This past April, I published my first book – Eureka Results: How Entrepreneurs Can Turn Their Best Ideas into Reality.
It was one of my biggest projects for over ten months, but sometimes it’s hard for me to believe that it actually happened.
Some of our biggest life moments are like that a little bit, aren’t they? They take on a bit of an unreal quality.
As we wrap up the year, I wanted to update you on how the book launch has gone and how you can jump on board if you haven’t read it yet!
The Book Launch
I partnered with a hybrid publisher to publish Eureka Results, which meant I had professional support for every stage of the process but also retained 100% of the rights to my book. If you’re considering writing a book, I highly recommend this method! Feel free to reach out anytime if you’re curious to learn more or are looking for a referral.
Copies sold…believe it or not, I don’t really know. It’s a lot harder to track than I expected! Bringing all the pieces together, I would guess about 400. I just heard about the first copy of my book being sold in Nigeria, too, which I think is pretty awesome.
Also, people were nice enough to share pictures of them reading my book in awesome places…
Speaking engagements…I’ve had over 15 since the launch, many of them directly attributable to the book. This has been one of the most exciting pieces of the puzzle for me!
Other versions…I’ve recorded an audiobook, which is about to go live soon! Stay tuned for all the details about that.
Spinoffs… this fall, I hosted an eight-week Eureka Results workshop. I worked with seven entrepreneurs as they each made one of their biggest ideas reality, and it was a really great experience.
Positive reviews on Amazon….13.
Negative reviews on Amazon….1.
Overall experience…I’d give it an 8 out of 10! It was hard work, terrifying, and deeply fulfilling. I may do it again….in five years.
The Book Today
One of the big perks about books is that they can still be a great read for years after they come out! Sooo if you haven’t read it yet, you’re not too late.
Eureka Results is a practical field guide for any entrepreneur who has big ideas they want to bring across the finish line. It’s perfect for you if you struggle with shiny object syndrome, have a million ideas a day, or cringe a little bit when you hear people talk about systems.
You can get your copy right here.
Also, fun fact – you can get downloadable exercises to accompany the book for free anytime at the Eureka Results website! It’s the perfect way to apply the principles in the book to your own life.
I’ll keep exploring more ways to spread the word about the book next year – it’s one of those projects with many layers – but in the meantime, I’m deeply grateful for every one of you who has supported me during this journey. I would have dropped out due to discouragement a long time ago without you.
