The Jay Kim Show Episode #33: Tucker Max
From prolific blogger to three-time New York Times bestseller and now disrupter of the publishing industry, Tucker Max has had a long and storied path to entrepreneurship.
Tucker first gained notoriety by inventing an entirely new literary genre: fratire. Since starting his fratire blog in the early 2000s, Tucker has written over six books and is only one of three authors to have three books on the New York Times bestseller list at the same time.
After establishing himself as a successful author, Tucker accidently stumbled upon a winning business idea: Book In A Box, a book-writing and publishing service that’s on track to disrupt the publishing industry as we know it.
In today’s episode Jay talks about his experience using Book In A Box to write his own book, Hack Your Fitness, so tune in to learn:
- How to turn an idea into a book in less than a year
- Why being an author today is not about how many books you sell
- How authoring a book can open up a world of opportunities for entrepreneurs
