Just in Time for a Break

As I am in the process of publish my first book on tea, I plan for launching a tea party, a late summer break, and a kick-start of a new career path as an author and a guide on how to make the perfect cuppa.

I have created an account on CreateSpace and I have ordered 10 International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN) from the National Library of Sweden. I will order a small print-on-demand batch from a local printer in Gothenburg. When I have a copy of the hardcover book in my hand, I will take some time and celebrate. I got very inspired by the episode, Taking Breaks, of Creative Minds podcast.

This has been a long journey from tinkering on the topic, writing, and self-publishing the book. And now it is time to think about the launch and marketing of the book. After I had published the latest blog post, Remembering the Copper Pot,  I watched a webinar with Tim Grahl. I had bought his first book, Your First 1000 Copies, around the same time (2013)  I got the idea to write a book on tea. I am now going through Tim’s course, Launch a Bestseller.

For your information, I have the following individuals in the pipeline as future guests: Carina RideniusBrian Phillips, and a follow-up conversation with Jon Ferrara. Please, check out the blog post with show notes with links to my guests.

I have come to the conclusion that I will shoot for at least one episode per month of this podcast, as I am involved in so many other podcasts at the moment (AvianiHemberedskapManagement StudioMenyPoddenPen Meets PaperProduktivitéetPoddRadio), as a host, co-host, and a producer.

With that said, and to show that I have a Message, I am planning a new podcast together with an individual, working in an industry that could be interesting for my fellow podcasters and other content creators. I will never stop learning, so I will also start another podcast on tea.

Talking about learning, I am eager to learn more about tea, but I am not sure that I will become a tea sommelier, or tea master in the near future... I am planning to take some more courses, e.g., by Being Tea, and participate in tea tastings. I will become a member of the American Specialty Tea Alliance.

My goal is to visit different tea plantations in North America, and other places around the world. I will visit Sweden’s second tea plantation (Greta’s tea) in the making later on this moth, and I want to visit Camellia Sinensis Gotlandin the near future. 

I want to end this episode and ask you to visit the support page on EGO NetCastand if you want to keep learning, get a free audiobook from Audible:
