230 How I Crowdsourced Feedback on my New Book, "Job Free"


My new book,  Job Free: Four Ways to Quit the Rat Race and Achieve Financial Freedom on Your Termsis now available. I had an amazing experience getting feedback during the writing of this book. 165 people agreed to be beta readers during development. I received edited versions of the manuscript (with detailed comments) back from 85 people. That's a lot of feedback!

This episode is about the process of crowdsourcing feedback, using the example of my experience writing Job Free. I describe the workflows, tools and benefits of crowdsourcing feedback. I also tell you all about my new book, and explain how it can help you achieve real freedom in your own life.
