12. Accelerate Your Influence by Writing a Book With Josh Steimle

Writing your own book is a powerful way to accelerate your influence and build credibility.

But getting the first words onto a blank page can feel overwhelming, let alone writing an entire book.

In this episode, Matt Halloran talks to Josh Steimle, the founder of Published Author, creator of The 7 Systems of Influence, and host of The Published Author Podcast. Josh has generated over $10M in revenue for his businesses by building a thought leadership system around books, speaking appearances, and over 300 articles. Now, he’s helping you get started on your new book, understand the publishing process, and get strategies to leverage your book to grow your business.

You will learn:

  • How to use a “vomit draft” to lay the groundwork for your book
  • Strategic steps to take after your book is published
  • Why a small group of fans is all you need to make your book a success
  • How Josh uses the synergy between his podcasts and books to multiply his revenue
  • And more!
