314: Why Writing a Book Was the Most Difficult Thing I’ve Ever Done
By Sean McCabe and Ben Toalson
I'm on sabbatical right now as you read this, and I thought it would be a good time to share my experience with writing my first book. After several years of sitting on the back-burner, I finally set aside time to write my book, Overlap. The Overlap book is about getting from where you are in life to where you want to be—purposefully. It's about picking the next thing when you're feeling overwhelmed. It's a guide to transitioning from what you're doing now, that you don't like, to what you really want to be doing. We hear phrases like "do what you love" and "pursue your passion," but those clichés are hardly actionable. When you boil it all down... * What do you literally need to do? * How can you build a business for yourself? * How can you start your own thing? * How can you create financial freedom for yourself? That's what Overlap is about.
