From best-selling author to helping others write a book with Tucker Max
Tucker Max, the CMO and founder of Book-in-a-box, an amazing company that turns your idea into a book.
Tucker Max is also a very famous author, he has written three #1 New York Times Best Sellers, which have sold over 3 million copies worldwide.
He co-wrote and produced the movie based on his life/book, also titled “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell.” He was nominated to the Time Magazine 100 Most Influential List in 2009.
The story of Book in a box is super interesting . Two years ago during an entrepreneurial event someone asked him to help her out writing a book.
He accepted the challenge and got paid 10k to do so.
That one-off job didn't make Tucker think of starting an official company to helping others publish a book. It had to be until he appeared on the Lewis Howes podcast that Book in a box was really created.
During their chat Tucker mentioned that he helped that lady out to write her book. Lewis who had struggled to write his book mentioned that was a great idea. Listeners though so too and by the end of the episode he had several requests in his inbox.
Book in a box was born there and then. Over 300 books published and 5 million dollars in revenue with no signs of stopping show us that he is onto something big.
Besides Book in a box we had a great conversation on how to generate new ideas, what entrepreneurship is all about, how to create new businesses and the differences between starting a company and growing a company.
