It is finally here! The paperback version of my book Your Big Break: Guide to Leaving Your Job to Travel the World and Back is here.
Last week, when the printer told me the books would be ready on Friday, I was very happy because it’s a Friday the 13!
Thank you everyone who has bought my book. Everyone who has supported me on the journey. Everyone who has helped me make the book a lot better than it was. Thank you thank you!
One lesson I learned in self-publishing
Producing this book has made realized that there are times I need to ask others for help.
In the past, I’ve been fiercely independent (or stubborn), doing everything on my own and thinking that I don’t need to bother others.
Turns out, I did need others’ help. I needed help with
- ideas on what to include in the chapters
- finding a printer
- ISBN (Yes, you can get a free Singapore ISBN.)
- marketing (I need to follow up with JJ on this.)
- getting the awesome cover
- [update] MORAL SUPPORT. Buckets of moral support.
Many lessons learned in just one project. :D
Have a great weekend and be on the lookout for my next video this Sunday! It’s book-related too.
