This book details my story of interviewing small business owners in my local community of Austin, TX and the lessons I came away with. It was a personal project over 21-days of collecting their stories through interviews and writing/blogging all about it on my blog. I also recorded all the interviews and uploaded them to soundcloud.
The book also doubles as a guide to help you do something similar in your own local community. It's to help you get out of your comfort zone a bit, get out there, collect stories from people you'd like to learn from, build relationships, and pick up some key skills in writing/blogging, communication, and general people skills.
What you'll learn:
Chiefly writing, communication, and people skills. Here's a closer look below.
1. Learn how to take initiative right where you are and start a project without waiting for someone to tell you to.
2. Learn the power of writing as a strong platform for any project.
3. Learn how to present an idea (your project) before a professional or a business owner, and on a win-win basis.
4. Learn how to set appointments and make them stick.
5. Learn why fear has no place in your heart if you are out there to do good.
6. Learn how to write daily blog posts while the project is ongoing and improve your writing skills.
7. Learn how to interview people in an easy and natural way.
What's more? One of the most important and cheapest tool you can use to get going you already have in your pocket, if you have a smart phone.
What Others Have Said:
What a great concept!
---Julie Young, Early Reader
Wow, just read the first part, and it got me excited to go out and do some projects like you did... it gave me confidence because you identified with my fears, yet you still did it. Amazing! Thanks, you really have a gift of writing. I felt you were vulnerable, yet effective because of it. You appeared to me as small, and yet large. Small going through the challenges, and large having gone through them, and teaching us to do the same
---Fritz Scanlan, Early Reader
Kingston is a unique individual with a vision not unlike many others who have the spirit of help. Most business owners at the end of the day are simply there to help. Kingston has developed an understanding of this, and is wiling to share it in his book. This can be adopted and mixed by individuals who share this vision and want to help others
--Lee Rector, business owner (Interviewed as part of the project).
I have also included an example of an interview I did with a cafe shop owner, plus 5 audio readings I did of some key sections of the book for your listening pleasure. Hear me chat with a good local business owner and listen to me read sections of the book like an audio book.
Plus a 21-page workbook on how to connect your passion to your project, if you decide to work on one. I worked on a small business project. You could work on a project to interview chefs, police officers, computer programmers, teachers, pastors, or any other group of professionals in an industry you have an interest in. Don't forget, you will come away with a story and new relationships that could be crucial to your future.
Also, you could make the most of the 15 question to help you find what you are passionate about, if you don't already know.
Special Offer: My great joy will be that you use the book, take action, and learn from it all---It could change your life. For those who do, if your project is positive and creates good in the world, ( whether it's a 7, 10, or 14, or a full 21 days project) I will like to feature your story ( using your project title, a short summary of your lessons, and website in my update to the book about a month or two from now. This is a way of getting your story out there and encouraging others too.)
