How To Write Anything with Guest Laura Brown

My biggest regret in college is not having more fun. :) My second biggest regret is not taking more English and writing classes.  As a "grown up" I wish I had taken more business writing, more creative writing and more editing.  I write every day.

Though I'm not planning on going back to college any time soon, I'm grateful I found Laura Brown and her new book How To Write Anything - A Complete Guide. (P.S. Complete is an understatement.  You need to see this thing, It's thick and comprehensive.)

Join me on today's Make It Happen Radio, where I get to interview Dr. Brown on the importance of the written word and how we can overcome our shortcomings to write effectively, everything from a personal thank you note to a business press release.

Check out Laura's course on How To Overcome Writer's Block here.
