Praise for Go Direct!
"Go Direct! is more than a book. It's a visionary manifesto that busts through the monolithic stranglehold many traditional middlemen/gatekeepers (publishers, distributors, agents, ticket brokers) impose on creative artists. Fear not! Here is an absolute way out for any writer, musician, comedian, or artist, if one is willing to take a risk. And Jim Kukral leads the way. His wise new book ratchets up the revolution of indie creativity and empowers all content creators to overhaul the way they think about the future of their craft and reaching a global audience - without a gatekeeper. See Louis C.K. See Macklemore, J.K. Rowling, Beyonce, Amanda Palmer, and others. As a writer, I'm thrilled to put the work Go Direct! has done for me into practice. Now."

About the Book
The middleman/gatekeeper is scared, and rightfully so. Every day we’re seeing people like musicians, comedians, bloggers, entrepreneurs, authors and general subject-matter experts and content creators figure out that they can use the power of the Internet to Go Direct! to their fans and customers and still profit and grow their brands. In fact, never before in the history of the world have the content creators had so much power and reach.
And that’s a good thing. (Unless you’re a middleman or gatekeeper).
Yes, they are in trouble. For far too long they’ve been profiting off of our hard work and ideas; skimming from our till, so to speak. Consider this idea. If you could sell directly to your customer and not pay someone in the middle, would you? If you could produce your art or or your music and get it to your true fans directly without someone in the middle telling you if it was good enough, would you?
