Never Stop Learning: The Skills of Self-Publishing – Love Your Work, Episode 112

February 12 2018 – 07:30am

never stop learning

As regular listeners know, I recently self-published for the first time. I traditionally-published my first book, Design for Hackers, and I had a good experience. I liked having the extra support for getting my book laid out and printed, and onto shelves around the world, and as a first-time author, I really needed the vote of confidence and accountability of a publishing contract.

But this time around, with my new book The Heart to Start, I had a lot to learn. Fortunately, it turned out that I had already built many of the skills I needed to self-publish.

I’m glad that I never stopped learning. Whether you dream of publishing a book, or of doing something else, today’s article will help inspire you to keep learning.
