What I’ve Learned From Selling One Million Books (feat. Noah Kagan)

If you want to know some of the key lessons I’ve learned in selling a million books over the last five years, then you want to listen to this show.

In this episode, I have a meandering conversation with my friend Noah Kagan about various things related to book marketing, productivity, and fitness.

In case you don’t know Noah, he was the 30th employee at Facebook, the Director of Marketing for Mint, the founder of and, and an all-around neat dude with interesting ideas about a lot of things.

In this episode, Noah and I talk book creation and marketing and how I plan to go from where I am–about 1 million books sold–to 5+ million sold in the next few years, as well as various strategies for getting in shape and staying productive, including intermittent fasting, how to stay excited about working out, and how to organize your environment to make it easier to stay in shape, and more.
