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.
