Narrow your Focus

Author Kevin Tumlinson (@KevinTumlinson) is the guest in this episode of The Author Biz.

As authors, we are the CEOs of our own Author Businesses. One of the most discussed challenges we face in running those businesses, myself certainly included, is finding the time. The time to write, the time to market our work, the time to deal with content creation, time to think, to plan, to address the problem of managing all of our stuff, and carving out quality time to spend with loved ones.
