In a nutshell, here is what today’s guest, Linda Sivertsen, does: She is a New York Times bestselling author who midwifes bestselling books and 6- and 7-figure book deals and leads monthly writing retreats in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA.¬†Meaning, her expertise is books and she has leveraged that expertise into a 6-figure mediapreneur business helping aspiring authors (how cool is that?!).

Today on the show, I dig into two major topics with Linda that you are going to love:

  1. Why mediapreneurs like us SHOULD write a book (and why we have an unfair advantage)
  2. How Linda became known as a book expert and why she decided to focus her revenue mostly on offline retreats (very interesting business model, indeed!)

Enjoy all the awesomeness below. And make sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments section!

    • David Siteman Garland

      Awesome great insights. Much more to come!

  • Hey David I enjoyed this and seeing how Linda is building her business. I too have noticed a trend towards this. People buy my products, and programs but when we ran a Mastermind in person retreat last year that was a game changer. Looking forward to running it again this year. Great interview and timely as I’m in the process of writing my book and launching it in July at WDS
