We are so excited to speak with bestselling author Emily Henry (Beach Read, People We Meet on Vacation) about all things character—how to make a character intense yet likable, how to make dialogue snappy yet believable—and how to make the most of an enemies-to-lovers dynamic. We also discuss over-editing, the (false!) idea that there's a magic formula for getting published, and how Emily got her first agent the traditional "Google and cold query" way. We also discuss what makes female (versus male characters) "likable"--and when we care to cater to those expectations. We had so much fun having this discussion. Hope you love listening as much as we enjoyed talking with her. * Emily Henry is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of People We Meet on Vacation and Beach Read, as well as several young adult novels. She lives and writes in Cincinnati and the part of Kentucky just beneath it. Her books have been featured in Buzzfeed, Oprah Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, The Skimm, Shondaland, and more. Find her on Instagram @EmilyHenryWrites.

Welcome back to Mission First People Always! Today's guests are two guys who are doing it RIGHT! They are entrepreneurs who are taking an old, stale, stuffy industry and turning it onto its head by creating a people-centered culture for their clients and for their employees. How old, stale, and stuffy is their industry you ask? Well, the origins of the title insurance industry date back to 1876 which makes it 146-years old to be exact. And as a point of reference, Ulysses S. Grant was president of the United States and buggy whips were still a thriving business. Their industry arose because there was an 1868 Pennsylvania Supreme Court Case that brought to light the fact that people could, in good faith and with reasonable due diligence, sell or buy a property and later find out that there was a lien on the property or some other problem that could lead to financial loss for one or more of the parties involved. With limited resources and no insurance backing, the risk of losing a property due to unresolved issues was significant. Necessity being the “mother of invention,” led a group of sellers in Philadelphia to write the first title insurance policy in 1876 to protect the purchasers of real estate and mortgages against defective titles, liens, and encumbrances. Of course, things have changed over the last 100-plus years but think about it. If you've purchased a home, were you ever excited about your title insurance or who was holding your money in escrow. Did you even care? Could you identify any of the companies by name? Most likely, you just wanted the transaction to close as quickly as possible and with as little hassle as possible, so you could get on with moving into your new home. You gave little thought to who was handling the title and escrow process. But today's guests saw an opportunity within this unexciting industry–an opportunity to do it differently, to do it better, and to make it a different kind of experience for every stakeholder involved in the process. My guests today are Latane Meade and Matt Paulson, both principals in Allied Title and Escrow, headquartered in the Washington, DC area. They've already been featured by a wide array of media outlets like ABC, Fox, CNN, Buzzfeed, and The Washington Post and they are becoming rock stars in their industry. Hit play to learn exactly how Matt and Latane are breathing new life into their industry. You may even get some ideas of your own, I know I did! If you'd like to learn more or want to get in touch with us, check out the links below! In this episode you will learn: That Latane and Matt see themselves as being in the people business, not the Title and Escrow business, and how this mindset focuses them more on relationships than on transactions. How these two entrepreneurs created a culture with people and relationships as their focus. How a willingness to admit that you're not perfect opens doors to stronger relationships and more committed employees. What is a "givers gain" philosophy The value of turning a transaction into a relationship. And Much More!

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K362: The Era of the Foreign Correspondent Is Over It will be named for a word that is the same in dozens of languages. It will recruit English-speaking journalists from countries like India and Singapore to cover the news. And according to its cofounder, “The era of the foreign correspondent is over.” 它將會是在幾十種語言中相同的單詞。它將從印度和新加坡等國招募講英語的記者來報導 新聞。根據其聯合創始人的說法， 外國記者的時代已經結束。“ These are among the ideas in store for the new media venture led by Justin Smith, the former chief executive of Bloomberg Media, and Ben Smith, the former editor of BuzzFeed and media columnist for The New York Times, according to remarks by Justin Smith during an online seminar. 根據賈斯汀·史密斯（Justin Smith）在一次在線研討會上的言論，這些都是由彭博媒體（Bloomberg Media）前首席執行官賈斯汀·史密斯（Justin Smith）和BuzzFeed前主編、《紐約時報》媒體專欄作家本·史密斯（Ben Smith）領導的新媒體企業的想法之一。 The Smiths, who are not related, have been tight-lipped about plans for their new company, which has captured the fascination of the media industry because of its high-profile founders and their ambitious pledge to compete with international outlets like Reuters, The Associated Press and The Times. 史密斯夫婦沒有血緣關係，他們對新公司的計劃守口如瓶，該公司因其備受矚目的創始人以及他們雄心勃勃的承諾與路透社，美聯社和泰晤士報等國際媒體競爭而吸引了媒體行業的魅力。 The Smiths are seeking tens of millions of dollars in funding from prominent investors. They announced the hiring of Gina Chua, a top editor at Reuters who will serve as executive editor. 史密斯夫婦正在尋求知名投資者的數千萬美元資金 。他們宣佈聘請路透社的頂級編輯Gina Chua， 她將擔任執行編輯。 Justin Smith offered some new details during an hourlong Zoom interview sponsored by the Harvard Business School Club of New York. 賈斯汀·史密斯（Justin Smith）在紐約哈佛商學院俱樂部（Harvard Business School Club of New York）贊助的長達一小時的Zoom採訪中提供了一些新的細節。 “We've chosen a brand that we're going to be unveiling in a couple of months that is the same word in 25 or 35 different languages,” Smith told the moderator. “It is very intentionally going to be able to live in Asia or Europe or the Middle East or America.” “我們選擇了一個我們將在幾個月內推出的品牌，這是25或35種不同語言的同一個詞，”史密斯告訴主持人。 “這是非常有意的，能夠生活在亞洲、歐洲、中東或美洲。“ Smith did not reveal the name that he had selected. English words that are the same or similar in many other languages include taxi, tea, coffee, chai, sugar, pajama, radio and soup. 史密斯沒有透露他選擇的名字。 在許多其他語言中相同或相似的英語單詞包括計程車，茶，咖啡，柴， 糖，睡衣，收音機和湯。 Smith also shared his thoughts about what he called the end of an era where news outlets based in London, New York or Washington dispatched journalists to foreign countries to report on the goings-on there. He asked why foreign readers would not prefer a homegrown English-speaking native to report the news in their region. 史密斯還分享了他對自己所謂的時代結束的看法，在這個時代 ，倫敦、紐約或華盛頓的新聞媒體派遣記者 到國外報導那裡發生的事情。他問為什麼外國 讀者不喜歡一個土生土長的講英語的人來報導 他們所在地區的新聞。 “The idea that you send some well-educated young graduate from the Ivy League to Mumbai to tell us about what's going on in Mumbai in 2022 is sort of insane,” Smith said. “你派一些受過良好教育的年輕畢業生從常春藤盟校到孟買告訴我們2022年孟買發生的事情，其實有點瘋狂，”史密斯說。 Instead, he said he would pursue “very educated, English-language-educated journalists all around the world,” describing an opportunity “for scaling local and regional newsrooms at a lower cost.” 相反的，他說他將在世界各地追求「受過良好教育，受過英語教育的記者」，並描述了一個“以較低的成本擴大本地和區域新聞編輯室的機會。” Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/6210011
In this episode, Kimberly and Day discuss rituals and reflections for life-altering experiences. Our culture does not hold much space for processing how threshold events change us such as birth, postpartum, death, and all forms of comings and goings in our lives.

Together, they discuss how to create rituals for all kinds of life moments, especially those which impact us deeply. Bio Day Schildkret is an internationally known artist, teacher, and author. His two books “Morning Altars: A 7-Step Practice to Nourish Your Spirit Through Nature, Art, and Ritual” and “Hello.

We're all in a process of reimagining when it comes to work, looking at the changes we've made over the last few years, and trying to figure out what we'll keep, what we'll let go of, and how else we might want to change the way we work in order to feel the way we want to feel. And, what so many are realizing is that we've got more power to reimagine every aspect of work now than we've ever had before. Question is, what do we do with that power? And what do we do with this moment of openness to new ways of working and living?These questions are what we dive into with today's guest, Anne Helen Peterson. Anne is a journalist whose wise, often irreverent, funny, and provocative writing appeared in Buzzfeed, the New York Times and more, before leaving the mainstream to become the voice behind the wildly-popular newsletter, Culture Study. She's also the author of four books, most recently Out of the Office: The Big Problem and Bigger Promise of Working From Home (co-written with Charlie Warzel) and Can't Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation.During our conversation, we talk about everything from where we live and work to the traditional role of the 9-5 work week and how, as we look at what's important to us, companies, businesses and the promise of what remote work can bring, there's an opportunity to change the way we think about work which ultimately then opens the door to shifting old-schoolwork schedules and models across many industries. One of my favorite moments of this conversation is at minute 35:03 when Anne makes a really compelling case for the 4-day work week, showing how she's witnessed its success even in, as she calls them, “fuddy-duddy industries.” We also talk about Ann's power move from mainstream media journalist and big city living to going out on her own as a writer, starting her own subscription newsletter, moving to a remote island, and loving it all. If you're ready to think about working differently, this episode will be a beacon for you.

Yo! Happy Friday!! Did anyone else see this talk on Twitter about the monster drawing? This dad claims his kid drew a picture of a monster in class and the teacher ripped it up and threw it away. Dad ain't happy. We've got questions. Snowcone is now tasked with finding this guy and getting him on the show. *Buzzfeed apologized for their Kim K coverage concerning her recent weight loss. They want to make sure everyone knows the risks associated with rapid weight loss and they don't want anyone to try and lose weight when their clothes don't fit. It sounds like they just want us to buy bigger pants. *A high school teacher sent sexually explicit photos and possibly even video of himself to young teenagers at his school. He did not get fired. He did not get in trouble. The kids are in trouble and they freaking should be. *Doomscrolling!! Amber Heard describes the two sides of Johnny Depp. The FDA says absolutely no more J&J unless you just really want it. A Virgin Atlantic flight had to turn around once someone realized that one of the pilots wasn't quite a pilot yet. Two college students have been charged with felonies after harassing...a food delivery robot. *It's been a long time but NICK WRIGHT IS ON THE PROGRAM!! Why was Nick sharing pictures of his wife giving him a lapdance? Are nick and Lil Wayne best friends now? We also manage to talk a little sports for a moment. *It's Friday which means we like to head over to our subreddit r/churchoflazlo and check out the Story Requests. Today, Lazlo will be telling us the story of the leaf pile and the street sweeper that never came. *Thanks for listening!

In this episode of ABL Live, we covered a variety of topics including the Biden administration creating the "ministry of truth" also known as the "Disinformation Governance Board" to control the flow of information online, Terry Crews apologizing for his comments about Black Lives Matter that he made on Twitter nearly two years ago, Sage Steele sues her employer ESPN over discrimination and violating her freedom of speech, Buzzfeed publishing an article about 21 unwritten rules for black people, college bro attempting to label Ben Shapiro as "woke" at Iowa State University, and much more!
Some leftist haters are going after Dennis Prager over some comments he made on hate crime hoaxes, saying “conservatives blame marginalized groups for their own oppression…accusing them of faking hate crimes.” We'll get to the bottom of this and look at Buzzfeed's new collection of “unwritten rules” black people follow that white people don't know about.

The Ghost That Ate Us questions if you remember the brutal crime of on small town... Maybe you read about it on Twitter. Maybe a friend sent you a news clip. Maybe you saw it on an episode of Spectral Journeys that night you were flipping through channels, unable to sleep. Maybe after reading the true story, you won't ever sleep again. On June 1, 2017, six people were killed at a Burger City franchise off I-80 near Jonny, Iowa. It was the bizarre and gruesome conclusion to nine months of alleged paranormal activity at the fast-food joint—events popularly known as “the Burger City Poltergeist.” The story inspired Facebook memes, Twitter hashtags, Buzzfeed listicles, Saturday Night Live sketches, and more. But the case was never much more than a punchline…until bestselling writer Daniel Kraus (The Shape of Water, The Living Dead) decided to head to Iowa to dig up what really happened. Presented here is the definitive story of “the most exhaustively documented haunting in history,” including—for the first time ever—interviews with every living survivor of the tragedy. The employees of Burger City were a family. They loved one another. At least, at the beginning. But love can make you do unspeakable things. Turns out that The Ghost That Ate Us is a fictional story written by Daniel Kraus, it just took Dan some time to catch up on that in this interview. Dan and Dan get into the details about building a fast food franchise from scratch. Daniel talks about things that have been inspiring him. The book is out on July 12th from Raw Dog Screaming Press. Pre-order the book here to learn all about the poltergeist that changed one small town forever. You can find Daniel on his website here. The cover design of The Ghost That Ate Us was done by Tim Daniel of Second Rocket Comics. (Tim also designed our logo as well!)

In Trust Me, I'm Lying, Ryan Holiday reveals the media manipulation tactics he used as Marketing Director of American Apparel, and for his PR clients. Meanwhile, he exposes the inner workings of a modern media machine in which incentives make it impossible for the version of reality depicted in the media to come close to resembling the truth. I think it's Holiday's best book, and one of the best media studies books. So, here, in my own words, is my Trust Me, I'm Lying summary. Yes, this book is about lying Before Ryan Holiday became known as an author of modern stoicism books, he dropped out of college at nineteen to apprentice under 48 Laws of Power author, Robert Green. He later was the marketing director for American Apparel, and now has a PR agency, Brass Check, where he advises corporate clients and authors. As the title of the book suggests, the tactics Holiday confesses to might make your skin crawl. They involve deliberate provocation, bribery, impersonation, and – since it's called Trust Me, I'm Lying – making stuff up. But everyone should read it This may turn people off to the book, but if you're an author, marketer, entrepreneur, musician, filmmaker, or comedian, you're in the business of trying to get your message into the world. So, ignore this book at your own peril. The people with whom you compete for attention are using these tactics. Understanding these tactics is a good way to understand the mechanics of media. You can use this knowledge to get your message out in less nefarious ways (more on that later). And, if you're someone who thinks it's your duty to read the news, to “stay informed,” you owe it to yourself to read this book. But be prepared to have that belief challenged, and your conception of reality altered. Media is a “racket” Holiday describes the modern media system as a “racket,” the word which Major General Smedley D. Butler once used to describe war. He defined it as something “where only a small group of insiders know what's really going on and they operate for the benefit of a few and at the expense of basically everyone else.” Journalists are poor, busy, and desperate for a story The main insider in the modern media system is the journalist, more generally, a “blogger,” who might be someone writing articles for a small blog, or even a major media outlet such as the Huffington Post. Holiday uses “blogger” and “journalist,” interchangeably, and I will, too. Journalists are poor To help you understand the motivations of many of these journalists, Holiday points out this: They might have gone to an expensive grad school, and now live in a big, expensive city, such as NYC, San Francisco, or Washington D.C. They've been close enough to taste a $200,000-a-year journalism job. But now they're churning out articles at a breakneck pace, without even getting health insurance. Meanwhile, the people they cover are rich and successful, and may include talentless reality TV stars. New York magazine called the result “the rage of the creative underclass.” Journalists are busy These bloggers have to write a face-melting amount of content. When journalist Bekah Grant left VentureBeat, she wrote a post saying she averaged five posts a day – more than 1,700 articles in twenty months. Henry Blodget, founder of Business Insider, said his bloggers need to generate three times their salary, benefits, and overhead costs to be worth hiring. So, an employee making sixty-thousand dollars a year needs to produce 1.8 million page views a month, every month. (1.8 million page views is a lot. At my current traffic, it takes me about a decade to generate that much on my blog, and I make more than sixty-thousand dollars a year.) Journalists are desperate for a story Most sites that journalists write for make their money from ads, and the way to make money from ads is to generate page views. As such, many journalists are paid by the page view. I've personally heard this from a friend who worked for a newspaper with a good reputation, covering news for a major city. So, journalists are desperate for a story that will generate page views. So, if you give them a juicy story that will generate page views, they will generally publish it. They're too busy to fact check it, and since they're compensated by the page view, they aren't motivated to care whether or not it's true. Readers want to be entertained, and don't care what's true So you've got poor, busy, and desperate journalists paid by the page view, and the people they're writing for want to be entertained. Negativity attracts attention In 2010, Jonah Berger analyzed 7,000 articles from the New York Times' most-emailed list. He found that the best predictor of virality was: how much anger does the article evoke? Increasing the anger rating of an article had two-and-a-half times the impact of increasing its positivity rating. The human mind is irresistibly attracted to negativity. When subjects of a study were shown footage of war, airplane crashes, and natural disasters, they paid more attention and remembered more than non-negative footage. Corrections don't work Negativity attracts page views, so journalists want juicy stories, and don't care if they're true – and neither do readers, it seems. One study found that when people were shown a fake article with a correction at the bottom, they were more likely to believe it than those who saw an article without a correction. (Note from me: this finding hasn't been consistent across other studies. (Is that a correction you believe?) In any case, people's beliefs are still resistant to contrary facts.) Despite this, online news outlets are financially motivated to publish stories, whether they're true or not. A Gawker reporter once said, “Gawker believes that publicly airing rumors out is usually the quickest way to get to the truth,” going on to say, “Let's acknowledge that we can't vouch for the veracity or truth of the rumors we'll be sharing here.” Journalists are motivated to publish false stories, and, as Holiday points out, “While the internet allows content to be written iteratively, the audience does not read or consume it iteratively.” In other words, they see the story, not the correction. Media manipulation strategy: Trading up the chain Holiday shares nine media manipulation tactics in the book, but they all essentially serve the strategy that Holiday calls, “trading up the chain.” And trading up the chain is something you can do, even without lying. The chain Here's how it works: Get coverage on smaller outlets. Those stories then get covered on mid-level outlets. Finally, major outlets pick up stories from the mid-level outlets. Smaller outlets can be individual blogs, social media, or local websites that cover a neighborhood or scene. Mid-level outlets are blogs of newspapers or local television stations. They can also be “sister sites” of bigger outlets, so they might be affiliated with Newsweek, or CBS. Major outlets are the big ones, like the New York Times, CNN, or The Today Show. It's easy to get coverage on the small outlets It's easy to get coverage on smaller outlets, Holiday says. If there's a bigger outlet on which you want coverage, review stories for patterns. What are the stories about? Is there a smaller outlet where stories consistently show up before stories on the bigger outlet? The smaller the outlet, the less they fact-check Holiday says the smaller an outlet is, the less they fact check. This is where the lying comes in. Holiday confesses to creating fake email accounts to send tips to bloggers, leaking fake internal memos, and having his assistant pose as him over email and even over the phone. You don't even have to start with the small outlets. Holiday says he successfully “conned” reporters from Reuter's, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, The Today Show, and the New York Times. Using HARO, or “Help a Reporter Out” – which is an email list reporters use to find story sources – he found journalists who were looking for experts on various subjects. Holiday isn't an expert on, say, vinyl record collecting, but these reporters were presumably on deadlines, and so not inclined to fact check. Holiday says he did it as a stunt to prove how ridiculous he thinks HARO is, and points out that even after he publicly embarrassed these outlets, they continue to use the service. Subprime truth One of my favorite observations from the book is that the fuzziness of truth in the media is like the subprime mortgage crisis. During the subprime mortgage crisis, banks sold loans to other banks, who sold those to other banks. These loans were rated by ratings agencies that were overwhelmed, and driven by conflicts of interest. One example of false information in the media Holiday seized upon was when a journalist misinterpreted the Wikipedia page of Holiday's client, Tucker Max. Holiday had written Max's page to show that his book had been on the New York Times best-seller list for some period of time in each of three consecutive years. The journalist apparently read that, then wrote a story saying Max's book had been on the best-seller list for three years. That was wrong, but Holiday ran with it, updating the Wikipedia page to say Max's book had, indeed, been on the list for three years, citing the incorrect article as proof. (The Wikipedia page has since been corrected.) Like the subprime mortgage crisis, in the news media, overwhelmed and conflicted reporters write stories, which are then picked up by other overwhelmed and conflicted reporters. In Balaji Srinivasan's second appearance on the Tim Ferriss show, which I summarized on episode 274, he describes how a different kind of chain could ensure verifiable truth gets traded up the chain – in this case, a blockchain. Pseudo-events By getting a story into one outlet, then “trading up the chain” to get it covered in another, you're creating a “pseudo-event.” If you remember my summary of The Image on episode 257, author Daniel J. Boorstin describes pseudo-events as fake events that are deliberately placed in the news, so that they become real. Holiday created a lot of pseudo-events for Max when his movie based upon his book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, was debuting. He bought ads in newspapers around the country, then sent anonymous complaints to the newspapers, leaking those complaints to blogs, to get coverage. He notified college LGBT and women's rights groups of screenings, so they would protest at theaters and the nightly news would cover it. He bought a billboard, defaced it, and reported it to journalists to get news coverage. It seems almost certain that the Russian Internet Research Agency read Holiday's book. They spent many years – and probably still are – hacking public opinion in the U.S. and in other countries, creating Facebook pages for various causes, “astroturfing” those pages with activity from fake profiles, then using that influence make real-life events happen. For example, in 2016 they organized opposing protests – one through the Facebook group, “Heart of Texas,” the other for “United Muslims of America” – at the same time, on the same day, across the street from each other. Trading sensationalism up the chain for free advertising Holiday says his “leveraged advertising strategy” of running sensational ads for American Apparel just to get news coverage was responsible for 50% growth in online sales in three years with “a miniscule ad budget.” He says he deliberately designed ads that would inspire outrage: dressing up kids like adults, putting clothes on dogs, or writing ad copy that didn't make sense. When he couldn't use some promotional Halloween costume photos, because of copyright concerns, he had one of his employees leak them to Gawker and Jezebel, where they were covered in an article that got ninety-thousand views. He ran ads on small websites, featuring porn actress Sasha Grey, completely nude. The ads were covered by Nerve, Buzzfeed, Fast Company, Jezebel, and more. All this coverage for just $1,200 in ads (though it's not clear how much he paid Grey). He says, “my strategy has always been: If I want to be written about, I do things they have to write about.” This is how, according to Holiday, Donald Trump got $4.6 billion of free publicity during his presidential campaign. Pseudo-events for reputational damage control Because of the way the media works, Holiday says if a client of his is in trouble, the best strategy is to create what's essentially a pseudo-event. A major newspaper wrote a hit piece on a client of Holiday's. The journalist who wrote the hit piece was also running a hate blog about the client's company on the side. The client complained to the journalist's editor, but they didn't seem to care. So, Holiday advised his client to write an internal memo to his company, then forward that memo to a competing outlet, which published an article with the memo. The memo was apparently quite damning, because the original newspaper had no choice but to respond. Because bloggers aren't incentivized to care about the truth, and readers are attracted to drama, Holiday says there's no point in trying to correct something that's been said about you in the media. If you want to try, he says, “be prepared to have to be an obsequious douche. You've got to flatter bloggers into thinking that somehow the mistake wasn't their fault.” Ways of using these tactics that are less...gross I personally can't judge Holiday for using these tactics. The medium is the message; as one of Holiday's chapters proclaims, “everyone else is doing it”; and there's no denying that Holiday is good at getting coverage for himself and his clients. But, I'm probably not the only one uncomfortable with impersonating others and lying to get coverage. You can still learn a lot from Trust Me, I'm Lying. Trade up the chain Trading up the chain is a completely legitimate tactic. If you want coverage somewhere, pay attention to where they get their story ideas, and what stories they like to cover. This applies to influencers, too. I no longer interview people on this podcast, but I get so many pitches that are totally irrelevant. You have a better chance of, say, getting interviewed on a podcast, if you tailor your pitch to the target show. And if you get coverage from a micro-influencer that influences a bigger influencer, you might move up the chain. Be remarkable While anger gets a lot of attention, you don't have to be negative in your marketing. You can instead be remarkable – what Seth Godin calls a Purple Cow. I love the ridiculous book titles of author Chuck Tingle. Are you ready for this? How could you not laugh when you hear the title, Domald Tromp Pounded in the Butt By the Handsome Russian T-Rex Who Also Peed On His Butt And Then Blackmailed Him With the Videos Of His Butt Getting Peed On. Even if you don't buy one of his books, his titles are attention-grabbing and spread. Bread Face Blog makes a living smashing bread with her face. It's so absurd, it has to attract attention. The Instagram algorithm sees that attention, and gets her videos in front of more people. The New York Times had to write about her – how could they not? Create a message for the medium If the medium is the message, create a message for the medium. Whatever you're creating, think about how it spreads through media, whether that's social media, traditional media, or word-of-mouth. Lately, I've been seeing how people on Instagram share highlights of quotes in books. It makes sense to have larger pull quotes in my next book, so they have something pretty to take a picture of. Have you been to a restaurant or event where there's a decorated nook specifically for taking photos and sharing them on social media? Not an accident. While researching Times Square ad space for my own publicity stunt I'm working on, I saw one fact sheet point out that Times Square was “the third-most Instagrammed location in the world.” Point being if you put up an ad there, lots of people bragging to their friends about their trips to New York will spread your ad for you. When I write a title of a book, I ask myself if it passes the “cocktail party test.” How would it feel to tell someone at a cocktail party you're reading a book by this title? Proud and strong? Good. Embarrassed or weak? Bad. Mind Management, Not Time Management is what I call a “turnkey title.” The title alone makes a statement you can use, without reading the book. It helps make it memorable, so it spreads. Create pseudo-events Today's media is increasingly participatory. People are not just consumers of media, but also makers of media. By creating pseudo-events, you can get more out of the media you create. I recently saw a cool video on TikTok, showing the process of making a video that showed the process of making a pizza. I know, meta, right? It's a pseudo-event. The video of them making pizza was made for the media. The video of them making the video making pizza made me think they're really good cinematographers. Of course, they teased the original video at the end of the cinematography video, and I had to go watch it. Many readers of the books I write also write books. So, my KDP income reports are essentially pseudo-events. One reason they exist is, I have a business writing books for people who write books, and they show that I know how to run a business writing books. They attract the attention of people who will like my books. Be careful Trust Me, I'm Lying is a must-read for anyone doing anything with media. But be careful what you do with these tactics. I know I've heard Tucker Max lament the reputation he's gained as a result of the tactics in the book. I've also heard Max say the same for Holiday – that maybe it wasn't such a good idea to write a book that says he's a liar right in the title. As Holiday warns, “if you chase the kind of attention I chased, and use the tactics I've used, there will be blowback.” There's your Trust Me, I'm Lying book summary Not all of the book is tactics. Much of it is more media commentary, with some media history sprinkled in, and some airing of grievances Holiday has with various journalists and media outlets. Despite the damage Holiday may have done to his reputation by writing Trust Me, I'm Lying, I really appreciate the book, and it took guts to confess to the things he did in the book. It's on my list of best media books. About Your Host, David Kadavy David Kadavy is author of Mind Management, Not Time Management, The Heart to Start and Design for Hackers.
