TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hi there, my friend. Welcome back to another episode of the Coach with Clarity podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough and today I am very excited to introduce you to my good friend, colleague, and editor, Jodi Brandon of Jodi Brandon Editorial. I have known Jodi for several years, and she was integral in my process of writing my first book, ACT on Your Business. I worked with Jodi throughout, from developing the concept, to writing the book, to publishing it, and finally putting it out there in the world and marketing it. And Jodi is one of the smartest people I know when it comes to the process of writing your book, and then sharing it with the world, and I thought that December of 2020 would be a great time to talk about writing a book because one of the questions I get from a lot of coaches is, should I write a book, how do I go about doing it, how do I use it to build my business? And so I wanted to really start off the conversation by speaking to an expert in the process, and that's why I am so thrilled to have Jodi on. I think in our interview you are going to find not only does she really know her stuff, but she's got such a clear process around supporting people as they bring their book to life and then share it with the people who most need to hear their voice. So I am absolutely thrilled to share my interview with Jodi Brandon.
