you sign up for Podcasters’ Paradise either now or during the webinar, you’ll get my month-long course, complete with one-on-one personalized sessions, absolutely FREE!
I hope you’ll agree this is a great deal. And whether you’ve recently launched a podcast or are going to soon, I think this is the perfect combo for you. Podcasters’ Paradise and Podcaster Academy: two programs for the price of one.
