Podcast Guest Interview - Derek Doepker

This time of year always brings so many things to a close, school, clubs, social groups the goals that you set to complete this year. Because this is the case I know that some people are inclined to consider their goals for next year. I know that I am not quite ready yet, I need to survive the Christmas festivities with the family first. Also I have a wedding to attend this weekend! But I was inspired by what Derek had to say and I know that after Christmas I will be prepared to take a mindful moment to set POWERful goals.

Episode 13 of the Podcast was jam packed with engaging advice and information from Derek Doepker. I asked for the interview with Derek after already learning about his unique goal setting method knowing the fantastic value it would provide listeners and people who are on my list.

Derek Doepker is a former aspiring rockstar turned seven-time #1 bestselling author. He discovered proven processes that took him from struggling author to selling over 50,000 books. Now he shares those processes with thousands of authors through workshops, courses, and retreats empowering them to turn their passion for writing into a thriving business.
