How To Pursue Your Dream & Make a Living As An Artist with Derek Hough

Text "GREATNESS" to Lewis at 614-350-3960


Some really cool things have come from  The School of Greatness.

And I’m not just talking about the book. 🙂

I’ve met incredible people, learned life-changing lessons, and connected with all of you amazing listeners.

I’ve heard your stories of how the guests on the show have changed your life, inspired you to launch your dream business, and regain your health.

I’ve been amazed at how much the reach of the podcast has grown, across the world, and how loyal the listeners are.

But I couldn’t have guessed that from a single episode, someone would launch a company and make $1 million in sales in the first year.

Who did that?

None other than brilliant entrepreneur and NYT best-selling author Tucker Max.

If you’ve been digging through the old episodes of the show, you may remember him from Episode 78 talking about how to market a bestseller.

During that episode, he mentioned a business idea he’d been toying around with for people who wanted to write a book on their expertise, but didn’t have the time or skills.

It turns out, there was big demand for that business. And because of Tucker mentioning it on the show, a company was born.

Tucker is back to tell the whole story, where his company is now, and what is possible if you want to write a book in Episode 227.
