Ken DunnWhy must the way we read, write and experience books be changed?

Jerson claims the old model of this is broken. Why? Because first time authors don’t stand a chance with the old model. The new model associated with Reader’s Legacy is an author- centered process. In other words, authors control and fund the process (at the same rate with other publishers). Reader’s Legacy also handles the distribution process. And “High Bred Publishing” has been created which is a social media site and a functions as a virtual version of their library. People can buy books via the site utilizing “Lit Coins.” See more here. 

Perhaps you can relate to this because you want to publish a book. But even if you don’t there is a more powerful message in this podcast. It’s about honoring your VISION. Honoring your vision also requires your commitment to working through adverse moments.

Your vision must possess you even when you are in the most adverse parts of your journey. Ken says, “if you’re not growing, you’re dying.” This is about the road of constant reinvention and expansion with doses of adversity.

This is what Ken Dunn realized which sculpted the backbone of Reader’s Legacy. Ken had to acknowledge certain aspects of our current world, such as the power of Social Media and the Internet. Whether we like it or not, Social Media is part of life now, people shop online and people still like reading books. Putting all those facets together allowed the creation of Reader’s Legacy.

Why is COURAGE important in running a business?

According to Jen, it’s about motivation and passion. Courage is more exhilarating than the fear of the loss. The commonality entrepreneurs all possess is that we see what others don’t see.

In this episode we’ll cover:

  • Why your Vision guides you through adversity
  • Why Adversity is part of the growth process
  • The importance of revolutionising what you do. Constantly!
  • How Courage is more exhilarating than FEAR
  • If you’re not growing you’re dying
  • How Reader’s Legacy revolutionizes the way people read, and experience books.
