Writing your first book is a huge undertaking, and getting the right support on your journey can be the deciding factor in whether you achieve your goal, or not. Our guest today, Bob Wheatley, knows this better than anyone and after two and a half years of hard work and dedication is set to release his first book Our Hearts' Desire: How Our Stories Reveal the Thing We Want Most. In our conversation with Bob, we discuss how he first realized that he wanted to write a book and the key lesson he learned from the process. He provides a detailed breakdown of the publishing routes that aspiring authors can choose to pursue, the financial implications, and why he chose to use the hybrid publishing model. He goes on to explain how having a mentor helped him, and why he is so grateful to have learned from the mistakes of others. He also expands on how the skills he learned as a professional athlete helped him pitch up every day, and how to embrace the fact that your first draft won’t be very good. Writing a book takes a tremendous amount of commitment, and while it requires many hours of working in solitude, the only way you’ll deliver the best product possible is by enlisting the help of trusted friends, family, and mentors. If you feel like you have a message in you that you need to share with the world but don’t know where to begin, then this episode is here to give you the tools you need to start your journey!
