how to self publish a book

I am IN LOVE with this week’s podcast episode! My very good friend Dr. Meghan Bathgate came on the show and INTERVIEWED ME!

We talked about:

🚀 What it was like to write, produce and launch a self-published book

🚀 How it feels to know that the book is out in the world

🚀 What change I hope the book will make in the world

🚀 How writing a book is a lot like driving through Toon Town (a la’ Who Framed Roger Rabbit)

This week the tables are turned as Amanda finds herself in the interview hot seat. This week we are excited to welcome her best friend, Dr. Meaghan Bathgate, as our guest host.
