Today we’re sharing the fears, insecurities, and self-doubt we have when putting our words and ideas out into the world. We’re guessing you may have these as well as you work to create new projects, write that book, or start a company. You may hear those voices telling you – “It’s not good enough.” “No one is going to by this.” “Why are you wasting your time?”
In this episode we’re here to let you know You Are Not Alone. These anxieties are more common than you think and exist in authors, entrepreneurs, and anyone looking to share new concepts with the world. The big surprise, it does not matter how often you do it, the voices just don’t shut up.
Our guest, Tim Grahl, is the founder of Out:think, a firm that works with authors to build their platform and sell more books, and is the author of Your First 1000 Copies: The Step-by-Step Guide to Marketing Your Book. He works with many of the top authors in the world, including Daniel Pink, Barbara Corcoran, and recent podcast guest Pam Slim, and has helped to launch multiple New York Times and Wall Street Journal best selling books.

Tim shares his recent experience as he shifted from talking about other people’s work and going out and writing his own. Tim documents his insecurities and worries in this fascinating journal he kept the last month before launch. It is a rare look behind the scenes at the thoughts many of us have but don’t share.

On this week's show we're talking all about freedom and how to create more of it to do the things you want most in your life. . The first step is to identify what you want freedom from, and for many of us it is the stuff filling every space in our homes.
Decluttering is more than simply going through a series of steps, we must first deal with that feeling of just not knowing where to start. The emotions of parting with items that mean something to you, as well as the logistics of how to sell and dispose of all that stuff. We tackle it all in the conversation and are excited as well to be offering a solution.
This week we are pleased to launch a new offering, Declutter Clinic, specifically designed to help you create the freedom you desire. This 4 week course provides a step-by-step plan to jumping in and decluttering your home and life. We're also sharing how we reached the point where we HAD to declutter as well as introduce you to others who have made big changes in their lives after removing the clutter.
