More Reasons to Love The Fine Art of Shameless Self Promotion

Week one of The Fine Art of Shameless Self Promotion book launch is almost over, but the momentum has just begun.  Have you bought your copy yet?  What are you waiting for?  All the cool kids are reading it.  No, seriously.  I wouldn't have written this book and offered it on the interwebs if I didn't think it was worth buying.  It's a true labor of love, years in the making and it's something I think anyone who wants to work for themselves and get off of the hamster wheel of working for someone else should read.  It's funny, it's irreverent, it's thoughtful, it's painfully honest and it's not just a read, it's an opportunity for you to actively participate in creating your brand, fine tuning your message, assessing your strengths and weaknesses and forging a clear cut pathway to your uniquely fabulous success.

Why did I write a book on The Fine Art of Shameless Self Promotion?  Here's an excerpt:

 "I think this just might be the toughest part of being an entrepreneur.  We’ve been taught not to be boastful or egocentric.  Plus it feels weird talking about ourselves in public.  It’s not done.  It’s especially difficult for shy people, but even extroverts have problems with this aspect of PR. 

You can’t create success in a vacuum.  You have to tell people who you are and what you do and why it matters!  In fact, they need to hear your message several times before it truly sinks in.  This is why we are bombarded with the same commercials, slogans and campaign messages over and over again. You can get the word out without being smarmy or smug.  It’s all about your approach.  If you make people feel connected to you and excited for you, they’ll want to hear your message.  If you can make them feel as if they’re a part of your success, they’ll cheer you on.  If you make them feel like their being sold, they’re going to tune you out." from The Fine Art of Shameless Self Promotion by Margot Potter

I wrote it because I think most people are deeply uncomfortable with self promotion and it's crucial for the entrepreneur to learn how to broadcasting their message effectively.  Your business, your brand, your product, your message is a kick ass party you are throwing and no one is going to come if you don't send out invitations!  Here is what a few folks have to say about the book:
