How to Self Publish Your Book

With Chandler Bolt

Will having your own book help you land more speaking gigs? Should you write a book before even trying to land your first speaking job? And how exactly do you navigate the self-publishing waters if and when you decide to write your own book?

The man to answer those questions is none other than Chandler Bolt, and he’s our guest for episode 67 of The Speaker Lab!

Chandler is the founder and visionary creator of Self-Publishing School, a site devoted to helping you write, market and publish your own book in 90 days. The site also helps you leverage that book into coaching, speaking and other gigs.
