Success by accident.
Six years ago I called up my accountant and ask him if there was I way I could write off a trip to Las Vegas. He said only if I was going to a conference pertaining to my business or if I was doing research for a book that had a reasonable chance of generating revenue.
Well with 8 trips to Vegas under my belt and a few hundred pages I e-published a book, no marketing, no promotion. Just trying to fulfill my obligation under CRA rules.
I published it on November 4th, very few sales at first. For some unknown reason, the book Sales are going through the roof right now. It’s not even edited with lots of errors that would make a crazed grammar Nazi consider suicide.
At any rate, HBO called me up, I am now writing a pilot for new series. All because I was trying to write off a trip.
