  1. Great conversation. As far as getting yourself out there, I know several people who have written books. They see it as a very expensive business card. I think blogging is a great first step. Contribute to the community. If you can get in video (Youtube) then do that. Speak at conferences. Get good at it. Take courses on public speaking if you need to.

    I call it “hem of the garment syndrome”. People will read your words and they will want to see your face. So they will see your videos and they will want to see you speak at a conference. They will see you at a conference and they will want to have a conversation with you (as long as you provide value along the way). At every step getting closer to the hem of the garment.

    In the end… they will want a conversation… and to buy your product. Your job is to be good enough at every step of the process so that they are compelled to further engage.

    Anyways… great conversation, guys. I really enjoyed it.
