📙 🎂 My book had a birthday! 🎊 🎉

Hello Reader,

This week marks the 1-year anniversary of the publication of my first book, Marketing Yourself.

Here's the replay of the Launch Party. During this 45-minute video, recorded last year, you can see:

  • the book covers I (almost) used
  • the 4 levels of a Personal Platform
  • the 4 Cornerstones that elevate your platform to the next level
  • An overview of the book from Sharí Alexander, who wrote the foreword

Writing this book took me five years, because I wanted it to be good. People say it's a worthwhile read:

“There are books that you read – and there are books that you USE. Caelan has written the second kind. Consider this your action guide, implementation kit, and field manual for marketing success. Page after page of money making ideas that work and last.”
– David Newman, Chairman of Million Dollar Speakers Group
“The most actionable marketing book I’ve ever seen! Great step-by-step instructions with memorable examples. Loved it.”
– Derek Sivers, Author of Anything You Want
“What a great read for entrepreneurs keen to get the word out there but with no idea where to start. What I love about this book is how intensely practical it is, without the marketing-talk or fluff that can really put you off marketing yourself!
And let’s face it, if he can market himself from the jungle, you can do it from your lounge room.”
– Rebecca Houghton, CEO of BoldHR

I'm especially proud of finishing this book before the world of generative AI transformed content production. No bots were used in the creation of this book!

🎁 Here's my gift to you:

You can download the PDF or EPUB digital copy of Marketing Yourself. This is a full copy of the manuscript, and I hope it helps you grow your business and increase your impact in the world.

If it does, I'd love to hear about it on the hashtag #MarketingYourselfBook.

In last week's Magnetic Messages Masterclass, my computer froze precisely at 10:01 am. (My suspicion, for other event hosts, is: I was sharing a Zoom whiteboard in a browser window, and annotating with a couple of people, when a dozen people arrived all at once. Adding them to the meeting, and having to handle screensharing AND adding people to the Annotation...

Hello Reader, How do you handle writer's block? You decide to write, and you sit down to gather your thoughts, and...nothing happens. The blank page is taunting you. Daring you to keep silent. What I've found helpful is to start with copywriting exercises. A simple prompt that gives you a border to your canvas. This is good for getting you going - but often, when it's time to write, there's a specific function we are looking to fulfill. There's an article to write, or a brochure to create, or...
