Amber Vilhauer, who is responsible for launching a multitude of New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Amazon Bestsellers, is on the podcast to talk about how a BOOK can be part of an ecosystem of Great Work. 

Amber dropped a BUNCH of #truthbombs on the podcast this week, but this is one of my favorites.

“Make it about the cause.

Make it about the change.

Make it about the person you are trying to impact.

It doesn’t matter what YOU look like on video…

What matters is how you make other people feel.”

I found her perspective inspiring and illuminating, and I think you will, too!

This week we welcome a leading digital marketing strategist, Amber Vilhauer. Amber is dedicated to supporting and coaching authors and speakers to establish a powerful, integrated online presence. Amber knows that it’s consistency and strategy that gets results and can empower us all to make a difference in our industries.
