I ask: What could be a better birthday present?
Now, a few people have…Continue

It’s Day 4 of my book tour, and I’ve slept in a different bed every night so far. A leaky air mattress on a floor in Mountain View, a couch in Marin, and a comfy spare bedroom in San Francisco. Luckily my other hubs will involve only two or three cities near each airport instead of seven!
My first event was basically a warm-up, a talk over dinner with some Stanford students at a co-op house where 50 students live. Half the students left as soon as they finished their vegan burgers…

When I was a marketing executive mingling in direct selling circles (think: Tupperware and Mary Kay), I heard a speaker once tell a crowd of salespeople that the secret to her success was “open your mouth.”
She didn’t have magic fliers or special gifts for hosts or exactly the right words to say, she just put herself out there and talked to people about the products and opportunity she had to offer (thanks, Lisa K.).

We all know the oft-repeated bad news: the publishing world, which was always going to hell in a handbasket, is now rushing down the mountain on steroids. Translation: there's little opportunity or money to be had when it comes to getting big publishers to promote their writers, send them on tour, and pick up the tab. I remember a friend of mine, who has written nine bestsellers, telling me that in the good old days, she actually had a credit card from her publisher that she could use to…Continue
