If You Missed “A Day About Books” with John Maxwell and Me

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of speaking at John Maxwell’s first-ever publishing conference, “A Day About Books.” We had almost 800 people in attendance. Numerous people told me it was the best writing conference they had ever attended. If you weren’t able to join us, I have some great news. (More about that in a minute.)

Michael Hyatt, John Maxwell, and Charlie Wetzel

Here’s what we covered:

  • John Maxwell spoke on how to get a big idea for your next book. He then shared his own writing journey and the exact process that has enabled him to write 73 books and sell more than 24 million copies. I personally took pages of notes.
  • Charlie Wetzel, John’s long-time collaborator, shared how he and John work together to hone and polish every book, how they engineer it from the beginning with the marketing in mind, and what you need to consider if you want to work with a writer.
  • I talked about why you need a platform if you are going to succeed as an author and then laid out my five-step formula for building one, based on my experience in building my own platform. I shared how I used these exact principles to get my new book on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller lists.
  • We concluded the day with a Q&A with the entire audience. John, Charlie, and I answered as many questions as we could squeeze in. We discussed every aspect of publishing, from the psychological challenges we all face in creating our art to the pros and cons of self-publishing.

As I mentioned at the first of this e-mail, I have some great news. John’s team recorded every minute of this conference on video. And now they are making it available to you—for a limited time.

    I tried to get the free 30-day ticket and I see it’s $99.  I can’t tell when you published this post, so is the offer expired?  If not, how do I get the free virtual ticket?  Thanks.

    This is amazing.  I wanted to be in West Palm Beach, but couldn’t make it happen.  SO grateful for this!

    I just ordered it. My goal is the next time this event happens, I am actually in attendance with at least one published book!

    Anybody having trouble getting a response from the John Maxwell team after purchasing a virtual seat?  I purchased my virtual seat the day of this post and my receipt confirmation indicated I would be receiving a detailed email but the email never came.  John Maxwell is added to my white list and nothing showed up in my junk mail.  I’ve emailed John Maxwell customer service twice with no response and also left one message at his 1-800 and have received no response. I’m very disappointed.  Anyone else having the same problem or have any suggestions as to how to handle? Thanks, Rebecca

      I haven’t had a similar issue. My detailed e-mail came through pretty quickly. Sorry that’s giving you some trouble. I’m also surprised that John Maxwell’s organization would not be very responsive.

        Dollan – Thanks so much for your response. Glad to hear others aren’t having the same difficulties. Perhaps it was just a qwirk with my order. Hopefully I’ll hear back from someone soon. I’m dying to watch the program. It sounds phenomenal. Hope you enjoy it. Rebecca

      I’m afraid not. It was truly a limited offer. You can check with John Maxwell’s team if you want to. Sorry.
