Avoiding a Common Book-Writing Mistake With Zach Obront

In addition to membership benefits, YEC offers access to educational materials featuring successful entrepreneurs. [Note: The full benefit is YEC members only -- click here to find out if you qualify -- though everyone can find more videos on our YouTube channel, here.]

In this video clip, Zach Obront, co-founder of Book in a Box, shares the biggest mistake that many first-time authors make: trying to merge too many ideas into one book.
