WANTcast 054: On Publishing A Book, Believing In Yourself + Saving The Planet with Ashlee Piper of Give A Sh*t
Wanna get a book published, but nervous you might not have what it takes? Wanna save the planet, but too busy shaming yourself because you don’t know if you even recycle the “right way?” Ashlee Piper’s got you covered.
Ashlee is an eco-lifestyle journalist, TV personality, and author of the new sustainable living book, Give A Sh*t: Do Good. Live Better. Save the Planet. Her work has been featured in and she’s a regular contributor for Glamour, Refinery29, The Washington Post, NBC, FOX, and more.
In this episode, Ashlee breaks down ALL the real-deal step-by-steps of getting a book published by a major publishing house (yep, even if you don’t have “connections” or tens of thousands of followers), how an idea can evolve over time to become what it’s actually meant to be (everyone needs a first draft in life!), and how we can all do our part, no matter WHAT our life looks like, to give a sh*t and save the world – literally.
Publishing a book wasn't easy. There were a lot of defeats and rejections. I could have stopped when people said no, but I always felt compelled to keep going, because it needed to be out there. - @thelilfoxes Click To Tweet
