How to Take 2.5 Months Off and Run Your Business From the Road

This past summer I took 2 1/2 months off after selling our house and my wife and I took to the road and traveled 12,000 miles across and back around the US. We had a great trip exploring the Lewis & Clark Trail and many National Parks. I was able to maintain and manage my online businesses by setting everything up beforehand. In the podcast Let's Talk Tech host Winnie Anderson interviews me about how I did it. Building healthy online products gives you a lot of flexibility to take opportunities as they come but you do need to have some support behind the scenes. In this interview I walk through some of the things I set up and learned doing this trip.

How I Market and Sell Over 4,000 Books a Year on Amazon

In today's video I take you through how I market and sell over 4,300 copies of my books on Amazon a year. I take you through all the methods I use to promote and sell my books on Amazon. Including building custom websites and blogs, social media, video, email and more.

For each category of books I usually build a website or Google Blogger blog around that books topic. I then connect different social media, YouTube videos to the sites. On two of my book series, music and geography, I also set up an email capture box using with a lead magnet of additional content. Once some signs up I send out additional book content along with a book catalog sheet so people can buy.
