Coaching Session

I had my 1 hour coaching session yesterday. This is the summary: As I suspected, book signings are pretty much a waste of time for marketing and sales purposes, unless you are a celebrity. It is better to spend your time and resources developing a web presence, such as website and blogs. Internet radio is another avenue. The most important thing is to make yourself known as an  expert or person of note.
