Allan Karl Quotes from the Interview
By doing the podcast, I’m able to continue to be in front of people to talk about what I do, how I do it, and why it’s important to my audience, to the readers, and potential new readers.
Once you have a podcast and you build a little audience, you’ll find that you’ll be able to create a new network, a new community of fellow authors, and even fellow podcasters.
Let potential meeting planners or people that are hiring speakers know you have a book, and you’ve got your podcast, and you have multiple places where you’re sharing your message or telling your story.
Figure out what you’re comfortable with and choose a set of tools that doesn’t become a hindrance to what you want to do.
You’re authors. You want to tell the story. And you want to bring in other people to help them tell their stories. So don’t let the tools interfere with what you do best.
