The Daily Writer Podcast Will Return on August 15th

Just a quick note to let you know we’re taking a short break from our daily episodes. Over the next month, I’ll be finishing the second draft of the Daily Writer book that releases on November 1st, and I’ll also be making several major improvements to our Daily Writer Club as well as my main website, KentSanders.net. When the podcast returns on August 15th, we will be featuring not one, but TWO weekly interviews with amazing writers and creatives. In addition, we’ll be continuing our several-month-long series on The Writer’s Path, which is a framework for building a writing-based business. In the meantime, I encourage you to go back over the last year’s episodes and listen to the ones you haven’t caught yet… or better yet, re-listen to them because you often catch things the second or third time that you didn’t catch the first. As always, I appreciate you listening and I look forward to returning on August 15th. *** Check out my NEW book: .

3 Successful Writers with Multiple Streams of Income

Today, I want to share three writers who are great examples of what we’ve been talking about in this series. Each of them has a clear message for a specific audience, they use multiple platforms to share their content, they create content consistently (including multiple books), they have been expanding their network for years, and they have used their writing and books as a basis for building multiple streams of income. On this episode, you’ll be encouraged by three examples of successful writers who utilize multiple streams of income to build and grow their businesses. *** Check out my NEW book: .

How Does the Writer's Path Benefit Your Business?

We’ve spent the last couple of weeks talking about several milestones in The Writer’s Path. I want to emphasize again that these are not necessarily sequential in the sense that you can’t move on to the next one until the current one is completed. Rather, these are all just pieces of the larger puzzle of a writing business, and you will continually refine them as you go along. Today I want to share three primary benefits of approaching your writing business in the way I’ve suggested, using The Writer’s Path: On this episode, you’ll discover three key ways that The Writer’s Path transforms your business and your life. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Milestone #7: Practice Key Habits for Wellness, Productivity & Success

Now we’ve come to the final milestone in The Writer’s Path, which is simply this: Practice key habits for wellness, productivity, and success. Why it’s important: Without key habits, you will burn out or have some sort of a train wreck. I have seen it too many times in my life. I have even seen it the last few years with some writers and entrepreneurs I know who got very successful, then they crashed and burned in their personal lives. On this episode, Kent shares why it’s vital to create habits that increase your physical, emotional, mental, and relational health and help you strengthen your relationships. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Milestone #5: Expand Your Network of Friends, Fans & Connections

We’ve talked about several steps in the Writer’s Path, and today we’ll focus on Milestone #5: Expanding your networking of friends, fans, and connections. Why it’s important: One of the biggest things that holds back great writers is not knowing how to network and build relationships. I have learned a lot from Vincent Pugliese in this regard. He leads the Total Life Freedom community and mastermind, and he’s recently released a fantastic book called , which I highly recommend. It will help you develop a mindset of networking and building relationships. On this episode, you’ll discover that one of the most valuable things you can do for your writing business—and your well-being—is connecting with others and expanding your network. *** Check out my NEW book: .

So far in this series, we have looked at the importance of getting clear on your audience and message, building the platforms where you will share your content, and writing consistently. That brings us to Milestone #4: Publishing and marketing books that solve problems for your reader. Why it’s important: Books give you credibility and authority that you cannot get any other way. Books are also a super convenient way for you to share your wisdom with people.

A Declaration Worth Making

On July 4th, 1776, the Second Continental Congress pronounced that it was officially independent of British rule. Known as the Declaration of Independence, this document made it clear that the thirteen colonies had their own sovereign identity. They would no longer be content to stay under the rule of another entity. July 4th is a uniquely American holiday, but there is another kind of declaration that every writer should make, no matter their nationality. On this special July 4th episode, you’ll be emboldened to make your own declaration, just like the Americans who declared their independence in 1776. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Why it’s important: When you write consistent material, specifically blog posts, it helps your SEO (search engine optimization) and also builds an audience. It’s impossible to build an audience, and to create loyal readers, without actually producing content consistently. On this episode, you’ll recognize the power of consistent content creation in your business and writing. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Milestone #2: Build the Platforms Where You Will Share Your Content

Yesterday, we talked about the importance of getting specific about your core message and audience. Let’s move on to Milestone #2: Build the platforms where you will share your content. Why it’s important: When you see other successful writers, it might seem like you should be everywhere. But that’s not the case. The ones who do seem to be everywhere probably have assistants creating a lot of that content, which is totally fine. I have an assistant, also, but that’s only been for the last year or so. Up until then, I did everything myself. On this episode, you’ll discover which platforms you need to build to share your content. *** Check out my NEW book: .

My Story of Traveling the Writer's Path

Now that you have a basic idea of what The Writer’s Path is all about, I’d like to share my story of traveling this pathway myself. I began blogging around 2007 or 2008. I had several blogs and was just writing for fun. I wanted to build a business but didn’t know how. I was a college professor and wanted to create more income to support my family. On this episode, you’ll be inspired by Kent’s story of how he has taken the Writer’s Path to increase his income, maximize his strengths, and pursue success. *** Check out my NEW book: .

The Key Idea Behind the Writer's Path

I was a college professor for many years, so anytime I’m creating content, I begin with what I call a “key idea.” Anytime that I created class material, it always started with the main idea of what I wanted to talk about or accomplish in that class session. As we look at the 7 steps to building a writing business, there is one central idea that ties it all together. Let me give you the key idea, and then I want to break it apart phrase-by-phrase so you can see why each part is so important.

Why Does the Writer’s Path Matter?

Today I want to explore the question, “Why does the Writer’s Path matter?” What’s the point of it, anyway? Why am I doing this series? Here’s what I have observed: Lots of writers are frustrated because they are working hard but not seeing tangible results. You can be the most hard-working, talented writer in the world, but if you don’t have the proper systems and framework in place to help your business grow, you won’t see much success over the long haul. On this episode, you’ll discover the why behind The Writer’s Path, so you can maximize the benefits that this framework provides your writing, your business, and your life. *** Check out my NEW book: .

New Series—The Writer's Path: 7 Steps to Building a Writing Business

You might know (or maybe you don’t) that about a year ago, I left my full-time job as a college professor to do ghostwriting full-time. That’s my main gig, but I also run The Daily Writer Club, which is our membership community, as well as produce this daily podcast. I also write my own books. Most writers have a desire to make money and build either a part-time or full-time career with their writing, so we’re going to lean into this topic for a while. As I’ve thought about my own journey and examined the journey of many other writers I know who have successful businesses, I’ve distilled it down into 7 key components.

What We Relate to as Humans

It’s natural for us to talk about our successes and triumphs. It’s not quite so natural to talk about our mistakes and failures. We’re afraid people will think less of us. Truthfully, though, none of us is perfect. And whenever we see another writer be vulnerable enough to talk about their failures, we relate to it. On today’s episode, you’ll discover how being vulnerable strengthens your relationships and encourages others. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Clint Evans, The Behavior Chef, on Building Healthy Habits

Summertime is now fully upon us, and with that, the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Summer is also the perfect time to take a look at our habits related to health, wellness, exercise, and nutrition. Let’s face it—it’s easy to live a sedentary life as a writer. But what good is it to build a business around our writing, or write lots of books, only to lack energy and cut our lives short because we haven’t taken care of ourselves? My guest today is here to help us develop a better mindset around all these issues. His name is Clint Evans, and he is the founder and creator of The Behavior Chef. Clint is a recovering binge-restrict eater and yo-yo dieter. Clint has found success in weight loss and Nutritional Behavior Change for himself (losing according to personal values over 90 pounds) and continues to do so with the unique understanding of Nutritional Coaching and the Psychological Science known as Applied Behavior Analysis. Clint has been in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis for the past 8 years. After becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, he noticed the field pushing into Health, Sports, and Fitness, but not much push was seen specifically for nutrition. This is where The Behavior Chef was born. Clint is currently certified by Precision Nutrition as a Level One Nutrition Coach. Clint and his co-host Tony host the Behavior Chef Podcast as well. In this conversation, we dive into all things nutrition and wellness for writers. Clint gives us a rundown of what applied behavior analysis is and why it’s helpful for writers, how to break out of negative health patterns with small steps, and how better eating and sleep can support your writing.

Be a Creator, Not a Critic

When it comes to the creative arts, there have always been two roles in society: those who are creators and those who are critics. The creators are the ones who make things, while critics offer intelligent reflection and commentary on culture. But make no mistake, the real action lies in creating something. The French novelist Gustave Flaubert said, “A man is a critic when he cannot be an artist, in the same way that a man becomes an informer when he cannot be a soldier.” On today’s episode, you’ll be inspired to be a creator, instead of a critic. *** Check out my NEW book: .

You Have to Make the Leap

Nothing else defines you quite like your family. It’s where you got your name, your personality, your sense of a place in this world, and so much more. Some writers came from a supportive environment, while others were not so lucky.

Be a Finisher

It’s scary to start a writing project. But you know what’s even scarier? Finishing it.

They need to be published. On today’s episode, Kent challenges you to be confident and finish what you started. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Your Only Competition

If you ever run a race, you’ll notice there are two kinds of runners: those who are competing against everyone else, and those who are competing against themselves. The ones who are competing against everyone else take running very seriously. They like to set records and get the glory of being known as a winner. The runners who are competing against themselves aren’t worried about anyone else’s time. They just want to run their own race and hopefully beat their previous record. On today’s episode, you’ll be reminded that the only person you need to compete against is yourself. *** Check out my NEW book: .

If You Want to Change the World

Most of us grow up believing that we can change the world.   Then, as we get older, some life experience and a bit of cynicism set in. Pretty soon we give up on the idea of changing much of anything… much less the world.  But imagine for a moment… what if you COULD actually change the world? How would you go about it?   On today’s episode, Kent reminds us that writers are uniquely positioned to change the world. *** Check out my NEW book: .

Historian Craig Fehrman on the U.S. Presidents as Authors

The office of the President of the United States gets a lot of attention for various reasons, but have you ever looked at our Presidents through the lens of the books they wrote? If you've never considered this, you're in for a treat today because my guest is Craig Fehrman, author of the excellent book The Wall Street Journal called it “one of the best books on the American presidency to appear in recent years.” Craig is a writer and historian who lives in Bloomington, Indiana, with his wife and kids. We had a blast in this conversation, and I got to ask Craig all my questions on this topic. He shares the background of the book, how he conducted research, the value of books in presidential campaigns, the two types of presidential books, the place of ghostwriters in presidential books, and his detailed process for getting endorsements for the book. If you love books, U.S. History, or learning about Presidents, you'll love this conversation.
