Simply put, this is an amazing interview with a guy who is wise beyond his years! Jeff Goins is a prolific writer, blogger and author with an inspiring story and attitude to match.

In a little more than two years, Jeff went from being an unknown with no fan base to being a highly regarded writer who was able to quit his day job earlier this year.

Here's just some of what Jeff talks about in this interview:

  • The importance of claiming your identity as a writer (or musician, artist or entrepreneur)
  • Why you don't have to have it ALL together to eventually "turn pro"
  • How Jeff built an audience and a platform around "helping people"
  • Why he initially published 300 blog posts and 100 guest posts in one year and gave away his best work for free
  • The surprising story of how Jeff was actually MORE productive when he had a day job
