How To

Each week I collect more and more followers on . So I thought it would be a good idea to reach out to all those folks to promote my new book. Trouble is, I don't know the best way to do that.

A friend recommended a LinkedIn consultant. I reached out to them with a simple request:

Thanks to regularly uploading my blog posts onto LinkedIn, I now have close to a quarter of a million followers.

My new book – Is That All There Is? – was just released and I would like your help generating referrals and with that audience.

Is this something you can do? Would you find this assignment exciting and interesting? If so, please reach out to me at your earliest convenience. 

Thank you.

Here's a portion of what I got back (I removed the names to protect the clueless):

“Dear Prospect,

How To Get What You Want

Really? I have to review their “introductory message and attached services” and visit their new website before I can spend money with them?

I made it clear exactly what I want. Now it's MY responsibility to “review the services attached for options available” to discover how they may best assist me?

Here's a clue: they could best assist me by my request and then showing me how they could help me get what I want.

The irony is that figuring out how to help people get what they want has been what I've been researching for the last two years.

My new book is titled Is That All There Is? It's about people our age who reach a level of success in their lives and then decide they want something different. To write the book I interviewed over 45 people who have successfully pivoted their own lives and then featured detailed stories of 14 of them.  Is? explains why these people were dissatisfied with their lives, (HINT: It's almost always one of the Nine Ds). What they decided to do about it (HINT: You can't GET what you want until you KNOW what you want). What worked (HINT: You'd probably be surprised how many different paths there are). What didn't work (HINT: You'd probably be surprised how consistent the no-nos are). And what proven and actionable they recommend.
