Blogging, speaking, consulting, book-writing, podcasting — How the heck does Jay Baer
of Convince and Convert
get it all done? What's that? That's a good subject for a podcast, you say?
Well, it just so happens we were talking with Jay Baer about those very things and decided to hit record ...
As we always say, we never know the focus of each week's episode of The Work Talk Show until we start talking with the guest. This week was no exception. As we sat down, Jay shared with us that he was planning on starting the writing for his next book, YOUtility,
that weekend. On his last book The Now Revolution
, which he co-authored with Amber Naslund
he had a goal of writing 1,500 words a day until his portion was done. He has a goal again this time as well as a very specific, travel-light window of time to complete the writing. To do so, he's employing tools such as Scrivener
, and more.
Jay also shared the story of how he crowd-sourced his family's move to Indiana. Among the other criteria used he also told us about the site BestPlaces.net
. Like Ann Handley
, Chris Brogan
, and Nick's team, Jay and company also utilize Basecamp
to stay in-sync and on-task. Unlike Krista Parry
(and DJ and Nick) he does not watch Parenthood
DJ gave a shameless plug to Gini Dietrich's
while Nick gave a shout-out to his team for a successful Social Brand Forum
Until next week, see you on the internet!
One more thing ...
No, we don't have a new iPad to announce. Rather, if you liked what you heard (or even if you didn't), head over to iTunes
and give us a quick rating and review to help others find us.
